It is a motel restaurant. I went there for dinner and chose to sit outside coz it was too warm inside the restaurant. I felt a bite being ignore by the staff sitting outside, maybe its too busy at that time. The food is good, but a bite cold when they came to our table. The overall dining was good, but get a sit inside the restaurant.

We decided to take my mother-in-law here while she visited us in Switzerland from Germany. We were looking for a place that was a little more "fancy" than a typical Italian restaurant, both in terms of food and atmosphere. This place met our expectations.

ATMOSPHERE: It was quiet and relaxing with candlelit tables. We could easily talk to each other without being disturbed by loud conversations at neighboring tables.

FOOD: As a starter, we ordered the 3-jar "Wildes Trio", plus another "Zwei Komponenten" to share amongst the three of us and it was a good portion. Their system of serving starters and desserts in these jars is something they are known for. All 5 starters tasted great, but we all had different favorites. They have a good variety of main courses and the portions were good. I would recommend trying the seasonal Wild (deer) specials if you are there during the season (autumn).

SERVICE: Exceptional! Although my husband and I live in Switzerland now, I originally come from a service-oriented country and the service by the entire staff was wonderful. It made the evening more enjoyable.

VALUE: Although this restaurant is a little more expensive than other restaurants in Luzern, for the quality of food, atmosphere, and service, I feel like the value is great. I think we spent about 200 CHF for the three of us, which is not that bad compared to the general restaurant prices in Switzerland. My husband and I agree that it was of great value for the entire "package", though my mother-in-law (coming from Germany) was rather shocked :-)

The restaurant accepts reservations and I would recommend making them as it tends to get full. You can make a reservation for lunch until 13:30 and then dinner begins at 18:00.

Lieber Gast

Wow, vielen Dank für Ihr detailliertes Feedback. Wir haben uns riesig gefreut!

Die Schweiz ist tatsächlich ein hochpreisiges Land. Umso mehr freuen wir uns, wenn Preis-/ Leistung in Ihren Augen stimmte. Mit wunderbaren Produkten aus der Region garantieren wir eine hohe Qualität.

Hoffentlich hat sich auch Ihre Schwiegermutter mittlerweile vom "Schock" erholt. : ) Liebe Grüsse auch an sie!

Wir würden uns freuen, Sie bald wieder im STERN Luzern begrüssen zu dürfen und wünschen Ihnen einen farbenfrohen November!

Frische Grüsse
Ihr STERN-Team

My goodness, I hadn't realised I booked for a hotel stay with a 5-star restaurant!

We had our anniversary meal here. We heard the food is very good, one of the best for its prices and it is! Husband had game of the day which was roast deer with cranberry and Swiss dumplings (more like crispy stuff around the meat). I had pan-fried fish from Lake Lucerne. It was served with baked potatoes and warm spinach. This was SO GOOD and the prices are slightly more affordable than other restaurants. I also ordered a pumpkin soup which was phenomenal in my humble opinion. We did good and paid about CHF110 for these. I believe USD and CHF rates are almost similar so it really isn't a bad deal. The breakfast at this hotel was pretty good, inclusive in the hotel rate, and the servers were all very friendly and charming.

Food was outstanding. Atmosphere cozy. Only complaint was that it was extremely warm inside the restaurant. So warm, we were anxious to leave w/o ordering the dessert we heard was so good. Regardless, this restaurant is highly recommended if you are looking for great food in old town that is not touristy.
