Do not walk in into this restaurant/bar of the Hotel Cascada without reservations. It gets really full!

If you don't mind waiting, this is a great place to cool down your heels after a walk in Lucerne. A good 10-12 minutes walk from the Old Town, this restaurant bar specialises in Spanish tapas. Their tapas buffet has two choice: small or large. This means either a small plate or a big plate to stuff all your tapas in. If you are used to Spanish tapas, however, you will be disappointed at the small number of choices.

Otherwise, the staff are friendly and food is okay.

We booked a table which is recommended as it was a busy restaurant. The menu is of Spanish origin. Plenty of choice of Tapas to start. A nice selection of main meals to choose from. The Pincho de carne al flambeado brandy con patatas salteadas was very tasty and a feast for the eyes when it is flambéed at the table. We were too full for desserts but there was a good selection. The staff were all very polite and friendly. Well worth a visit if you're in lucerne

My wife and I went to Bolero to celebrate our anniversary whilst on a European holiday. We emailed in advance to make a booking, to which they replied very promptly and locked us in; it was a great first impression!

First off, don't be scared of the prices - they are standard for any restaurant in Lucerne - EVERYTHING is expensive in Switzerland, but Bolero is DEFINITELY great value for money; the food was impeccable and the service was faultless.

We shared a small tapas plate to start with so that we could have a taster of everything on offer. Our favourite parts of the tapas bar included the mozzarella wrap, the frittata (which they called "tortilla") and the mini mushroom caps.

For mains I had the prawn fajita and my wife had the chicken fajita. They were really tasty and the portion size was perfect. We go out for Mexican quite a lot in Sydney, which we love, and the fajita setup was quite similar. The components of the fajitas at Bolero were cheese, lettuce, spicy salsa and guacamole, and we also asked for some chilli sauce on the side (as they don’t serve jalapenos as part of the setup).

Our waitress was very attentive, and the restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere. I’d say it’s great for couples, but I’m sure small groups would suit too.

Bolero is definitely recommended. Next time we come to Lucerne, we will certainly be eating at Bolero again.

One of the best meals ever. The calf meat is excellent. The environment is very nice. The only problem was a relatively long waiting time. Anyhow, the preparation of good dishes deserves it.
