We met up with family and friends (about 10) for a buffet supper at The Opus and had a great time. Located right by the river it was a delight. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Although we had booked the table for 6.00 we didn't sit down to eat until much later and I was... More

We stopped for wine and a light lunch. I would recommend stopping by for wine and a snack, and to people watch. Food was adequate but expensive and service was indifferent once we got out food.

Located right on the water this is a great little restaurant to relax and enjoy the views of Lucern. We had the cannelloni and it was really good. Great wine selections as well. Definitely would recommend.

Nice location and friendly staff. Ceviche as starter was great. Perk perch for 42 Swiss francs was a big disappointment! Two tiny pieces of fish with a lot of Fish bones put on mash potatoes with olives! If the mash was very good, it is difficult to understand the price for the Fish.

We really enjoy our visits here as the service is consistently good as well as the food and wine selection. The weinkeller area is particularly nice if you want a quieter area rather than the main restaurant area (both of nice of course). Sitting outside on a sunny day next to the Reuss river is also a great way to... More

The weather has (and continues to be) awful so how lucky was I to get a perfect day on the one day in Luzern. So only outdoor restaurants with nice views were under consideration for a catchup lunch, and I am glad that I remembered this old favourite in time. The location is fabulous along the river, looking towards the... More

1st visit after re-opening with some colleagues. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed a table overseeing the Reuss. Good renovation after all and it looks really inviting and nice. Service was friendly but after a while when it became busy she was quite alone outside. I wondered why no-one from inside would come out and help ( almost... More

We dined at the Opus in the wine cellar. The food and wine was fabulous. It was the best meal we had in Switzerland. I had the pork chop and my friend had Pike fish. We both loved the food. We ordered some red wine and enjoyed it so much we bought another bottle to take back to the hotel.... More

We came across this restaurant by chance while walking Luzern and decided to give it a try. We went on a Sunday evening and there was plenty of space. We were offered to dine in the cellar, which was setup with candles in a very romantic atmosphere. Service was good, we had bruschetta as entre and then 2 mains (pork... More

Really good food and nice variety of dishes. Start with the cheese and salami platter that you go inside and choose to suit your party. Many fresh spring options with asparagus and seafood. This place was very busy so make reservations!
