“Excellent Service and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

My wife & I came here to eat a vegetarian lunch based on the recommendation from the denniscallan youtube clip of lucerne tour. It took us while to find the entrance which is from the garden side (Dreilindenstrasse street) We entered through the garden and sat inside close to the open kitchen. It was a wonderful experience to see the food being prepared, the service was polite and professional, the food tasted excellent(we ordered a business lunch deal), the price was very affordable, the place was clean and there was an atmosphere of freshness. We will certainly return to this restaurant in our future visits to Lucerne.

“The atmosphere was better than the food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

Our food was very good and well presented but the atmosphere was much better. The food won't blow you away with flavor but it is still worth it. The staff was friendly and spoke great English. The menu was expensive but I guess everything is pricey in Switzerland!

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2010

We chose Hofgarten based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is very well presented with tables both inside and outside in the garden. The kitchen is also visible from a window based outside on the street.

Being vegetarian I found the choices available interesting although not as many options as I was expecting. I chose a ravioli dish and my wife chose a thai curry dish.

The meals could not be faulted for quality of ingredients and execution of cooking. However being critical I must say that both dishes lacked that defining taste of Italy and Thailand.

Overall the service was impeccable, good food and good value (for Switzerland).

“For the franc, the best meal”

Excellent meal and excellent service. Hate high dollar meals. The meal was reasonable and excellent quality. The recommended wine was one of the best I have had.

“Great but not vegetarian anymore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2009

Just wanted to let everyone know that while they still offer vegetarian meals, the Hofgarten is no longer vegetarian only. Still delicious and nice atmosphere - esp in nice weather sitting outside.
