This is supposed to be the oldest family run restaurant in Lucerne and I was brought here by a relative that lived near the restaurant. I had high expectations for this restaurant and I have to say it was not as good as I expected....More

I went there on Thursday evening (16.02.2027) at 19:10 and was ignored by the waitresses even though I stood in front of them for a while and they were just talking to each other. When I asked for a table for 2 people, a waitress...More
