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.

Recently my friends an I took dinner at this nice traditional Swiss restaurant. As we were having the meal, the folklore show was began. Very amusing and interactive show, because the MC will asked volunteers from the audience to participate in their show, such as to blow the pipe horn, tradiotional Swiss dance, etc. My favourite dish was the cheese...

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

I was not impressed with the show or the food. I love cheese and fondue and really found it to be pretty poor quality. Wish i would have spent my money elsewhere...

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

We visited the Stadkeller with 4 American friends who were on a 2 day stop in Lucerne and had never been to Switzerland before..... we thought it would be a good way to show them what Switzerland is all about in a 'nutshell' and it proved to be a super fun way of experiencing the Alpine horn, accordion, cow bells,...

We attended a dinner show this week and were surprised by the generous trip advisor ratings. The food and service was average. We likewise were treated rudely when we first inquired. I think this set the tone. The redeeming part of the night was the music. Not top-notch, but entertaining nevertheless.

Hi Arizona-griswolds, first of all I would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us though we didn't match your expectations. I wish we would know which evening you attended the dinner show exactly so I could go and investigate what the case was as of course, no one should be ever treated rudely! Please take my apology!

The Stadtkeller is a good restaurant for both food and entertainment. The menu of choices available covers most Swiss types of cuisine from cheese/meat fondue to schnitzel, etc. Prices are above average - e.g. weinerschnitzel- 45.50 CHF. However, live music begins at 1930 for 30 minutes and a Swiss folk show begins at 2000 and runs well over an hour... More
