Just how good should the restaurant be?
(good = expensive).
I know the chef (Ralph Thomas) who has just taken over the restaurant Bam Bou near Luzern main station.
His restaurant in Dallenwill was always a "must visit" whenever I was near Luzern.
He is cooking French, not fusuion, at Bam Bou by Thomas. Disregard any reviews prior to March 1, 2017.
Instead, look for Restaurant Kreuz in Dallenwil, where he cooked for many years.
The Palace Hotel usually has the best kitchen in Luzern. If you go in the evening, you'll be more comfortable if you dress up a bit. The outdoor dining on the terrace is probably not quite so concerned about how you dress.
For years, my choice for moderate prices and decent food was the Rathaus Brauerei beside the river ( #2 Unter den Egg) , near the old Rathaus. In German, Rathaus means council house or city hall.
It changed hands over the winter, and I wont be able to check it out until May. Great location if you can eat outdoors. Inside has nice atmosphere.
If they are full. restaurant La Barca, close by, is the kitchen from the Hotel Schiff ( now closed.) They still have a good reputation; I have not tried them yet, since the hotel portion closed. They were excellent in the hotel. Reasonable prices by Luzern standards.
If you want more information. I'll ask a friend who lives in Sachselnm and eats in Luzern frequently. He tend to avoid the expensive places.
