Good place to get traditional swiss-german food at reasonable (for Switzerland) prices. Try the Rosti. Also, Mac & cheese with potatoes for you carb fix.

Excellent rosti and Swiss meat dishes with very good service. Compared to other "like" restaurants in the Old Town area prices were as reasonable as any can be in Lucerne. Wine prices and pours were especially reasonable, when compared to other restaurants in Altstadt and Neustadt. Would definitely go back. It was a lively place.

Medieval in style and age. Series of small dining areas dating to circa 1000. Good food and wine. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant on Burgerstrasse also has many tables along the river, near the lock. We were lucky enough to get one, and it made a lovely dining experience. Our dinners were very good (portions were huge), and we enjoyed the Edelspez beer that the server recommended. Our server did not speak English, and we did not have English menus, but... More

We started out with the house Tuscan wine which was excellent. The food we ordered was very good with excellent service. Our only exception was that the menu was lacking in lighter options for eating. It was heavy on game and pork, which was ok for my husband. The meal sizes portions were hearty. The pumpkin soup was very good.... More

Went there last night with friends to enjoy a traditional Swiss meal, that did not involve cheese fondue! I could not recognize the majority of the dishes but felt adventurous and ordered a Veal Kidney dish with potatoes and it was wholesome and plain lovely. I could have had 2 of these dishes. We also had prune sorbet and it... More

Great location but average food and service. Wasn't impressed either way. We had the meatloaf (ok), the gazpacho soup (terrible), and a side of Potato salad (good). Probably will not return bc it was nothing special other than the location (right next to the river).

Great atmosphere with a friendly staff that didn't mind we could not speak Swiss German. The Carrot/Coconut Soup was fantastic definitely a must. All 3 meals were cooked perfectly and the price was comparable to everywhere else we have eaten.

Wonderful evening and good regular Swiss food that is not overpriced. Suggest you make reservations to get a good table by the water. Service is good and they do their best to keep you happy

Taube (Dove) is a restaurant serving very good quality traditional food at reasonable prices (by Swiss standards at any rate). The dining areas are small, quaint and cosy in character. The wait staff are very cheerful, efficient and speak several languages. Food is very good. On the first evening we dined here we had a pike/perch salad. It was superb... More
