Description: 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.

Very good food. Excellent service by Stiev Gartner. Would recommend it readily and go there again. Table near kitchen door not desirable.

Myself and my new wife, dropped I'm on our honeymoon for our first real dinner out. The service was wonderful, and we were quickly seated. With a small but very delicious menu we struggled to choose a main, and when I asked the very helpful waiter he suggested something from their other more traditional Swiss restraunant so we both took...

We ate here this evening and the service was impeccable and the food was just amazing! There were eight of us dining together and everyone had a wonderful meal. Our hotel told us about this restaurant and we are so glad they recommended it. A must place to try if you want an excellent swiss dinner!

Walking around lake Lucerne, we were determined to avoid the tourist traps by the water front. We decided to try this restaurant which seems to come highly recommended by a lot of travellers on TA site. We turned up without reservation but was lucky to be offered a table. Like most restaurants in Switzerland, there were never enough waiters/waitresses around,... More

Having had a disappointing, lazily served meal elsewhere in Lucerne, it was nice to be reminded what professional service is all about. Our waitress (Ruth) was friendly, helpful and attentive. A problem on a neighbouring table was handled impeccably. The food was hearty and very tasty, portions generous. The recommended wine was delicious.
