Our dinner at Spices was one of the most memorable experiences at Burgenstock. During the day, Spices offers a huge breakfast spread offering many international options. At night, it's the most breathtaking view! You can catch the sunset from the terrace or just from your dining table...either way, you can't be the views!!

The restaurant offers Chinese, Thai, Indian and Japanese cuisine...so there's something for everyone. It's also a great way to try a few dishes from each category.
We had the most amazing nigiri and sashimi - still talking about it to this day...it was so fresh.
We also tried the dim sum, curry and the most creative dessert - Mango pudding! Beautiful and tasty.

I most definitely recommend Spices. The restaurant isn't only open to hotel guests; you can visit when staying in the area.
5 star service and hospitality. Definitely a Michelin contender!

Thank Agnes S

Came to Bürgenstock to visit the Alpine Spa next door last minute without having researched the place. We went to the next door oak grill but were not impressed by the menu and even less so by the prices (high even for Switzerland I thought). So we came here and had a look at the menu. It offered a mixture of chines, Indian and Thai dishes: my first thought was this was going to be terrible! Then we saw the kitchen, which is an open style so you can see all dishes being prepared. The chefs all appeared to come from where the dishes were. The real tandoor oven was bellowing up mouth watering flavours, while the sushi chef was carefully preparing an elaborate sashimi dish, laid out on crushed ice. Promising. This was lunch so my wife and I followed our cardinal rules of one starter and one mains to share, although I thought the portions might be too small. However, we were surprised again. The Tandoor lamb chops were soft and smokey and delicious. The Kra Pow, mince chicken Thai style was a more than enough portion for the both of us. You will notice I have not mentioned the restaurant's breathtaking views across Lucerne lake because the food was really that good. So we will definitely be coming back, probably in the evening to see th marvellous sunset. As for price, these 2 dishes were less than the price per person for the set lunch. So my advice, go a la carte order less, and you will still leave stuffed and happy

It is a good restaurant but very badly managed probably like the rest of the hotel. We made a booking in February 2018 for the end of July 2018 with a request for a window table overlooking the Lake Lucerne. When we reached the hotel they offered us a table in the middle of nowhere, which we refused. We were given a table overlooking the concrete wall supporting the hotel on the cliff. The food is really good. So if you can enjoy the good food in spite of the poor service, I would recommend it to you.
