Great food, charming wait staff

We stumbled upon this gem later in the evening. Very friendly waitstaff who was happy to try out her English with us for which we were thankful. The food innovative and delicious. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but all in all, a good value. Casual yet cozy ambience.

I eating here the best, for my opinion, tartar. Good soups, not trivial. Other things are as usual. Not recommended for dinner

We had a large family group with little kids and our server was very helpful and patient with us. The avocado tartar and chicken pot pie were especially amazing!

The restaurant was pretty full, but was able to squeeze in our party of 3 for up to 1.5 hours. We felt a little rushed so couldn't relax as much as we would have liked even in keeping with our time commitment. I had some sort of pasta dish that was okay, but nothing spectacular (it had fried fennel and... More

Excellent quality experience and top employees in this perfect place to eat in Lucerne. Don't miss to drop-in, as this concept will convince you not just once, but for every single experience. Outside seating next to the river in middle of town. Not even expensive, but with good wine selection even for a take-away. I will be back and recommend... More

With lots of choices for dining in Lucerne the Pumpkin Gnocchi and mussels caught my eye on the outdoor menu we returned later for dinner and were lucky to get a table. Unfortunately the mussels are only available on Wednesday. I did order the Pumpkin Gnocchi which was very good we also had Boulibasse and a salad bar. Food was... More

My friend and I arrived in Lucerne pretty late and very hungry! We took the hotel front desk recommendation as "not too touristy and good local restaurant... " It exceeded all expectations for sure. The menu had variety along with a nice seasonal menu addition. The wine list was suitable for all tastes. The waiter was the best.. so friendly... More

This summer my wife and I found OPUS to be every bit as good as we remember from our first visit last summer (see my September 2014 Review of OPUS entitled, “Superb Location, Food & Service”). Our dinner was bountiful and delicious as it was last year. There is an extensive menu, and the service was friendly, attentive and efficient.... More

We went here to experience some of the local white wine. Then we decided to stay for dinner. We did enjoy the wine and the look of the restaurant. It may have been made from a wine cellar. We had roasted venison for dinner which was served with spatzle, purple cabbage, brussel sprouts, and roasted chestnuts. We loved it and... More

On a day trip to Lucerne we came across this restaurant, unfortunately it was 1.45pm and it would appear that many of the items on the menu were no longer available to choose as the kitchen had closed? Anyway, only items with a star next to them could be selected. We chose the chicken pot pie which was €34 and... More
