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

Had dinner for 2, excellent terrace right at river, but food quality was average. we should have looked at Trip advisor first, but most restaurants had reservations. if you are OK with so so food but value location and mediocre Albanese street music then this is the place to go....

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...
