We were staying in the hotel and as it was raining we decided just to eat here- I'm so glad it rained! This was the most delicious meal in our month of eating out in our trip across Europe. The appetiser jars were amazing and the pork scrummy. The wait staff were so lovely- friendly without being intrusive. Such a... More

After reading good reviews of this Swiss Food restaurant we really wanted to try it during our three day stay in Luzern. What a wonderful meal. We were a party of four who were totally delighted by our wonderful waiter Michael. His suggestions were right on. The restaurant started us off with a special appetizer from the kitchen.

We had our first meal in Lucerne and did not know what to expect. The food was only average but the warm chocolate cake was good. The price of the restaurant was towards the expensive side, and was certainly not worth it for the quality of food provided.

This is a small, casual, local place highly rated on Tripadvisor. Enjoyed dinner last night so much, we returned tonight. This is a great restaurant. Our server, Michael, was friendly and fun. Service was excellent. The "Hello" treat from the Chef both nights was terrific. The starters in the jars are wonderful--goat cheese is a standout. Schnitzel is perfect. Minced... More

This was the second time I had dinner at Stern in the last month, and there are a few reasons I returned: the lovely relaxed atmosphere with a chic yet simple decor, tasty, fresh and well presented food and very friendly service. No doubt I will be back again soon!

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
