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

Such a great dining experience! My husband and I ate here for dinner - first off, you cannot get a better atmosphere/locale! Lots of outdoor seating, right on the water near the Chapel Bridge (so beautiful!). As soon as they realized we were American, they wisked away our German menus and brought back menus in English - we didn't even... More

I know it is a bit much to expect but I was very grateful for the menu in English. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Once again it was a relief they spoke English so well. The chicken pie was to die for!!!! The kids menu was also enticing for my daughter. Sitting by the lake just topped off... More

We had a very good meal our first night in Luzern at Opus, which is along the river in the newer side of town. My wife and I each made a meal out of the antipasti buffet, which was very reasonably priced and quite good. Some diners sat at outdoor tables, but because of iffy weather we chose to sit... More

I was only in Luzern for one day and discovered this restaurant as I was wandering round the town. It had outdoor seating overlooking the river and it was lovely just to sit and admire the view. I went for the menu of the day, which was reasonably priced by Swiss standards, and a glass of the local beer. I... More

With some friends, we spent a day in Lucerne and had dinner in this restaurant. The service was nice and friendly. We ordered a starter (selection from different Salamis, Olives, etc) which was very nice. As a main dish I chose Entrecote with fries. The entrecote was unfortunately quite cold. The rest of the food was okay, but I have... More

Very good Mediterranean food (terrific bouillabaisse), very nice cheese plate, serve-yourself bread table with just excellent breads (about 7-8 varieties), and a good cold foods buffet bar. Wines by-the-glass were few, but good. The setting is great (outdoor seating riverside, on the quiet side opposite old Town) so perhaps whereas someplace else the service might be considered a little slow... More

If you like cold food, the buffet is excellent, several cold fish dishes and numerous salads. You won't need a main course. The service is indeed a bit slow, but in this beautiful riverside setting, that doesn't matter.

I have been to Opus a few times now, and each time has been enjoyable. It has become one of our go-to girls' night restaurants. There is a delicious "salad" plate. It is 26.-CHF for this monster plate that you can fill to the rafters with shrimp, muscles, olives, artichokes, cold pastas, and of course normal salad stuff with delcious... More
