A wonderful homey Meal On a Stormy, snowy Winter night, after a long working day. With the familiar atmosphere, you'll feel like you're at a friend's house. Loved the porc chops.

Cozy charming excellent food. I did not have a reservation but I was early (6:30pm) and was seated almost immediately. The restaurant is simply but warmly decorated. I started with the potato soup with Swiss vodka fondue. Beautifully presented. Excellent taste. I then had the rosti with creamed vegetables. I have eaten a variety of rosti over the years and...

This was the best meal of our trip. As soon as I saw the little pots on the Trip Advisor website, I knew I wanted to eat here. We went here hungry without reservations and were welcomed warmly and seated after 5 minutes. We arrived early, around 6:30 pm, and would not have got a table if we had arrived... More

I took my parents on a day trip to Lucern and based my choice of lunch place following glowing reviews of this cafe. We were not as impressed as other authors, I must say. The concept of starters is bizarre, as the establishment serves minuscule portions in tiny pots - 10 grams of smoked salmon and about 50 ml of... More

Their menu is small, but I started with their three soup starter, and then had the lamb which was served in two parts, seperately which was interesting. You could tell everything was good, quality food. I had made a reservation on ForATable, which didn't seem to get through to the restaurant, but they accommodated me anyway with smiles. It was...

Having read all the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, I was sure not to miss an evening at this restaurant. The food was good, presented in a charming manner. Okay, I may be the only reviewer to have this experience BUT I found our waiter to be flip and arrogant. Not Swiss "charming" flip and arrogant. I'll give him a pass,... More

This is a small, warm and cozy restaurant with just a few tables. They have a decent wine list and offer a variety of appetizers crafted in small glass jars, together with mains meat, fish, vegetables only). The appetizers are tasty and adventurous, intriguing and good value. The mains are good, solid platters (I tried the fish from lake Luzern,... More

I'll need to add another glowing review to the pile. Our dinner at Stern was delicious, well presented and good value for money (taking in to account many restaurants in the same area, what stern had to offer is so much more at a lower cost). The service was excellent also. We loved the cosy dining room. The starters in... More
