Outstanding service and food

The four of us had been traveling for over a week on a Rhine River Cruise and were looking for something a little different and within walking distance of our hotel. Boy, did we strike it rich. Bolero is nothing if not charming. We enjoyed perusing the menu while we leisurely enjoyed our wine and... read more

Lucerne was the last stop on a 23 day holiday in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. We usually try to end with a very nice meal and this well regarded restaurant just happened to be in the hotel in which we are staying. How could we end the trip anywhere else. This is a restaurant that specializes in Spanish fare and... More

Went here based on the review, and wasn't so lucky. The title says it all. Service is good though. Others like their meal, but nothing special. Atmosphere is not the greatest either: looks like a train station restaurant...

The restaurant is a wonderful place to get authentic Spanish tapas but there are several dinner items as well, including paella. The 6 people in our party all chose the tapas buffet. You can choose the small plate off the large one, depending on your appetite and how skillfully you stack the tapas. We each chose the large plate and... More

Excellent food, friendly service and a lovely room add up to a delightful dining experience. The tapas buffet is a great starter, with a baker's dozen of warm and cold choices that you choose and plate yourself. Cost is based on which size plate you choose; large, 28chf, small, 18chf and only your appetite and architectural skills determine how high... More

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.
