Cozy dining inside on a cold winter's night; service from greeting to wine to food to getting the bill paid timely...fantastic! I was seated by a young man who asked if I wanted a drink - and he patiently let me taste test two wines before I decided. My waitress, a young lady who spoke excellent English, helped steer me to the right food and helped keep me from over ordering! Again - fantastic. Well worth a visit - prices in line with the rest of Lucerne.

Our reservation was for five, but the staff offered us a table for four, with rickety seating like you might find at a middle school event. They begrudgingly squeezed in another chair, but only after we asked twice. The food was decent, service was slow, but of course being right on the water is really the point of eating here.

We dined here last night in the outdoor area near the water. The location and decor is lovely. Unfortunately, that is the only positives.

The menu is limited to fondues and is very expensive. It is also very confusing to read, after we fnally got it worked out, guests at the table nearby asked us to clarify how it works. (ie - you need to order fondue for at least 2 people, prices given are per serve. Each fondue pot is at least $65 CHF (2 people) and is only served with bread and potatoes. The three savoury fondues we had were average tasting.

Service was patchy and cursory. We had to aske several times for various things. (wine etc). I did however appreiate the blankets and heat bags that were refreshed during our dinner.

Highlight of dining was the chocolate fondue. We had to order double the amount of fruit to fill us up, as most of our group only ate a small amount of the very average savoury fondues.

Would not recommend this place unless you only intend to order a chocolate fondue for deserts.

Looking for a typical Swiss cheese fondue ?
This is the place you need to go to.
They offer the classical fondue as well as some more exotic ones like Haloween (with pumpkin seeds), ...
You can eat there outside even in cold winter time (take warm clothes though and, most important, very warm shoes !)

We stopped here because we wanted to try fondue in Switzerland and it was on the menu. This restaurant was in a great location right on the water. We ordered the cheese fondue as our main meal and had no problem with this (despite other reports). The cheese fondue was good however the only accompaniment was bread... Our waitress was quite nice. Apparently there are four levels to this restaurant with different levels of service, food, etc.on each. We sat on the bottom floor near the water.
