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

Good food, fair ambiance, poor service, and high prices! Really disappointed in what was supposed to be a highly rated restaurant.

This restaurant is overpriced and the young waiter was extremely unfriendly and pompous. We arrived at around 10:30PM and were informed that we could only order from the small menu. Everything was expensive, but that has to do with the swiss exchange rate. We were a party of 7 and although there were numerous free seats available there were none... More

Dear fiddleman_12 Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry, that you have left our place with such a bad feeling by naming our place expensive and unfriendly.

Went for dinner on a rainy night, so had to sit inside. Good wine by glass selection, but thought the amount poured was small for the price. Antipasti had large selection, but felt quality was just average. Would not recommend.
