Description: Culinary tradition and modernity meet perfect balance in Sens : The menu offers typical regional dishes as well as modern and exotic creations for every taste. And if you still want to be closer to the lake, eating on the beautiful terrace or small island just above the water. Enjoy from here the beautiful view and the most beautiful sun gear on Lake Lucerne! The perfect end to an unforgettable evening guarantees our cozy lounge Sens. A fine dinner drink, a glass of wine or a fruity cocktail and you'll find yourself at least now in absolute holiday mood again, which could not be better.

Great food, charming ambiance, and great service. Charming short walk from the Vitznauerhof hotel, making it easy to stay on-site during our hotel stay.

Probably the best dining experience I have had in Switzerland in the most beautiful setting.
A very balanced menu with an excellent selection of wines to match.

We stayed at the Hotel Vitznauhof and ate at Sens for dinner. We normally do not like hotel restaurants, but Sens isn’t attached to the hotel. It’s a close walk, but still separate with amazing views of Lake Lucerne. The interior is small, but not cramped. We were the only foreigners in the restaurant, but all staff spoke excellent English. The food was excellent and fresh. A little expensive (we’ve eaten at Michelin Guide restaurants in Paris for 1/3 the price), but Switzerland as a whole is very expensive. The service was wonderful. If TripAdvisor allowed 1/2 star ratings, I’d give Sens a 4.5, but I cannot so I rounded up to a 5!

My wife and I ate dinner one night during a long weekend in Vitznau at Sens. They have a beautiful collection of tables on a little dock over the water. Needless to say the setting is beautiful. And the food was a match for the setting. And rare for many places in Switzerland, a good selection of fish. The food was innovative with some dishes toying with deconstructed/molecular gastronomy. But it was all delicious and the staff were super friendly and clearly proud of their restaurant. The night we ate the chef de cuisine was in the hotel and the sous chef was cooking in the Sens kitchen. They have no worries about succession planning, the sous chef delivered a great meal. We will definitely return on our next visit to Vitznau. I recommend Sens highly!

Small but nice decor restaurant. The seating outside overlooking the lake is breathtaking. Service is friendly and excellent.
The menu offers typical regional dishes as well as modern and exotic creations for every taste. Creative and delicious dishes. We enjoyed every dish that was presented, from the amuse bouch to the desserts. The lemon tart was the best I had.
Chef Karim Schumann is seriously talented and creative. I raise hat for him and his wonderful team. He deserves one Michelin star and he should get it soon.
