Nice argentinian Restaurant with high quality steaks! It is a typical argentinian style restaurant with a very cozy atmosphere. They serve good wines, too. The meat is the best!

El Rincon offers one of the best selection of Argentinian cuts of meat in Lucerne. The steaks we ordered were very tender and cooked to perfection. A bit pricy but that's just generally when ordering meat in Switzerland..More

Small, clean and simple but offers great steaks. A casual atmosphere, good for friends or a fun date. Steaks are perfect, menu is limited.
