We had some simple apps here and beverages. They do have outdoor seating so that was nice, but the best part was when the city grew dark and you had perfect views of the churches and other landmarks. Snacks were nice, good bar, but the views are why you come here.

Stumbled across this amazing bar and restaurant. I was disappointed to see not many Trip Advisor readers have discovered this place and some reviews are for a name sake in Zurich.
A restaurant has been operating in this building for 600 years. Downstairs is a bar with tapas. Very busy on a Wednesday night with locals. Had a good vibe. Upstairs is an amazing little restaurant. The menu is diverse with a lot of dishes having a choice of small or large plate. The duck liver pate was excellent as was the Jeff and the sea bass. There were also a number of vegetarian choices. A good wine list and amazingly helpful staff and chef made for a memorable night in Lucerne.

Wasn't super impressed with deserts although coffee were good.
The high tables are in the shade which is perfect to sit outside in scorching Summer but the rest of the year around the more crowded terrace is the better option. Unfortunately the apple cake or the raspberry tart were more on a par with airline food in my book.

Stumbled accross this place by accident and decided to stay after receiving a very warm welcome. We went for the fondue which was amazing and personalised to our taste. Staff go above and beyond. Good atmosphere.

We went to have a little snacks. Had a cup of cappuccino and some cakes. Cappuccino was very good. The views from the restaurant were one of the best.
