After spending a cold rainy morning walking Lucerne we stumbled upon this restaurant hungry and wet. They quickly accommodated our party of 4 for lunch; however we were ushered to the rear of the building, back in a wine cellar room. There was only one other party there and they were finishing up. At first we thought we were seated... More

the combination of a good menu with plenty (but not too much) choice, excellent food, atmosphere and particularly the really pleasant and friendly service all contributed to a really nice evening. We visited Opus somewhat by chance (we could see it from our hotel room and having been out all day on a beautifully cold and snowy day) we didn't... More

I found this restaurant via Trip Advisor and I am very glad I tried it. Dining in Switzerland is expensive and you want to know you are getting a quality meal... OPUS delivers. The restaurant is chic and trendy and staffed by friendly and helpful staff. My food was delicious, the wine a perfect match, and the bill was acceptable... More

Had an early dinner here and we're able to get in without a reservation as a result. Nice location by the water and very well designed inside. Our waitress was terrific...absolutely made the evening. An extensive wine list by the glass. Good food, though I would not say great. The Thai curry was very mild and the risotto was too... More

After a morning exploring Luzern we decided a glass of wine was well deserved. We had a lovely Swiss wine Les Fleurines Epesses Rouge which turned into a bottle. My only complaint is the waiter was rude.

I had lunch here today with my partner, everything was really lovely. My lamb cutlets however were too underdone for my personal liking, so I asked them if it was possible to cook them a little longer and this was no issue - the staff were happy to help. We were served by two lovely young waiters, both very friendly... More

We were at the end of a river cruise on an extension to Lucern. Our local host recommended this restaurant as one of his favorites. We took him at his word and were pleased. I had sea bass with risotto and my husband had duck. Both were well prepared. Our only concern was the price! But, we had been warned... More

We stopped in for lunch and were not disappointed. I had the cannelloni stuffed with spinach and my friend had the pumpkin soup with garlic bread. Both were very good. They had a table with many different kinds of bread that you could help yourself. This was a nice touch. The menu was also in English so it was easy... More

Had game (fall is the season). Good, nothing special either way. Coupe Danemark for desert, pretty standard. But they did double-up the chocolate portion on my wish, and it's real melted chocolate... Would go back.

My friends and I dined here on the 'off chance' and we were not disappointed. It was busy but this added to the atmosphere. The service was excellent and very friendly. There was a wide range of dishes available and we all enjoyed our individual choices. We chose a good Swiss wine which was very palatable and not too expensive.... More
