Had dinner there and I ordered a sliced veal in wine sauce with noodles (pasta), turned out to be very delicious! Hubby ordered sausage with rostti and that was average. Service was very good there, waitresses very friendly. Restaurant also offers free wifi.

We stopped to have a few beers by the river and decided to stay for dinner. The beer was cold, the scenery was stunning, the food was ok. A nice little afternoon session.

Nice place by the river. Cuisine is fine but nothing to make it memorable. The service is good and you can try Swiss dishes.

I visited Taube for dinner with a group of 10 after an all-day business presentation, and we were all impressed with the inviting interior, authentic Luzerner menu and friendly waitstaff. From salads to entrees to gigantic desserts, everyone's meal looked and smelled wonderful. I had...More
