The Wilden Mann Stube (parlour) in Luzern, which has been awarded 14 points in the prestigious Gault-Millau Swiss guide, offers and elegant room for a festive dinner. With great attention to detail, head chef, Tobias Kofmel, produces creative cuisine steeped in tradition, inspired by whatever is on offer at the local market. However, he also has great ability at using his knowledge of international cuisine to great creative effect, producing his own contemporary combinations. On the menu, you will find interesting options such as tomato, herb and olive pralines accompanied by a rocket salad with Puschlaver dry-cured ham, beef fillet Stroganoff prepared at the table, or chocolate sour cream slices with a kumquat compote (stewed citrus fruit). There are always numerous options for vegetarians available on the menu. Restaurant manager, Viktor Spath, serves a great choice of outstanding wine from all over the world to accompany your meal. For those of you who wish to enjoy the culinary experience with a cigar or cigarette, it is possible to relax in either the smoker's lounge, or the smokers��� restaurant Burgerstube (Burger parlour). As a particular highlight at the Wilder Mann Stube (parlour), there are numerous events to take part in, such as the murder mystery dinners. Under the motto: a Lucullan meal for the palate, and witty criminal case to solve for the mind. A crime to solve alongside an outstanding 3 course set menu, all part of the service from the staff. All this, just to get the taste buds going.

I stayed at the Hotel Wilden Mann as a solo traveler and dined at the burgerstube for a couple of dinners. The first night I arrived late and the Burgerstube graciously sat me at a late hour. Each meal was excellent and do not miss the dessert. One meal I had the venison which was delicious! Hope to return.

Several people at our hotel recommended this restaurant, if we were looking for some Swiss ambiance and traditional Swiss food. Since Lucerne is so "walker-friendly", we checked out a few options before electing to take their lead - and boy, are we glad we did. There are two distinct dining rooms in this beautiful and historic hotel. I'm not sure... More

We chose this restaurant for dinner our last night in Lucerne and I'm glad we did. The decor of the restaurant was the first thing that stood out - it gave off a very cozy vibe.

Dear LFYanks Many thanks for choosing us for your dinner and for reviewing it on this platform. In fact, the Burgerstube is mentioned for the first time on the Lucerne history on 1517.

We enjoyed an outstanding dinner at the Burgerstube and we both agreed it was the best meal in our six days in Switzerland. After sharing a winter salad we both decided to try the meat loaf.

Before reserving a table at the Wilden Mann I couldn't make up my mind because the hotel offers two choices when it comes to eating there: the more refined Sauvage restaurant, and the more traditional Burgerstube. I love finding out about the traditions of the places I visit, so I opted for the Burgerstube. And from the moment I walked... More
