Very centrally located and great food. Do try one of the grill spits flambée! My wife liked the salad buffet - I preferred the deserts! :-)

Thank you for your nice review! We are so pleased you had enjoyed your visit in our Restaurant Lapin. The flamed skewer on the table are so nice. It is not only the impression for the fire on the skewer, it is the taste which makes the clients happy. Well we hope you can make it one more time in our Restaurant and send you our best Regards

“Good food, not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We ate at this restaurant because we were staying in the accompanying hotel, and it got good reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the service is excellent. We had some lovely wines to accompany our chosen dishes. Both main courses. were very good. If not for the price, I would consider eating here again. However, it's difficult to find anything cheaper even reasonable in Switzerland.

“Great dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner here on our only night in Luzerne. They got us a table without a reservation. We hoped to have fondue and even though it wasn't on the menu, they said they could serve it, either as a starter to share or a full meal. We had fondue as a starter and tried a couple of the venison dishes. We also enjoyed a bottle of wine. The portions were very large and great value with lots of sides. No room for dessert. Worth checking out!

“Nice fondue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were looking to have a fondue for lunch and this spot was recommended. Yummy! With bread, potatoes, and fresh pineapple to dip, one serving was plenty for two!

We found this by accident one rainy evening. The food was marvelous and traditIonal. The chef has been there for 30 years. Excellent service and attention from the manager/owner.
