The Restaurant Balances offers diners a marvelous combination of superior service and outstanding cuisine. The menu is sophisticated without being overbearing. One sees that the plates arriving at neighboring tables are exquisitely done, yet they do not over-reach, for if one eats with one's eyes...More

Perfect place to have a coffee, wine or antipasto plate. Best view overlooking Lucerne. Very nice and cosy inside. In summer time you can sit out on the balcony which overlooks the lake.

We had lunch in this very romantic restaurant very close to the river and to the city center. The waiters are so professional and polite. Food is very very good but not so much, more or less like in the nouvelle cuisine.

We ordered beef fillet with lobster and salmon as our main courses. The charcoal grilled lobster and beef were super duper delicious. Couldn't recommend more!

We had dinner here when staying in the hotel. Great food and services but slightly pricier compare to other countries but worth to try. Beautiful decor, great ambiance and great bar area.

Description
In Balances restaurant, Luzern, head chef Andy Fluri creates culinary masterpieces with great success. This master chef, who has been awarded 14 points by the prestigious Gault-Millau guide, takes his guests on a flight of fancy for the taste buds, with delicacies such: as cream of parmesan soup with basil Espuma and beef fillet steak carpaccio; braised veal cheeks in a truffle jus, served with a potato and onion mash and savoy bacon; or dumplings filled with chocolate and nuts, accompanied by apple mousse with sour cream and banana ice cream. All meals are prepared with only market fresh produce and everything is produced according to the season. Guests are welcomed with historic flair, which is also in keeping with modern design and makes for a stylish establishment decorated in warm, natural tones. This extraordinary ambience is even more enhanced by the terrace, which looks directly on to the Reuss, which sets the mood not only for the romantics, but for all diners, as there is a sense of being on the Venecian Grand Canal.
