If you are looking for "local" food, look no further. This is the place where a lot of locals go. It was crowded, in mid-November when few tourists visit the city. We had venison, the traditional dish...just wonderful. Would come back here any time. Much...More

The food here is very traditional, hearty and absolutely delicious. We ordered the veal sausage with rosti, the chicken breast and fish. All 3 were really yummy! The hosts were friendly and warm. Love it here!

This is supposed to be the oldest family run restaurant in Lucerne and I was brought here by a relative that lived near the restaurant. I had high expectations for this restaurant and I have to say it was not as good as I expected....More

We almost walked away from this place because from the front entrance it almost looked closed. We are so glad that we didn't. I think people park in the back so from the front it looks like nothings going on if you approach from the...More
