After eating an expensive meal at des Balances one night, we went in search of more moderately priced food the next. This was a good find. We had a very high-quality meal in a beautiful garden setting. The gazpacho was fresh and delicious. Our Lucerne-style hens were an entire hen(!). No skimpy portions.

The weather was good and we were able to have breakfast and dinner in the delightful courtyard. Our studio room was light and airy as well as comfortable. The hotel is well located being only a few minutes... More

What a wonderful afternoon lunch venue. The service was friendly and top quality. This restaurant is just off the main Löwenstrasse a little hidden away- but what a special treat. The courses we enjoyed included a salad bowl, chicken and fresh vegetables, and a pesto pasta dish. We ended lunch with fresh strawberries and home made ice cream . What... More

Excellent food and fantastic service!!! The breakfast was included in the room rate we paid and the dinner was reasonably priced considering you are in Switzerland

My sister and I are both gluten intolerant and were worried about finding a restaurant in Lucerne that could accomodate our food issues. The Hofgarten Restaurant was recommended to us by a woman at the Tourist office at the Banhof as a great place for vegetarian and also gluten free. The food was wonderful! Very fresh ingredients and lots of... More

A great surprise despite "you get what you pay for". We had just come off a big day and did not want to travel far so our desk clerk suggested this place. A great choice. The staff were amazing, friendly and attentive (Zuelinda) and suggested the lamb for me and the pasta for my wife. Both were mouth watering, the... More

This is not inexpensive, but food and service are top-notch. I had lamb and wife had shrimp. Owner asked if she lliked it spicy, she said yes.... she got it! Too HOT for me but she loved it. I love lamb and this was excellent. Very nice setting and service was very attentive. Nice evening in a beautiful city.

A nice restaurant with friendly staff.... Chef is ready to do his extra bit to fit into ones taste. Their tomato soup was almost close to the best (if not the best) tomato soup i ever had and lamb is one of their speciality.
