We went looking for a traditional Swiss cheese fondue and the Pfistern came highly recommended. Without a booking we couldn't get a balcony table, but we were still happy with our table next to the water. Our cheese fondue was very nice. The service was great, the location and ambience more than we could have asked for.

Sometimes you are fishing for advice from the wait staff and other times, a good wait person will talk you out of something. I wanted guidance and twice got bad advice. The first time was from our hotel, that recommended Pfistern. We were concerned when we checked in on Good Friday and were leaving Easter Monday that it would be... More

We are sorry that you didn’t like our Fondue – our place is very famous for Swiss Fondue as we serve 100 different varieties. As you have noticed, every... More

Food was average quality for the price they charge. The service was also very poor and didn't warrant the price that was charged. It felt more like a cheap fast food restaurant than a quality restaurant selling Swiss cuisine. Overall a bill for 2 people with 2 mains, a bottle of wine and one dessert was 123CHF and seemed very... More

We went there for Christmas, the atmosphere is cheese... I mean, it smells like feet/cheese completely (of course is because they serve cheese... or feet?) so you need to decide whether go for the saloon or the terrace, and the third floor is possible as well (no smell at all). The service was absolutely fantastic, the waiter was super friendly... More

To have a typical cheese fondue al fresco, looking at the lake and the main sights of Lucerne is something to remember. The place may be meant for tourists but We enjoyed our meal and the service was good.

Wanted to try authentic Swiss Raclette/Fondue in Luzern. Searched in TripAdvisor and came across this restaurant. Upon stepping into the restaurant, there were there were 2 staff (bartender & waitress) who spotted us but decided to continue what they were doing, i.e. ignoring us. Granted that it was dinner time, we walked further to the middle of the restaurant, expecting... More

It was still on the chilly side but we wanted the view and sat on the patio. I had the fondue and my husband had a Veal special and we both enjoyed our meal. The Waitress was friendly and fun, she added to the experience. It was pricey, but it is a tourist town and the location was perfect, it... More

I visited it Friday evening around 21.30 and was happy that I was allowed to occupy the table for 4 people on a terrace. Single visitors also like nice views!:-) I've ordered wine and fondue. I must say that bread for fondue was tasteless but they also serve boiled potato for free for the fondue (not typical) so I've asked... More
