I love tapas and paella and I love this cosy little restaurant. The food is good combine with lovely and friendly service. The price is very reasonable. The atmosphere is so cosy feel like you are in a restaurant in Spain.

Mixed salad was good. We also had kebab and sausage tapas. Staff were friendly and tried to explain to us the menu in English. Also gave sweet wine at the end. Fantastic!

Great tapas in the evening and really nice and affordable lunch menus. The waiters are sometimes a bit in a rush but they're always friendly.

This place is a gem. Tucked away on a side street it's not your run-of-the-mill Old Town bars that any tourist can walk in to. We ended up here on a cold March night with a bunch of colleagues and were surprised to find such a cheerful and laid-back place with tasty tapas and salads, cold beer and fantastic service....

We went as a group of 7 and ordered Tapas. The service was excellent and the food great. All the food was served at the same time, and the wait was no longer than you would expect for freshly prepared food. For Lucerne the price was very reasonable and good value for money. The Gambas con Jerez, and the chorizo... More

Cabanas is a great little place in new town, Lucerne. Terrific ambiance and gorgeous outdoor seating area for warmer weather. Cabanas serves a large variety of Spanish Tapas, which we love. Small plates lend a certain family atmosphere to a table and Cabanas is happy to keep them coming. I have found a few dishes overly salty, but in general... More

Looking up somewhere new to eat in Luzern we found this place thru trip advisor. The reviews were not wrong. They offer around 60 tapas to choose from warm and cold. Plus appetizers and main courses. Tapas range in price from 8 to 18 francs. The service personal recommends 2-3 tapas dishes for a evening dinner. We took 6 (3... More

Lovely food, cosy atmosphere and Maria, our waitress looked after us very well. A little away from the typical tourist traps (just along from the second wooden bridge on the opposite side from the old town). We were really please we came here!
