This is the place if you are looking for an easy lunch or cozy dinner. Restaurant and wine bar are in vaulted space next on the river in pedestrian zone of Bahnhofstrasse. The food is italian inspired, seasonal and fresh. Tables in the wine bar allow you literally to sit in a vaulted wine cellar. Best for smaller groups or... More

The Restaurant Opus is quite a nice little gem. On one side is a great restaurant, on the other a more casual place to enjoy a glass (or two) of great wine and some lighter fare. Great atmosphere right on the river. Walk around Old Town, do some shopping then stop in and enjoy the Restaurant Opus. A perfect day... More

Fantastic food, and an extensive wine list. Salad bar is more than fulfilling and service is at high level.

Dear derekkotara Thanks for your reply regarding our location. We are sorry, that you have left our place with such a negativ feeling. But unfortunately, writing about a subject like that on tripadvisor after leaving the restaurant doesn’t help – neither you not us. It would have been much more helpful, if you would have told us your concerns right... More

After being knocked back from several restaurants we had hoped to eat at because we had no booking (who knew it would be like this in the off season!) we finally secured a table at Opus - welcomed and quickly accommodated by a delightful waitress. What a lucky random chance. The food was delicious, service exceptional and atmosphere great. Thank... More

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation (not wise) but were accommodated in a timely and courteous fashion. The menu has a wide variety of choices - many healthy/vegetarian options, an extensive salad bar, etc. We chose more traditional options of chicken pot pie and mediterranean shrimp and were not disappointed- both were huge in both portion and presentation....

We came across this restaurant & liked the look of it. We did not have a reservation but they were extremely accommodating & found us a corner table on a busy night. We had an enjoyable meal in a lovely atmosphere. Great selection of wine. Reasonable priced.

We visited opus twice in our three days in Luzern. The first was just for a glass or two of wine and sat outside. The location is great. The staff was attentive and the the selection of wines by the glass was quite nice offering many types and regions from local Swiss to France. Italian and some new world. The... More

My husband and I just returned to our hotel after a delicious dinner at the Restaurant Opus. It was expensive but not as bad as many places in the area and our meals and wine were very good . When we got the check, however, we realized we were charged 13.80 francs for 2 bottles of mineral water when I... More

We ate here twice - midday snack outside and dinner inside. Staff were fine. Food was good. Wine list was good. Noise level and table closeness a little too much. Beware of tripping on stairs in back and also stairs to toilet - one guy took a bad fall while we were there. One waitress was a Good Samaritan -... More
