Description: BB stands for Bettys & Bistro for the mix of bistro and bar, as well as the hot spot at Krienser events. A relatively popular origin story of the term Bistro is that it is the Russian word for "quick" быстро (bystro) derives. In Betty's Bistro Austrian hospitality, German diligence and Swiss precision are combined. The Bistro is a small restaurant that opened in 2012. In summer, the beautiful terrace with chestnut trees invites you to linger. Man drinking here wine, beer, coffee, cappuccino or other drinks enjoyment and enjoys a snack if from the small menu. On weekends from the small bistro bar which has baffled with spontaneous parties, already many national and international guests. At events like the legendary Santa Claus parade (always December 8) or the Krienser carnival, and football events Bettys Bistro is the hotspot in Kriens. We are looking forward to your visit

“Great Location, Great Service”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Aiming to go up Mount Pilatus, the weather was horrible, but we took a chance and took a bus to the base of the mountain. As it was raining, the most convenient place to step into for us was Betty's Bistro.

It was immediately a favourite as we walked in and was enthusiastically greeted by the bartender who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. As basic as the pizza was, it was extremely tasty and well worth for two people sharing.

The bartender also introduced us to a coffee pilatus which was a warm kick that was needed that helped us get up the mountain.

Well worth a look

“Best service”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Best reception I've received at any place, as we stopped by for a drink and a quick meal before heading up Mt. Pilatus. Definitely provided a great start for our day and added that extra drive. Was eager to stay longer but we had a mountain to climb!

“Really nice bistro”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Betty's Bistro is great to chill out, maybe after a trip to mount Pilatus before you take back the bus to Lucerne? It has really good coffee and everyone is very friendly. There are enough seats outside and even if you get a little hunger you have really yummy bistro food that will make you happy.
