After long hard research to find a 'special' location for our family Christmas eve dinner we were let down terribly. Although the starter (duck spring rolls) were delicious we had to wait over 2 hours before the main course was served. The service was terribly slow and once the food arrived the lamb (2 portions) had to be returned to... More

Modern stylish restaurant. Fusion food. Absolutely delicious and amazing food. Service impeccable; Friendly, professional and knowledgable. Lucerne prices. Circa 200 CHF per couple for starter + main + bottle of wine. Worth every single rappen !! It's that good
