This was only the third time we were at Carlo Crisci's Restaurant in Cossonay (I wish we were oftener there). Note that it is always easy to find a parking space there at a distance less than about 200 m away from the Cerf. The Gault Millau Guide attributes 18 point to this restaurant - a very high rating. We... More

It s a very good table that I definitely recommend to those who like delicate and perfect food. The only things which are a bit overpriced are the wines.

We ordered the fixed-price dinner (three diners) with the most options and each course was delicious, as were the amuse bouches. The brasserie is in a small, contemporary-decorated room. Service by the brasserie waiter and the auxiliary staff, who gave detailed descriptions of each dish, was excellent. The building is 15th c. The chef came by to greet us. Well... More

An heir to the Crissier spirit continues to deliver an elegant cuisine combining traditional high quality ingredients together with less known local herbs as well as flavored olive oils from the chef family's side (Italy). Unusual new Swiss wines with a female sommelier, bravo. The simple decor and pared down tableware let you focus on the fab food. Excellent competent... More

Le Cerf was a lovely experience. However, I'm not sure if it's worth its 2 michelin stars, because although the food was good, it lacked the "WOW" factor. It was however well-presented, with many great colors. I just felt the taste of each dish, especially the dessert, needed an extra oomph of flavor. I was very pleased with the cheese... More

This restaurant is definitively one of the best in Switzerland. The creativity of Carlo Cricci is expressed in a colorful and tasteful way in each and every courses. Most impressive is the way he always find to ensure the taste of each ingredient is well recognizable, while the overall marriage of each ingredient is simply fantastic. And while it is... More

Carlo Crisci is one of the best chef of Switzerland and the Vaud region. The research in the preparation of the plates is stunning from couteau de charentes maritimes, to Swiss veal or Atlantic fish. The 'dressage' is close to an oeuvre d'art ... We are close to perfect from eyes to taste buds! Service is quiete and professional, nice... More

Great "chefs" are always cooking the same food. Fois-gras,langoustines, hommard. Go at Cricci he's going to bring you in another planet, and even if he use luxury goods is always in a different way

Went there with my family to celebrate a birthday, and we had a truly great meal! Le Cerf has two Michelin stars, and Mr. Crisci fully deserves that. The dishes we had were just exquisite, very refined in taste. What struck me was that each plate had around 10-15 different ingredients! You need an army in the kitchen to do... More
