Small Venue with a small but changing Menu. Very nicely presented, friendly service and nice atmosphere. It is on the price side but good, and hence suitable for a special occasion. It is on the way to the Beaulieu Concert hall and hence a good option before a performance which starts around 20:30.

the place is lovely, not in the very big center, but in La Pontaise, a bit up to the center. Service is perfect, and the chef makes all the fresh food in his kitchen! Here you find quality, in a great athmosphere! It is better to reserve your table in advance, especially on the week end! Must try!

Fantastic littler restaurant with a very calm and intimate atmosphere. Everything in the menu is worth trying. The dishes are superb, great quality and presentation. The choice of wines is also of great quality. All this topped with a fantastic friendly service!

This is one of my favourites in Lausanne. It's small, confortable, calm and the food is amazing! There isn't a lot of choices on the menu but everything is always very good. The staff is also very nice and smiling! Worth trying!

Great little bistro with excellent food. Service was great... There seemed to be only one guy serving the whole bistro and yet we never had to wait long for anything. The service was excellent and the atmosphere really relaxed; it very much flat like a local hang out. We took our dog and so we ate on the terrace but... More
