Lukullum in Friedrichshafen is a Restaurant offering typical Swabian dishes, but also Pizza and Pasta, Steaks and more. It just re-opened again this summer as it sadly had to close earlier this year. Lukullum in Friedrichshafen is now owned by the same that already operate the not-neither successful and well-known “Max & Moritz” in Kressbronn, also at Lake Constance. Their Food is more than delicious and they even brew their own beer, that is available both at Max&Moritz Kressbronn and Lukullum in Friedrichshafen. Lukullum is one of the best Restaurant in Friedrichshafen!
Curious about what remained from the earlier days I was excited to finally eat again at Lukullum. The restaurant and beer garden is located in the city centre of Friedrichshafen and if you come by Car, the main train and bus station is just a few footsteps away, you should be either pretty early or park at the nearly located “Graf-Zeppelin-Haus” underground parking as the spots for parking are limited. When I entered the Restaurant through the main entrance I was happy that the interior stayed the same. It’s very iconic, cosy and interesting. Just look at the Pictures of their differently themed rooms (1, 2, 3) and you will understand what I mean. If you haven’t made a reservation, what you should, just ask at the entrance if they have any remaining table. Otherwise, you can have everything “to go” as well, so in the worst case, you can eat your Steak or Kässpätzle in Picnic-style at the closely located Lake Constance. But as I experienced they often have a possibility, and so I got a table as well.
What changed is the Menu, not very much, but a few dishes were added and some are missing. On the old menu there were some smaller dishes, some more with vegetables and also a few dishes for Kids – they are all missing now. You can find the current Menu on their Website. What’s really up-to-date are the labels for Vegan and Veggie dishes, but they offer a lot of Meat, Fish and Steaks as well. I’ve chosen the Kässpätzle as a main dish and dispensed the dessert as my favorite one from earlier isn’t available anymore: Nonnenfürzle (Nun’s puffs).
Our order came pretty soon and everything tasted really good. Somehow I was a bit “irritated” to find steamed onions in the Spätzle, what is not very usual, but the fried onions on top were very tasty. Unfortunately, there was no side salad, at a price of 9.90 €, but the portion was satisfying enough for dinner.
The Prices are quite sophisticated, but overall the food and drinks are very good. As the Restaurant just reopened one month ago I hope the service of the waitress improves in the future, but nevertheless, all the staff and the owner were always friendly and caring.
The next time I will have Dinner or Lunch at Lukullum in Friedrichshafen I will try their handmade Ricotta and spinach ravioli, that you will definitely find on Instagram as soon as I enjoy them.
