This restaurant is located outside the normal tourist area. The variety quality and presentation of the food was outstanding. It was the best we had in Switzerland. Service was superior to anything we had on this trip and the server spoke perfect English in this Spanish restaurant.

We stayed at the Cascada Hotel in June 2014. Bolero is the house restaurant. A relatively cozy space, we were intrigued by the tapas buffet. There are two fixed price sizes plates from which you can choose. Being hungry after a long day on the lake, we each chose a large plate. You may make only one trip to the... More

Dear Paul C Thank you very much for sharing your impressions about our BOLERO restaurant. The daily buffet with fresh homemade tapas we offer every evening from 5 pm to 11 pm. One of our former trainees had this idea and we are satisfied we realized the proposal. We are looking forward to welcome you another time. More

The food at Bolero was delicious and a nice change from all of the Swiss food that we had been eating during our visit. The restaurant is quiet and comfortable and the service was great. The prices were not too outrageous for a meal in Switzerland either.

Environment is nice, very friendly n professional staff with excellent food. We had celebrated bday with my fd there. I had written an email to ask them to write happy bday on the dessert. Even we don't remind them they still remember which really impressed us. Definitely a gd choice for fine dining.

Close to train station and old city the Bolero restaurant was a vivid surprise. We went for dinner. Checked the tappas buffet as well as various spanish-style dishes and enjoyed them all!!! The dishes where top designed and the tastes were sofisticated.

We had some bites from the delicious Tapas Bar and then "Penne flambé" served at the table. Our children loved to watch the procedure in which alcohol was added to a penne in a holed cheese wheel in order to create a burst of flames

My wife and I read that Bolero is a top rated restaurant in Luzern. We were not disappointed. The waiter was friendly, recommended a good red wine and provided excellent service. Food was hot and right portion for both of us. Desert was a very nice sorbet and glacé presented with tiny artistic slices of fruit.

I saw good reviews on this restaurant in the hotel and tried it. Tapas a la carte is really good but needs reservation though. Highly recommended!

This restaurant seemed to be quite popular and was quickly full. We arrived around 7:00 pm and had to be seated in the lounge area. Soon afterwards there were no more seats. The drinks (cocktails) were very sweet and tasted mainly of syrup, and lacks finesse and balance. The calamari fritters were rather soggy when arrived and quickly deteriorated to... More

Do not walk in into this restaurant/bar of the Hotel Cascada without reservations. It gets really full! If you don't mind waiting, this is a great place to cool down your heels after a walk in Lucerne. A good 10-12 minutes walk from the Old Town, this restaurant bar specialises in Spanish tapas. Their tapas buffet has two choice: small... More
