We had excellent meals at The Old Swiss House restaurant, not cheap but nothing is in Switzerland. Good friendly service, superb food, varied menu. Nothing else to say.

To be fair we never ate here. Tried to eat lunch at 1:35pm, since lunch was "served" until 2pm. We were promptly told lunch ended at 2, I explained it was 1:35. Was then told, oh we have a short menu. Then she left. Waited for someone else, explained that we were here for lunch. Once again said if we... More

A very nice restaurant with a lot of antique interior. The food is excellent specially the table cooking. It has an excellent view. The staff is very helpful in ordering as the quantity is big.

Nice restaurant, but felt a bit more like a tourist trap than I personally like. Service was fine. Prices a bit high and food was just average. There are better options.

We enjoyed a meal at The Old Swiss House in Lucerne June 2016. The meal was excellent ! Had the house special Weiner schnitzel. Prepared at our table in front of us. Lot of dignitaries, royalty and movie / sports celebs are pictured throughout the restaurant. I would highly recommend this place if dining in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Looked good, smelled good and tasted fantastic! The veal stroganoff is excellent and the chocolate mousse is excellent. The inside of the restaurant is decorated in the old traditional styling...
