Wonderful find right on the River Reuss in the center of everything

8 of us stopped there for lunch on the recommendation of the hotel where we were staying and it was a sunny day so we ate outside. We all chose the salad bar buffet for 26 Francs and 3.50 Francs to refill. Had incredible choices and everything was presented so well and the choices were plentiful... read more

Last Saturday we had lunch at the Opus. It was cold, so we could not sit outside. They have a lovely place beside the river Reuss, half sun, half shadow and no traffic noise. We were lucky to get a table for us. We had salad from the buffet and one persone chose a soupe. There are 3 different sizes... More

I have visited this restuarant many times each time as the "sponsor" for a larger group - so good business. I have always enjoy the super ambience and good food - that is until my last two visits, which now force me to put finger to keyboard. On the last occasion inattentive service prompted me to complain. I got an... More

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
