We had a dinner in this restourant with my 3 collegues. We are from different counties and different age groups, but though we enjoyed the dinner all of us.

The food here is excellent. This is fancier resturant but also has a pub side. The service was always good. I eat there many times when I was working in Switzerland. it is a must if you are in the area.

Dining alone on New Year's Eve is admittedly not the most exciting activity. For that very reason I had looked for a restaurant offering a nice dinner but without glitter or formal dress code. Sempacherhof fulfilled all my expectations!

The Gasthaus is conveniently located opposite Sempach-Neuenkirch railway station - with regional trains running every 30min from Lucerne.
Thumbs-up for the warm welcome and the whole staff, who provided a professional and efficient service during the entire meal.

As said, although the dining room was intimate and cozy, the main focus remained the food - and not any fuss, formal attire or overflowing champagne!
The Silvester-Menu was comprising six courses but I opted for a four-course-dinner:
- As amuse-bouche I got a tasty fish ravioli on a couscous bed.
- As starter I chose the warm goat cheese with beetroot carpaccio, light and delicate.
- The chicken broth in-between was a welcoming and revigorating break.
- The main course was really a highlight: wagyu beef served with cauliflower puree. The meat was incredibly tender with a wonderful buttery taste!
- As dessert the milk quark soufflé was light and tasty.

The bill amounted to CHF121 - admittedly quite high. However, given the excellent food and good service, Sempacherhof offers very good value for money. I will definitely come back!

Our searches for overnight stays in Switzerland these days tend to follow Gault Millau recommendations of capable restaurants simultaneously offering accommodation. And so was it that we landed at the Sempacher Hof.
The accommodation is modest but adequate and clean - even if the decor is retro 70's. A potential issue (for the less fit) is the fact that the accommodation starts only from the second floor and after a rather steep climb. A further issue is the fact that the hotel is located opposite the Sempach ralway station - a source of noise (although generally not at night).
The hotel's gastronomic restaurant offers an unpretentious menu based on fresh products, freshly prepared.
Bottom line: a modest place (which, incidentally, could use some freshening) offering good value for the services and rooms on offer. Dogs are aso welcome - including in the restaurant. Viator ed cani Coloniae
