The Marlin specializes in seafood. The fresh seafood is presented to you so you can choose your food before it is prepared. We had fish incased in salt. Once done it was quite a show getting the fish out. It was excellent. The service was very good, also.

We decided to try this restaurant when it was recommended by our hotel concierge for a great seafood dinner. We were not disappointed. A short stroll from the Hotel Schweizerhof Lucerne, we arrived on a Sunday night with only 4 other tables filled. It’s lakeside location made us wish we had visited in Summer rather than fall as we were sure the terrace dining would enhance the experience.

We were told it was only fish but did notice an option for “no surf- just turf“. My husband had the trout “Lucerne-style” and described it as somewhat bland but enjoyed it. My perch was absolutely amazing. The friendly service, quiet location and the views are what made this restaurant so memorable and worthy of a recommendation.

This restaurant is all about quality and service.
Dover sole is a must simply excellent. The service is second to none. The staff is wonderful. A great place to spend an evening.
Expensive but well worth the price. A must if you are in Lucerne. Located at the hotel Palace Luzern.

We had a wonderful meal at Marlin. Outside seating just steps from the lake with the mountains in the distance only added to ambiance (we were very lucky with the weather also). We both had fish dishes (!) and were quite different in both preparation and presentation and both delicious. The service was attentive ,helpful and pleasant.

The staff was disappointingly unattentive. E.g. they forgot to bring a spoon to the soup.
Although we had a reservation at 7:30 they already ran out of most fish. Other options were very small portions (compared to a fish).
Absolutely not worth the money.
