We came to enjoy something different, food was delicious, sweet atmosphere, the female server was lovely and as attentive as she could be, dealing with many orders.
The waiter, the male server, or the one who behaves like the owner was behaving peculiar.
We watched him take payment from the guests next to us and he tried not to return the females change and she quickly spoke up about it.
He then took our payment and did the same thing without asking if we wanted our change back.
This is very low class, greedy and leaves behind a sense of disenchantment. It is the guest who decides to leave a tip and how much.

Barbes is a small, cosy Moroccan restaurant in the new part of Lucerne. The evening that I visited I only saw locals catching up for a meal as it is away from the main touristy areas. They have tall chairs around the bar and then around 10 small tables by the side. The food is middle-eastern and predominantly Moroccan. I had the chicken tangine with cous-cous and it was good.

On our 3 day stay in Lucerne we stumbled upon this place by accident. Their lunch menues were absolutely delicious, the service super friendly and the entire vibe was really cool, urban and authentic. Highly recommendable.

We come here regularily - nice cosy small restaurant that serves good Moroccan food. The staff is very friendly and the service is fast. As they have a bar, one can also just come for a drink. Try the Morrocan white wine with the Mezze platter! As it only has a few tables, book in advance. Plus, bring cash as they don't accept any cards.

Met up with some old friends here for some dinner and good conversation. Ambience is great, food is great and the Moroccan wine is even better. A must do!
