One of the trip advisor blogs recommended this place with less tourists, inviting with authentic Swiss food so my sister and I didn't hesitate to go anywhere else. As soon as we entered the restaurant, I had eye contact with 2 waitresses whom totally ignored me then another waitress with a different uniform assuming she's at a higher position looked... More

A slice of old style Swiss cooking. The traditional wooden dining room takes you right back in time. I always tend to eat the same thing a Mixed Salad, the Veal Zuricher (in a mushroom white wine sauce) with the most delicious Rosti (shredded potato fried in a pan) & the Creme Caramel for dessert Perfect!

Homey atmosphere, friendly, warm staff! Excellent meal with typical Swiss fare. Quite reasonable prices (considering how pricey meals are in Switzerland). The rosti was delicious and the veal lin pastry was superb! Highly recommend and would definitely return. Seemed to be frequented by locals which made it all the more appealing to us. Reservations appear to be required and it... More

Loved this wonderful restaurant with lots of charm. Excellent service though busy, and very good authentic food. If you like calves' liver it was excellent. Do go, but make a reservation, I just recommended to friends visiting Lucerne and they couldn't get in over their 3 night stay.

Went here with two friends for a meal. The food was very authentic and the service was very friendly. It's a good a really local and traditional vibe to it. The portions are large though the prices are quite high; then again, Switzerland is an expensive place...

What a beautiful place. The Restaurant looks like it hasn't changed in the last hundred or more years. It's like entering a pristine time capsule! The meals are traditional and delicious. It's not a cheap restaurant but all in all the prices seemed fair.

Went here tonight on recommendations from trip advisor. The place is very atmospheric. The waitress was very friendly and casual which was really nice. The tables were communal which I liked. The food tasted really good but I would not have said portions were big, they were averagely sized. Prices also were expensive, most mains were around 40 or more... More

The food was delicious and our sever was extremely helpful and accommodating in English considering we did not speak German. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Lucerne.

Very enjoyable. Was some of the best swiss food we ate the two weeks we were in Switzerland. It was also one of the most reasonable restaurants price wise as well.
