My husband and I were looking to I immerse ourselves in the local culture. This place was perfect. It was a little tricky to find - it is on the main road with the entrance at the back, It is very traditional and basic in terms of decor and styling. It does feel like you are dining at someones house.... More

We were in Lucerne for a couple days and tried to get in here on the first night - full. So went for lunch the following day. Very busy and you share tables (not necessarily a bad thing) so went away for an hour's walk and came back about 13.30. The aged ladies who look after you are kind and... More

I was searching for the typical but not obvious swiss food and went to this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. The food was excellent and very well presented. The atmosphere is also very nice. The manager is portuguese so having someone translating the menu was a plus. Try the javali pate. Delicious.

Just had dinner here based off other Trip Advisor recommendations and I'm so glad we did! Great food, fair prices and excellent service. I had the beef stroganoff which was delicious and my husband had the veal cordon bleu which was also delicious. Yes, tourists go there for the traditional swiss food but we saw some locals there too. Great... More

After reading the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to visit this restaurant too. Boy were we happy to discover that it was just a 3mins walk from the place we are staying (Utoring An Der Reuss). We were really charmed by the warm interiors in the restaurant and the amazing service that was provided. We are a family... More

My family booked this restaurant for our final meal in Lucerne. It is located just outside the old part of Lucerne, but still a short and easy walk from Hotel des Alpes. When we were there, most all of the people were locals (a good sign), and it filled up quickly (a very good sign). We ordered several dishes -... More

Excellent food with charming ambience. Restaurant has been in family for 4 generations and the owner was very nice as he visited with each table. Incredible food...can't say enough about how good it was!

After coming to Lucerne from Frankfurt you really notice a jump in the quality of restaurants but with that also the prices to go with it. With 3 teenage children your always looking for value, ad this place offered it, it was a decent walk from our hotel, but worth it, our waitress was funny and looked after us English... More

Walked over from our hotel based on reviews we had read. We wanted authentic Swiss food and that was what we got. Two of us ordered the wiernerschnitzel, one got veal cordon blue and I got the Swiss veal. For sides we got fries, buttered noodles and the rosti potatoes. We had 3 large beers and a whiskey with coke... More
