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.

We came here wanting a tradition Swiss meal and were not disappointed. Make sure you get your hotel to book you a table even if it's on the night as they are really busy - even mid week when we were there. The waitress spoke excellent English and they had an English menu as most places we went in Europe... More

It's delicious and it's very authentic. Great place to eat real good Swiss ktiche such as Kutteln, Pastetli, Riz Kazimir, Bratwurst, Cordon-Bleu, etc. Don't be afraid to take "Kutteln" (stomache). You wil not regret it. It's delicious.

Some of the food was good, though a small step below the other Lucerne restaurants we tried. There were 2 issues though, that make 3 stars appropriate. First, their risotto was terrible, soaked in a buttery substance to a semi liquid state. Secondly, the waitress messed up one of the orders .We all saw it coming due to her issue... More

A real nice old style Swiss restaurant with an excellent Swiss menu. Game season is one of its specialities.

It was very clear that locals come to have dinner and a drink here. The server knew exactly what to bring them without even taking an order. My husband states this was his favorite meal in Switzerland, he had chicken risotto. I had a pastry shell filled with veal. Mine was okay, but his was better. I was disappointed because... More

We had Wirsthaus Galliker on our list, so we stopped at 18:00 the night we arrived in Lucerne. It was a Friday, and we did not have reservations. We were treated very well; if we could be dine by 19:30, they would be most happy to work us in. Wow--what a treat. We had two delicious appetizers (the beet salad... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant because it had the most reasonable prices for an authentic Swiss experience. We were beyond pleased with the local Eichnok beer and the amazing, Swiss-style food. We both got a large beer .5 liter and 2 entrees (veal bratwurst with amazing Swiss Rosi (hash browns) and a veal pastry with some of... More

This is Lucerne - as it was years ago .... Traditional at its best.You get there real Swiss food, not pretentious, but affordable qualitiy, some reliable Swiss wines and an atmosphere that you will never forget: Cosy and friendly - and real people of Lucerne, rich and less rich - as you and I. We've enjoyed every minute there.

For me the food on my plate is not a work of art - it's the taste that counts. And this is what I felt when I came to this relaxed, old style 'stube' which has been in business for a long time now. The restaurant seems to be divided into 2 sections - one side with table cloths and... More
