We came there by accident, but what a surprise. Great food, nice service. Especially a surprise in tourist spoiled restaurants in Luzern.

Many restaurants and shops close early in Luzern, but this one keeps serving the entire menu until 10PM, and stays open until 12:30AM serving apps and drinks. It's located across the river from the main historic district, but nothing's really far in the historic district -- from near the old wall to the restaurant, I'd say the walk is about... More

I had an amazing night at Stern. It’s pretty difficult to find any fault with the dinner service here (which I wasn’t looking for by the way). The food, service and atmosphere were all amazing. I had a collection of different bites whilst at the restaurant which was all seasoned and presented well in true testament to the restaurant’s style... More

I absolutely loved Stern! They had a very interesting menu and everything we had was delicious. They have a relaxing outdoor patio that's scenic and less hectic than what you'd find right downtown. I'm glad I found this one on Trip Advisor, as we never would have found it otherwise. Their pike perch was amazing, along with their asparagus and... More

We found the quality of the food varies depending on the type of dish one ordered. The starter in 3 jars was quite good and so was the month old pork chop which was very tastety. However the beef tartar was a disaster. The beef was over-powered by too much salt and spices, could hardly taste the beef at all.... More

After reading several reviews of this restaurant, I wanted to try it when we were in Lucerne. It is a casual and sweet little place located on a lovely little street next to a church. Ideal spot! It is not a dressy place at all, because sitting outside, we sat on a picnic table and shared the table with a... More
