Best fries!

This restaurant was very impressive. They have a lot of variety and every dish we got was delicious. This was our best meal in Switzerland.

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

Since asparagus was in season, we had to have the special. We were not disappointed- the pasta was paper thin and cooked to perfection. We were seated in front of the kitchen and were entertained by the chefs. What a group of masters! Thanks for the great service.

This place is a real surprise given the touristic environment and crowds. The service is personal and friendly. People give you a real smile and attention. Setup is comfortable and mix between a brasserie and easy restaurant style. Slightly modern but with better chairs a longer dinner definitely would be more comfortable. In any case the portion are serious so... More

As per Tripadvisor they are the top 7 of Luzern so our expectation is very high. However with such expensive price I think their food could be better. We tried the veal which was not that soft. The beef tartare was a bit too sour for me. The prawn and the cream soup were ok. Their waitress was nice. The... More

I teased the servers (We had 2) that I didn't really want to do a review. For selfishly, if this restaurant gets the recognition it deserves and earns, it could be difficult to get a table. We were genuinely treated like heads of state, royalty, or someone special rather than just another customer. If someone ate the last piece of... More
