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.

I had to go there for the rosti. Run by a famous local chef. The rosti is a potato pancake. Really nothing compelling about that. The meal was excellent...kinda expensive. The place is very good, just not a killer in my book. A bit stiff of a place.

It's a good restaurant with nice ambiance. A bit to dark for my taste, but the building is like that. Pretty good food and a classic in Lucerne.

The food was excellent, the service was wonderful and "with a smile". The manager checked with all tables constatntly. The setting, indide is traditional Swiss, with flags, shields, etc.. What more can I say?

The chef surprised us (there were 6 of us) with a nice appetiser which he concocted for the evening. A nice touch really, we thought. The lady waitress was extremely helpful and friendly and helped our family in getting throughout the menu. We had pastas and in particular I had the pea soup with curry flavour and totally enjoyed it.... More
