When you are getting hangry and don’t want to spend 100 dollars on lunch.. this is a decent choice. Fish and chips and the burger are good options.

Lots of seating inside - limited outside. Dark wood decor. No seating at the bar, but easy to get your beer and bring it to your table. Great appetizers and beer. Great for a group of people because there is plenty of seating.

Very accommodating on arrival, lovely room. Was a single room with a wonderful balcony overlooking the river in Lucerne but with solid doors keeping out any noise. Very central. Would certainly stay again.More
