We tried this place based on TA reviews. We tried the Fritschi's puff pastry pie (pastry filled with meat and vegetables) and a vegetarian pasta. Both were pretty good as was the service. Price is comparable to other Lucerne restaurants.

Our hotel has suggested this restaurant and we were happy of this. Big portions, excellent quality of food and wine, all served quickly but with a lot of style. You must tried the Neptune prawns flambed on your table.

The speciality at Lapin is flambé at the table, and it makes for a very interesting piece of theatre. We had the flambé veal, lamb and pork, very good food. Nice bottle of Swiss pinot to accompany the food (the same pinot we enjoyed at a previous restaurant except it was 28CHF cheaper). This is not a stylish restaurant being... More

Lapin, a French-inspired restaurant in a small hotel in Lucerne, was recommended by the Maitre D’ of the Old Swiss House when we went there with a group of six with no reservation (bad form, I know).
