The staff were welcoming and warm though we did not have any reservations. We had the steak and lamb and finally an ice cream for dessert. All were delicious and served well.

Excellent meal served in a great hotel right next to the river with views over the river to the town. Excellent service and very helpful staff. Location is ideal for anyone staying in Lucerne. Would highly recommend.

Delicious, beautifully presented dinners. The BEST chocolate ice cream for dessert. Glass of wine is quite small compared to US -- but typical in Switzerland. Quite expensive, but ambiance and service and food are worth the extra.

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.
