Good food reasonably priced

We got to Evian-les-Bains a bit later than anticipated, so the choices for dinner were limited. The desk person at the Hilton suggested this place. We were seated promptly. The pasta was better than we expected....the gorgonzola gnocchi was delicious! All around decent place for dinner.

After struggling to find many places open to eat in Evian on a sunny September evening, we decided to abandon hope of eating French and settle for Italian at this restaurant. The service was excellent and very friendly (Maxime) and the food was plentiful, tasty and hot. We had an antipasto plate to share, a pizza and a pasta dish.... More

Lunched here with friends. Doesn't look great from passing but food is actually not bad at all with very good friendly service. Great and large starters, delicious ravioli. It's right opposite the ferry to Lausanne on the lake edge - so good meeting point.

We popped in here for a lunchtime pizza as our daughters had demanded that. First off we were impressed that it was busy and patronised by locals, always a good sign. The service was prompt and friendly and we were served complimentary appetisers which was a nice surprise. As we all had pizzas it is difficult to make expansive comments... More

We ate here on a Friday night in early March, the restaurant was surprisingly busy and we had no reservation, but they managed to squeeze us in. The staff were friendly, and the food was excellent.

Picking a restaurant on the waterfront in Evian seems a risky proposition, given the large number of tourists who visit this town. But Le Grand Cafe turned out to be exceptionally good--if you like authentic Italian food, but who doesn't? We enjoyed a variety of pasta dishes (pizzas for the kids) and we all loved it. With a fantasic tiramisu... More

Started with green salad and tomato bruschetta and main course of lasagne which left no room for dessert. All very high quality and served by attentive waiter/proprietor. Comfortable surroundings but ate our meal under the constant scrutiny of bored bartender which was a little disconcerting. Competitively priced and good value.

We had the pleasure of going to this restaurant for lunch very recently while on a day trip to Evian-les-Bains. We had gone to Switzerland on the backend of a tour through southern Italy and were spending some time in Lausanne. We took the CGN ferry across lac Leman to the French side and docked at Evian. It is a... More
