We were booked in as a cruise group for dinner and entertainment. Not disappointed at all. Plenty of audience participation. The food was excellent - the fondue and snitzel to die for. Wine and beer good too. Yummy - best I've had for a while. Entertainment great. All in all it was a very amazing and enjoyable evening. If you... More

It was a fun dinner show with lots of audience participation. If you want to try traditional fondues this is the place. The schnitzel was excellent. The show was fun and quirky providing a sample of various traditional music.

We had enjoyed Restaurant Fritschi next door and thought we'd try this place for lunch too. We saw advertisements for them in several places as well. The restaurant was packed with a large tour group of high school/college students from Australia. They were so raucous even the waitress seemed harried by their presence. My pork chops arrived slightly burned and... More

Hi opsdirector 2, we apologize we didn't match with your expectations about our restaurant. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the food - and especially not the chocolate fondue. We never had any issues with it. If you ever are back in Lucerne we hope you come visit us again, so we can do better! Merry Christmas! More

We dined here as part of an Insight "Highlights of Europe" tour. Our dinner was fantastic, the beer flowed easily and the entertainment highlighting Swiss culture and music was raucous and great fun. The fondue was especially delicious. We highly recommend.

The food here was actually very good as well as the live entertainment. Be prepared to feel like a tourist, but its worth it to see some traditional swiss food/entertainment.

We walked in at lunch time hoping to get a table for dinner that night and luckily they had space for us. We chose from the banquet menu which included fondue, a small salad, main and dessert. The main of vegetarian curry was not really to my taste but my partner thoroughly enjoyed his beef fondue. The show is entertaining... More

we tasted the menu D , cheese fondue with the chicken & desert. For asian and not favor wine person, we think less wine will be good, the original cheese too bitter with the bread. the desert too sweet on the cover of the ice cream but smooth. The chocolate fondue is good but the fruit not to fresh....

Hi Petty L, thank you for your review. The cheese fondue itself is made with wine so yes this maybe depends a bit on everyone's own favour. Nevertheless we hope you enjoyed the show and wish you a good day. Best regards More
