The restaurant Taube has a unique atmosphere with a very nice terrace next to the Reuss River. The menu is very original, written in "Schweizerdeutsch", but also in english. The kitchen is excellent and the service very friendly and competent.

Located just a short distance from the river and serving excellent local food at reasonable (for Switzerland) prices. Friendly staff. Visited on a Saturday night in August and we were only non Swiss people in the area we sat in - always a good sign.

Taube is a favorite of ours in Lucerne so we came back this year to test the quality. You can choose to sit by the river, outside the restaurant or inside. Whichever location offers charm. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is delicious and great value. I had the schnitzel with potatoes. My wife had the lamb with... More

I always believed that kindness and service are equally important - or even more- to the quality of the food itself. this place succeeded at both. Staff is warm, friendly, ready to help and explain and food was amazing. Typical swiss/german dishes come in huge portions. Try the traditional rosti (if you can eat it all, that is) Prices are...

We had dinner with the family and all the waitress were delightful and very welcoming. The menu offered was authentic and the portions were huge so no complaints! Meals were fine but nothing really particularly seductive and the choice of beers are a bit limited. We had a great time and I can only recommend that place if you want... More

We found this restaurant while walking through Old Town, and looking for a place to eat near the water. We were looking for traditional food, and we found it. We had the liver and roasted pork. The only liver I have ever liked was my mom's, so I was eager to try it. The dish did not disappoint! I loved... More

I hadn't heard anything about this restaurant (a guide later recommended it), but happened to see it as I was walking through Old Town and getting hungry. I tried a local Swiss "comfort food" dish (unfortunately, can't remember the name of it) that consists of a puffy pastry in which small veal pieces or meatballs of veal, mushrooms and a... More

If you are in Lucerne as a tourist or you are looking for a place to show some local food to your guests,voilá! this is a great place. I think prices are fair (for being in Switzerland, where every thing is overpriced) and the food is authenthic central Swiss food. Location is good, there is a parking place near by... More

The restaurant has both indoor seating and outdoor - some immediately outside the restaurant, but more on the river bank, which given the lovely weather was where we sat. Lovely views of old town and river flowing past. We chose local specialities which were both very good and generous portions. People at adjacent tables were clearly enjoying their meals too!...

After a hot day hiking Mt. Pilatus and cruising on Lake Lucerne, this restaurant provided a great end to our day. We made reservations a couple of weeks before and requested a waterside table. We went on a Friday night and the place was very busy. We were led right through all the people sitting in the waterfront area to... More
