The restaurant, part of the Hotel Luzernerhof, is on a side street just a few blocs away from the main tourist traffic and from the lake. We sat outside, received good service and excellent meals, and hence went for a second time. On both occasions we were offered a small appetizer.

,My sister and I travelled here as a belated birthday gift for me and we have now just returned home from this cosy, friendly Brasserie not far from the Lake views. Staff so friendly but, Daniel the Portuguese, Assistant Head Waiter is a gem. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he makes you feel like someone very important.... More

Cute little restaurant on bottom floor of the Luzernhof Hotel. We sat at their outdoor tables trying to order drinks and see a menu. Older, rather brusque waitress just ignored us. After a 10 minute wait we went to a cafe on the river. Another couple was getting ready to sit at the table behind us so we warned them... More

Brasserie style restaurant just off the lake by the Old City. Friendly greeting and continued service from Daniel our waiter? Small appetiser on the house, lovely bottle of French Viognier and food hit the spot. Pizzas for the kids, veal Zurich-style for my wife and I had an entrecôte. We all had desserts, 2 strawberries and cream, 2 Creme brulees... More

Luzern has quite a few great and excellent restaurant, none of them a bargain. This one stands out in a few ways: - It's the only "Brasserie" style restaurant that feels like one (a couple more have it in their name, but not atmosphere -see my other reviews). - It's old style, solidly rooted in tradition (all that in a...

Waited over an hour for soup. Charged us for tap water. Owner was rude beyond belief. Too many other options to eat here.

We were lost and searching for a prebooked hotel. We called in for advice and were given perfect guidance. We returned and had an excellent meal served by friendly staff and owners ( who commented that 'it was raining cats and dogs',) the food was slightly old fashioned and the wine list had some really old vintages as well as...

We had a wonderful, relaxed meal. The food was fresh, tasty and presented in a beautiful manner. There was a good variety to choose from on the menu and a good selection of reasonably priced wines. The hostess and waiter visited our table throughout the dinner and were interesting, friendly and helpful. An excellent value and experience.
