Finding good value for money might be a challenge in Switzerland, but this is definitely not the right spot. We ended here in a rainy night, after a long flight. Average food, average setting, good beer and wine, very high prices. The atmosphere is not very romantic, but will do for a dinner in two. If no much alternatives, it's... More

Surly, unfriendly, slow service! Average food and poor value for money! Devoid of atmosphere ... Bizarrely busy... Avoid!

This is an old favourite from my working days in Luzern where we would rustle up the the troops for a team lunch, so it was nice to return after a prolonged absence. The wings are suitably crispy, but I have to say that they seemed to be harder and dryer than how I remember them. You can be lucky... More

The restaurant is like a french Brasserie. The service is a bit average. But the restaurant is renowned for its chicken wings which are indeed outstanding.

Pouletflügeli and sauce excellent. I've had a loyalty card since I moved to the area. 10 portions of chicken wings (Pouletflügeli) gets you one free portion and I've filled more than one card! Unfussy, friendly place with lots if loyal, local customers.

I ordered chicken wings that were served with an amazing sauce, very good choice, the other dish tried was a salad with shrimps also very nice but I think the chicken wings... More
