It was a great restaurant with an attentive staff. We couldn't speak German but had no difficulty in ordering wine and our meals since the staff spoke good English. I strongly recommend the appetizer with 3 jars, but our entrees were also great. I'd love to visit this restaurant again if I have a change to visit Luzern again.

Very cosy restaurant with attentive staff and great food. Prices are slightly above average, especially for food. The have good deals for lunch. Alcohol is reasonably priced. Beware that one bottle of still water (0,5L) is 6.90 CHF. I wish restaurants in Switzerland would provide the excellent swiss tap water for free - the charge for tap water is, at... More

As others have pointed out the starters come in glass jars, it's worth selecting a range of them. All the food tried here was superb and the house wine is good enough you don't need to select anything else. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Tasty food, aesthetically presented, expertly prepared and locally sourced. Comfortable, rustic modern interior set in an historic building. Attentive, knowledgeable staff. Their recommendations are very helpful. The pacing of our meal from bread to appetizers to main courses then finally desserts and coffees was neither rushed nor too long...just right. Consider trying the "house" wine created especially for the restaurant... More

This small restaurant offers delicious dishes, some with an unexpected but greatly composed combination of ingredients and all of them very agreeable to the eye. The starters come in small glasses and you can mix from a few options so that you can try more than one. The tomato soup was just perfect!! Next to a lot of traditional restaurants... More

Outstanding in every way! Limited menu, but what they do have is very good. I highly recommend their "steak burger"...known to Americans as meatloaf, but it was so tasty! Good appetizers and outdoor patio made it great place for our group of 12 to have dinner.

We had quite a few delicious things here, even if some fell a little behind others this place deserves 5 stars. You must, must, must try the dandelion parfait for dessert.

We were seated outside at tables similar to the picnic tables we have in the US. The benches were covered with thick comfortable cushions. Also sitting at our table was another couple from the US. The street we were on was quiet and lightly traveled. Based on advise from our tour guide, we split a main dish and a salad.... More
