Excellent food

Excellent selection of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food! The house specialities were really good and the service was quite warm. Wines overpriced though!! Set up was good.

This was my most favourite restaurant in Lucerene. My elderly father and I ate here 3 times during our 10 day stay. The setting is lovely sitting outside in a courtyard. The manager is friendly, attentive and with a good sense of humour. You can select a small portion size on many of the dishes which was great. It has... More

We liked the tripadvisor reviews of this restaurant and booked a table for dinner on 11 July. We sat in the hotel’s walled garden and I started with a salad bowl of crispy seasonal leaves, carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, lentils, celeriac, couscous and much more. It was by far the best salad I have ever had! The portion size was... More

We visited the place thanks to an invitation from some Swiss friends of mine. The food was good. The place was previously vegetarian I believe but there is a very good meat menu. And it comes in English too. Desserts are great. It is expensive but I would recommend it.

The restaurant it is located 10 minutes away from the tourist area of Luzern. The environment of the terrace is very nice. The service is very professional and helpful. The food is delightful, based on the local coussine, with modern incorporations without any extravaganza. I ordered the boiled beef with lemon potatoes which was simply petect. The prizes are overrated,... More

This small and casual hotel restaurant near our large and fancy hotel was a wonderful experience for dinner and breakfast. Service was exquisite with such friendly servers. My meal of asparagus filled ravioli was a total delight. We returned for two mornings for breakfast as we enjoyed our dinner there so much. The bread in this restaurant was wonderful. See... More

The menu was fresh & well executed. They have small portion sizes as an option - so we opted to have a smaller portion of a main as our starter to share. Every course was delicious. Our favourite meal of an 8 day trip. The kitchen is open plan so you can see the food being prepared every step of... More
