Perfect view, great food, nice selection of desserts. Was a perfect Sunday afternoon lunch. Everyone enjoyed lunch which ranged from simple fresh mozzarella , basil and tomato sandwich on perfect baguette to regional fresh sausages with honey mustard and pretzel bread. Nice dessert selection of cakes and the apple strudel and gelatos. Also good wine selection of Swiss wines and fresh teas.

This was the dining highlight of our extended trip to Europe. The outside seating was excellent and our waitress was charming and helpful. Best of all was the food and wine. Each dish was memorable--not something easy to achieve for us. Our party of three highly endorses Restaurant 1871.

Nice prix fix menu. Cooking is continental but more on the German side. Wait between courses seemed long so for a business dinner it gives you time to talk. Food was good but not outstanding.

I have visited a previous business of Mr Widmer in Lucerne and was happy to find out that he has stayed true to his philosophy in these new halls of the Grand National Hotel.
The food was well presented with a lot of attention to detail. Good quality glassware and crockery are two examples. Great flavours technically well made without too many unnecessary frills. One dish was salty, but those things happen in the best kitchens.
The wine list is relatively short, but the selection is excellent and the prices are good. We have great Verdejo from Rueda and a very modern top quality Dido, a red from Montsant.
I really appreciated the selection of cheeses that I had for desert.
