“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Although we had no reservation we were welcome. Our table was near the window overlooking the river Reuss ant it was very pleasant. The personal was nice, our server attentive. The menu du jour was good and reasonably priced: salad, filet of lamb with roasted potatoes and vegetables. The panelled walls give a warm atmosphere and the tables are nicely set.

“Schiff: interesting place where to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The restaurant is located inside Schiff Hotel, overlooks the Reuss River (booking a table near a window is a must!)
The atmosphere is warm, woody, soft.
Schiff serves traditional Swiss food, well cooked, in generous portion; we tasted one of the best chügelipastete (a puff- pastry shell filled with diced veal and mushrooms in a creamy sauce) in Lucerne.
Considering the fact that dining in Lucerne is quite expensive,Schiff is all in all affordable:
we spent around 60-70 Chf each for entree+main dish+beer

“pizza at Schiff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

In two visits to Luzern, we came to enjoy the light pizza (called "tarts" on the menu) at the restaurant associated with the Schiff (not Shiff) Hotel. There is riverside seating and pizza can be ordered relatively late (after concerts). The pizza has a thin, crunchy crust and our favorite is the version with rocket, nice for a lighter or late meal.
