Very friendly staff yet the price range indicated is not accurate, $ maybe for a hotel restaurant but not in general I'd say its a $$$ or $$ at least!

Staff was wonderful, and the atmosphere was glorious. The bread was delicious and we kept ordering more. The food was ok. Not worth the price (but everything is expensive in Lucerne) I had the pork chop and my husband the salmon.

Enjoyed an evening meal at the Hotel Hofgarten as non-residents in their garden restaurant and came back for our final meal of the holiday. Service was great, friendly and approachable (making jokes in English - clearly non-German speaking tourists stand out a mile!). The menu has a select range of really good dishes with broad appeal, including organic and locally... More

This hotel is a great choice of you are trying to travel on a budget, especially in Switzerland. The hotel is perfectly located a block from lake Luzern and right on the main bus line to the train station. Several excellent restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel is bare-bones but clean. The staff is efficient and friendly.

We stumbled upon this place and so glad we did. We had the chicken and pork chops. We loved every bite. Don't forget to order dessert. The strawberry dream and chocolate cake are to die for.😋

Made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary at Hofgarten because the environment seemed to be traditional - wanted to try something 'Swiss Made'. We would arrive late in the evening so it would be better for us to stay in the Hotel for dinner too. It rained heavily when we left Lucerne Station at 7:35pm. With heavy luggage it was... More

We ate on Monday night and the place was fairly empty, but from previous visits by colleagues it is usually fairly crowded most days of the week. We ate a full dinner and everything was very tasty. We really enjoyed the beef tartar prepared tableside by the manager - he is very funny and it came out perfect. Wine parings... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant last week while in Lucerne. Glad we did! The Swiss wines were outstanding and so were our dishes. It felt upscale inside (we had our blue jeans on due to sightseeing on a rainy day) but they treated us with the utmost hospitality. Great place. Fyi...the ravioli with almond butter and asparagus is light and... More
