The restaurant is located next to the River reuss with a beautiful view of the old town and the water tower. You can book a table inside or outside. The meals are mediterranean with added fusion. Fresh and tasty dishes with a good wine selection. Prices are a little hugh but its based to the location next to the river.

Food was decent, but very expensive by North American, and even European standards. What stood out about this restaurant was our rather rude waitress, who treated us as total second class customers, I believe because we spoke English. Even though she spoke decent English, I noticed that she was much more attentive to the German speakers. There was one young lady there who was very friendly and attentive, but unfortunately, the poor service by our waitress left a strong impression.

A very busy evening for Opus saw us apologetically placed around the corner in possibly the most relaxing spot in Lucerne. I had a signature Hugo spritz variation that included lemon sorbet. This was the prequel to a sav blanc and a merlot for my guy. A delightful waiter and a cool breeze finished the evening.

How can you get a basic Burger wrong ?

Well the restaurant Opus has that defined by using frozen produce and then selling it or advertising it as fresh or prime.

We searched Opus using trip advisor and the restaurant has a TripAdvisor warning that it's rating was under investigation.

Let's stay safe and order a 30 CHF " Prime Swiss Beer Gourmet Burger " The burger was delivered as hard as a rock and clearly they are frozen mince patties cooked to try and come across as fresh or prime.

Totally not acceptable at that price to use frozen products don't use any words like prime in your menu. Burger King deliver a better product and taste.

Once addressing this with the manger he went to check having no idea what comes out of the kitchen. The reply was it's normal which could be the case in this tourist trap in Lucerne.

Being Swiss it's embarrassing that we have managers like this and deliver food at this price point to the public and call it prime.

Unfortunately this is a tourist trap the Staff recommended the burgers as a specialty of the restaurant.

The menu is so disjointed from Oysters to Falafel Burgers try getting really good at the basics and drop the frozen produce.

Want a burger give this place a big miss !!

This is a lovely restaurant right on the River Reuss. We had not booked for dinner, but were found a table even though the restaurant was fairly busy. The menu is quite extensive and features a lot of fish dishes the wine list long and interesting.
Service was excellent and well paced... the bill modest - there was nothing to dislike
The views of Lucerne old town and the river are lovely as the sun sets... well worth a visit.
