The location if seated outside in particular is stunning. However... the menu appears now to be designed to maximise income rather than offer a choice. A mixture of two expansive tasting menus were the primary offering and it was just very overly complicated to steer...More

Without reservations we tried this place after spending the day up at Mr. Rigi. We were not dressed for fine dining, and asked about that with the host. He was delightfully welcoming and completely dismissed our concerns about our attire. Sat outside at a table...More

This was a pleasant experience. Sitting by the river, great weather, lovely view of lovely Lucerne, being well treated and eating well. Had the starter selection, petite mouthfuls, but all were tasty. Then shared a grilled half lobster, which despite making the journey from Canada,...More

Description
In Balances restaurant, Luzern, head chef Andy Fluri creates culinary masterpieces with great success. This master chef, who has been awarded 14 points by the prestigious Gault-Millau guide, takes his guests on a flight of fancy for the taste buds, with delicacies such: as cream of parmesan soup with basil Espuma and beef fillet steak carpaccio; braised veal cheeks in a truffle jus, served with a potato and onion mash and savoy bacon; or dumplings filled with chocolate and nuts, accompanied by apple mousse with sour cream and banana ice cream. All meals are prepared with only market fresh produce and everything is produced according to the season. Guests are welcomed with historic flair, which is also in keeping with modern design and makes for a stylish establishment decorated in warm, natural tones. This extraordinary ambience is even more enhanced by the terrace, which looks directly on to the Reuss, which sets the mood not only for the romantics, but for all diners, as there is a sense of being on the Venecian Grand Canal.
