Great location right at the lake with an incredible view. Very enjoyable to sit outside on a hot summer day. The service was fast and our server friendly.

Unfortunately the two dinner meals (curry and rösti) we had were very simply made and nothing special at all. I guess you pay the premium prices not for the good food but the location.

Great decor and character.

Had company Christmas Dinner here.

Food was OK, but lacked a Wow factor. Perhaps they were just a bit too busy that evening.

After walking every street to end our Swiss-trip with a Fondue on our last night, we gave in to the tourist trap and went for a crowded, by the water restaurant with great views of old bridge.

We ordered the fondue like most tables, but having eaten it so many times including making it myself, this was the most disappointing one I had. Possibly using the cheaper mix of cheese and no wine in it.

Would not recommended for a big meal but ok for a snack, great place for a drink

This is a good restaurant in the old city, with a lovely area outside where kids can run free. Food is excellent, and it changes with seasonality. A good solid find.

I was with a group of four friends touring Switzerland in September (2017) and we were searching for a lunch spot while visiting Luzern. It was a Saturday, market day. That in and of itself is something to see. Stalls of beautiful flowers, vegetable, fruits, cheeses and baked goods. Stimulus for all the senses!

We decided on Schiff for lunch - the décor is lovely and we were seated in a quiet alcove at the back of the restaurant.

I had the beef broth (simple, flavourful and delicious) and the spinach salad (spectacular, especially the fried cheese).
