We had our lunch here today and enjoyed a well prepared farmer sausage with rösti potatoes and onion sauce. We started with a lovely onion soup, followed by a nice salad. The staff is friendly and appear to enjoy their duty. Will return here on our next visit to Lucerne.

I was here 4 years ago and it was just as good this time. An outdoor café (although indoor seating is available), right along the river; it is a great atmosphere. It has an extensive wine list, without exaggerated prices. The food is excellent as well.

My wife and I enjoyed the OPUS Restaurant in the heart of Luzern along the south bank of the River Reuss whether it was for brunch, lunch or dinner after attending a performance at the KKL. The food was always delicious and we even purchased their unique Parmesan Cheese Grinder as a souvenir from our visit to Switzerland. Brunch was... More

Before attending a concert at the KKL in Lucerne with my girlfriend, we went for dinner at Opus. The staff was friendly as writing to reserve a table earlier in the day proved to be a good idea. The menu features a large selection of Italian specialties and some local flare. The service was very friendly, though we would have... More

In September 2014, my wife and I accompanied by three friends had supper at the Opus Restaurant. The food was fair, the wine expensive and service slow. Not worth a visit with so many other good locations to choose from.

This restaurant has a vinotheque with a large selection of wines, not cheap but one is able t get reasonably priced wine as well. We were there on a warm summer evening and sat outside near the river - great views on the different hotels and eating establishments along the river. The restaurant has a Mediterranean orientation with an antipasti... More

The location appears wonderful as you sit looking across the river then realise the hoards of passing tourists are staring at what everybody is eating. The wine list starts of about 60 CHF (£40) a bottle and quickly increases from there so two of you would soon end up with a bill of 200 CHF for a starter, main and... More

Firstly, the location is hard to beat. I was looking for a nice place to eat after being in Lucerne on business and having a taxing day, and I certainly found one. The restaurant is located on the river Reuss, halfway between Lucerne's two historic wooden bridges, and If you're lucky to be able to sit outside in good weather,... More

Good menu served in pleasant, relaxed surroundings with excellent friendly, efficient service. What sets this place apart is its extensive wine selection served with very helpful advice and guidance. Well worth a visit.

Had dinner there one night...the salad bar was really delicious..You pay by the size of the plate...small, medium or large. Excellent selection of food...I was told by our server that water costs, but if I have a drink, the water is free. I had a local white wine (think it was cheaper that the water) and enjoyed it with the... More
