Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a new hidden gem in Franklin NC. Dinner on a Friday night was probably the most authentic mex meal ever. Fabulous presentation and service. Kudos to George for bringing this to us!

We‘ve been to restaurant Pikante a few times and always enjoy it. I like the decor, which makes you feel like you’re in Peru. In terms of food, I always enjoy a ceviche, which is delicious and so refreshing. And as a main dish, I...normally choose the Limo Saltado. Lastly, I love the Pisco Sour. It goes well with the meal, too. Last time we were there, Chef Emilio came out to explain us the dishes and ingredients. That’s a really nice touch to have this personal attention. We’ll definitely be back.More

My husband celebrated my birthday at Pikante. We had reserved ahead and were warmly greeted. For me, dinner at Pikante was the culinary highlight of our two-week visit to Switzerland. The food was incredibly fresh, authentic and delicious. The service was excellent and genuinely welcoming....To start, my husband and shared the Ceviche Power con Mariscos--it was PERFECT. As entrees, I enjoyed the Pescado y Mariscos a lo Macho, which was beautifully presented and delicious, and served with two sauces--a (very) spicy red pepper sauce and chimichurri. My husband enjoyed a special of the day, which was a hearty bone beef spare ribs, which was perfectly prepared. For my birthday, the lights were turned out and the staff graciously sang Happy Birthday and presented a melt-in-your mouth two-dessert sampling of the Fondant de Chocolate and Postre Inspiracion, with a festive "sparkler" firework! The owner's wife and everyone else were so gracious and kind. Chef Emilio is truly gifted and Lucerne is fortunate to have such an authentically fresh and delicious restaurant!More

Based largely off of Trip Advisor reviews, when we needed a break from heavier traditional Swiss food, my husband and I tried Pikante. It was fantastic! The setting was inviting and lively; we ate in the outdoor garden. Our waitress and the hostess were friendly...and gave good recommendations. We both had tasty mocktails to start (passion fruit and mango) as well as grilled octopus. He had the teriyaki beef wok with vegetables, and I had the coriander short rib special. We also shared the chocolate “muffin” dessert, which was like lava cake. Every course was equally delicious and interesting. I did not want to knock down the overall score, but it is worth mentioning that our waitress basically ghosted us once the restaurant got busier, and we had to wait way too long for our dessert order and the bill. But, hopefully, they hire more staff.More

We visited Lucerne for the 1st time and wanted to ensure we used our 2 days wisely. Having enjoyed one of the best meals in our lives at a Peruvian restaurant while at a Mexican resort we thought we would try Picante. The reviews were...great and so we booked a table. We were greeted warmly and brought to our table. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Emilio came to our table and also visited most tables we could see. We let him know we were 2 Canadians visiting Lucerne for the 1st time and talked about the amazing meal we had at Lima Limon in Maroma. Turns out he was in Maya Riviera for 15 years before coming to Switzerland and knew of the restaurant. Small world. So now we can say that Picante served us the BEST dinner of our lives. Thanks Emilio for the wonderful experience and memories.More

My husband and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the good service we received. We were welcomed by the manager/owner of the restaurant and serviced along with her staff. The menu is exquisite. The cheviche option was of course a must along with the desserts....The Peruvian culture is clearly influenced in the menu with great distinction and pride.More

From the time we made our reservation, we were treated with respect and kindness. The owner of the restaurant welcomed us, and for the duration of our experience, it was splendid. We definitely recommend the yuca and chicken as appetizers and the cheviche power option...as an excellent entree. For desert, we had the Fondant in chocolate with Lucuma. We felt very comfortable and we enjoyed the cuisine. Hasta pronto.More

We had a fantastic time at this restaurant! The entire team, including Chef Emilio and his wife Sandra ensured that our menu was catered to our tastes, despite being a group of 20 with multiple requirements. They looked after us really well, and made us...feel at home. Would definitely recommend if you're visiting Luzern, and want to try some Peruvian food with a twist. P.S. - The pisco sour was phenomenal! Must try if you visit.More
