Went here as part of a business conference with a large group. Wait staff was extremely capable. The soup (some sort of squash base I think) and dessert courses were particularly great. Had a pino bianco wine that was excellent. A good atmosphere for conversation. It was about a 20 min walk from the lake/river touristy areas but would be... More

Just had a wonderful meal with great service from Zuelinda! The red polenta was ver tasty and the Austrian Pinot Noir was superb. We couldn't stop eating the bread! Try this place. You won't be disappointed. If you are only an english speaker they welcome you warmly as well. John

We chose this restaurant based on TA reviews and it's proximity to our accommodation. It's quiet little restaurant, but well furnished. We were greeted at the door by a charismatic waiter who immediately picked up on the fact we don't speak German and was warm and welcoming. We chose the veal shank (all organic and sourced locally), and the chilli... More

We had dinner here after reading reviews on TA. Carsten was our waiter and he stole the show. Charming attentive and extremely helpful he helped us choose the seasonal soup and venison. He had a great sense of humor and even gave us an umberella since rain was in the forcast for the next day. The food was good and... More

My girlfriend and I decided on the Hofgarten for our first night stay through other tripadvisor reviews and the fact they could accommodate gluten free meals. We walked in without a reservation and were greeted warmly. The interior restaurant is intimate and a nice setting for a romantic meal. Our waitress was very nice and spoke at least three different... More

Fresh and tasty food - is my one line review for this place. Cosy atmosphere and good wines to top it all. I had the beef strips with rice and potatoes - all of which... More

Just steps away from the tourist heavy riverside restaurant. Its open kitchen and garden atmostphere was welcoming and their meals were well prepared. We loved their beef strip and veal. Best meal we've had in Lucerne.

We had lunch in that restaurant, it is located in the center of Lucerne but tucked away in a quiet garden, a pleasant break if you have been walking up and down the city. The service is friendly, you can actually see what goes oj in the kitchen as it has glass walls. This is a traditional cuisine made of... More
