I was visiting my sister in Luzern during the Carnaval time in Switzerland and she recommended me to dine at the Opus restaurant. What an excellent choice! My appetizer, the antipasti buffet definitely met my expectations - ingredients were fresh and tasty. The burger was delicious, meat well-made and of high quality. In addition, the selection of salads to choose... More

My fiance and I were in Lucern for a few nights on our way to Germany. We have been in Europe traveling low season on a very generous budget. That being said, I felt that this dinner, where we SPLIT THE APPITIZER AND THE MAIN MEAL, and some wine, the final bill was $163.00 (FR). OMG, really? Friendly staff, I... More

Dear Connie B Thanks a lot for your feedback regarding your visit at our place. We do understand, that – compared to your country – the price for a dinner seems to be expensive. We’ve already spoken with you about the reasons for it during your stay. We know, that live is much more expensive in Switzerland, compared to other... More

While staying at the Hotel Wilden Mann we stumbled across this place,splendid greeting and although the seating is a little cramped the atmosphere makes up for that. All this and at peak Christmas period when in the UK you would have to book way in advance. Nice.

Salads were very fresh, with a nice combination of veggies. Wife had falafel. This was very subtly herbed with a good bit bit of veggies accompying it, pita and tahini. Simple yet surprisingly good. I had pork loin wrapped in bacon: perfectly cooked, moist but not oily. It was served with flash fried mashed potatoes (couldn't figure the secret spice--so... More

Went looking for a hearty meal and certainly found it in this restaurant. Served the largest portion of chicken pie I've ever seen! None of it went to waste it was that good. Rich gravy and delightfully light pastry combining wonderfully. Good range of wines available by the glass. Staff very help in translating the menus.

This is the place if you are looking for an easy lunch or cozy dinner. Restaurant and wine bar are in vaulted space next on the river in pedestrian zone of Bahnhofstrasse. The food is italian inspired, seasonal and fresh. Tables in the wine bar allow you literally to sit in a vaulted wine cellar. Best for smaller groups or... More

The Restaurant Opus is quite a nice little gem. On one side is a great restaurant, on the other a more casual place to enjoy a glass (or two) of great wine and some lighter fare. Great atmosphere right on the river. Walk around Old Town, do some shopping then stop in and enjoy the Restaurant Opus. A perfect day... More

Fantastic food, and an extensive wine list. Salad bar is more than fulfilling and service is at high level.

Dear derekkotara Thanks for your reply regarding our location. We are sorry, that you have left our place with such a negativ feeling. But unfortunately, writing about a subject like that on tripadvisor after leaving the restaurant doesn’t help – neither you not us.
