Restaurant is situated in the Hotel de la paix. The food menu is very attractive specially sea food. Only issue is it requires pre booking of tables to entertain you.

We stayed in hotel De La Paix for 2 nights and we had the best breakfast there ever. we weren't around during the day to try out the lunch and dinner menus but I am sure that would be awesome too. Special mention for the berry yoghurt with granola and the freshly baked croissants they were to die for.

In a city with a lot of tourist focused restaurants that offer perhaps a Disney version of local culture, the Lapin gives the impression of being genuine. At the time of our visit there seemed to be a number of locals among the clientele. The service was good and the food tasty, and although we weren't tempted by the local... More

Had lunch last Saturday. Reception by the head waitress was distant. We didn't feel particularly welcomed. Mistkratzer consisted of 2 wings and two legs. Inquiring about the breast, the waitress informed us, that this is the way their Mistkratzer is served and that she does not know of any other way to serve it, said it and turned on her... More

Grüezi thank you for your time to send us a review. We are sorry you did not like the mistchratzerli. It seams rather strange to serve only wings and legs, but it is the case that the mistchratzerli also named "Stubenkücken" are small. We apologize, if there has been to much salt on the meat. Usually our clients are quiet... More

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.
