If you want Swiss food this is the place. Wiener schnitzel cooked table side. Best I ever had. Our server was so good handling a table of six. Must see in the restaurant. It’s like a museum. Friend loved her pasta and lobster. So glad we experienced this

I think that The Old Swiss House might be viewed as a bit too touristy for many. But from where I sit, it is a must. The location is center city Old Town. The exterior is perfect German/Swiss charming architecture. The interior is just as charming with a cluttered, homey feel of carved woods crystal and soft lighting. Yes we both ordered the Wiener Schnitzel, prepared at our table and it was the best I've ever had (He used close to a pound of butter). One day I'm going to develop a nice soft sauce just for this dish. I asked the General Manager a question about the history and he gave me the grand tour! Nice touch! The desserts were delicious and the coffee robust. Great night out.

Prepared at the table: a succulent escalope de veau! Amazingly tasty. We finished with another dish that is prepared at the table: crepes suzette. Very very good. We didn't count calories that evening but had a wonderful dinner in a great ambiance.

I think is difficult to find a proper Swiss restaurant in Lucern, so if you are looking for that, The Old Swiss House is the right place. Excellent food, but perfect ambience and great staff (the owener attends by herself most of the guests) as well. Price is worth to pay.

PS. Previous reservations is a must, very difficult to find table if you just go there.

A fine dining restaurant which specializes in Swiss delicacies. The place has an old world charm about it right from the ambiance, tableware, cutlery to the serving ladies wearing their pretty dirndls. A must try restaurant in Lucerne.
