This is a very small and cosy restaurant with a view over Lake Lucerne - I could not imagine a more romantic place. Food was great, though not excellent, but the atmosphere really made up for any shortcomings.

We ate at this restaurant which is one of the restaurants of the Vitznauerhof where we stayed. I can only recommend this restaurant for its exquisite fish cuisine and its outstanding location. We were lucky to have the opportunity of al fresco dining on the little isle right on the lake. We chose the set menu consisting of delicacies like... More

We stayed at the hotel, and didn't know about Sens until our last day -- it is that well hidden from the rest of the hotel/ world, and the hotel has another lovely restaurant on the lakefront that you can't miss. Thankfully, we discovered this restaurant on our last evening. The setting is very special. The food very creative and... More

We stayed at the Park and walked over to the Hotel Vitznauerfhof, home of Sens restaurant. The restaurant is actually a free-standing building away from the property (the hotel features another restaurant as well). Sens is one of those restaurants that you wonder why it is in Vitznau since it is very pricey and the chef is very creative (when... More

Simple, trendy, delicately arranged dishes that were both delicious and refined. We had the yellow fin tuna, veal with capers, anchovies and lemon to start and the roasted char with pickled fennel, carrot-ginger mouse and quinoa. It was delightful. Such a beautiful setting as well.

I booked a table at Sens restaurant on the "Island" which is located directly on the lake with only 4 tables. With such a location, the initial impression is fantastic, however, what followed in terms of service and Cuisine was absolutely exceptional!!!

Sens is located in a separate, private, small building adjacent to the Hotel Vitznauerhof. Ours was one of just 10 or so tables on a deck right on Lake Lucerne, offering a spectacular sunset at dinner. The quality of the experience was excellent, and nearly on par with Prisma (one star Michelin) in another local hotel. This restaurant is an... More

Dining here is a real treat. The food is outstanding - apart from some heavy-on-the-oil Hors d'oeuvres, the rest of my food was one Michelin star quality, and when combined with the view, it tasted even more divine. Depending on what you are looking for, I found the service a little pretentious - especially at the end of the meal... More
