About
Culinary tradition and modernity meet perfect balance in Sens : The menu offers typical regional dishes as well as modern and exotic creations for every taste. And if you still want to be closer to the lake, eating on the beautiful terrace or small island just above the water. Enjoy from here the beautiful view and the most beautiful sun gear on Lake Lucerne! The perfect end to an unforgettable evening guarantees our cozy lounge Sens. A fine dinner drink, a glass of wine or a fruity cocktail and you'll find yourself at least now in absolute holiday mood again, which could not be better.
