We ate here as we were staying at Hotel Cascada but this place is a not be missed if you are staying in Lucerne. The staff are extremely friendly and the food was delicious. This restaurant was one of our favourite of our 4 week Europe holiday.

We love Spanish food and found a great one of the type here in old city of Lucerne. Tapas are extraordinary ; gazpacho amazing and perfect, and both gambas and fajitas were amazing. We were disappointed that Paella required a two person order. There is really no reason to need a two persons order to prepare Paella since it is... More

Dear thehat921 Thank you so much for the great review, which you gave to our restaurant. We are very glad that you enjoyed our Spanish food. Because the effort is too high to prepare paella for only one person, we have the minimum number of 2 persons. We kindly thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you very... More

Our waitress, Larissa, was excellent. Ambiance is quite nice. Unfortunately, I had a large appetizer buffet platter, which was about 10 different items, an didn't much care for any of them. Only one I thought was good was cheese and marinated vegetable skewer. Chorizo was way too salty. Mostly I just didn't like the flavors. And yes, I am very... More

This restaurant was pretty good. We started with the tomato soup, which was actually phenomenal. However, I ordered the shrimp in garlic--what the menu didn't say was it was shrimp in garlic BUTTER. I try to eat really healthfully, so I was disappointed. I ate them anyway; they were very small, and incredibly overcooked. Hubby had chorizo; he said it... More

The food here is so fresh and delicious! We had the gazpacho, shrimp tapa, and the patatas bravas. All were incredible! It is not a cheap place, but nothing is cheap in Switzerland. I would say the quality of the food is worth the price.

We hit upon the place on an evening stroll near our hotel. The food was great. We had the seafood paella - very tasty, packed with fresh seafood. One minor complaint, the shrimp were large, but served with the heads and shells on. I'm on vacation, de-shelling and beheading is too much work. Good house wines and beers. our waitress... More

The food here was so good that we had dinner here one night and breakfast 2 days in a row! The house red wine was delicious and I almost purchased a bottle to take home with me. If you like Spanish food/Tapas, this is THE place to eat while visiting Lucerne!
