Search no more if you look for something authentically Swiss! Fondue is really good, the service is average, but this is not the place to expect something more. It works like that anyway, not a problem for me. The big big minus I would say are the lights. In such an environment it is a great pity to put the... More

I went there a couple of times, and it's always a great experience! The food it's really good, and it's as Swiss as it can be. Great place to go and not to expensive.

One of the bet, maybe the best restaurant in Lausanne for swiss food, specially cheese fondue. And the swiss wines are also of good quality. The staff are impeccable and friendly . It may be a little bit difficult to have a serious conversation because there is a very good atmosphere. But in fact that doen'st matter because you go... More

Wow, the kids were melting down. They opened the kitchen a wee bit early for us (6:30 PM), which made life easier for both them and us, I'm sure. Excellent steak. The shredded potato dish (Rosti) was OK, though I prefer "breakfast skillets" in the states. This was good by Swiss standards, crisped potatoes, soft cheese, and sausage (we used... More

Nice traditional place that serves good food in a good atmosphere. The salad is good and the pictures on the wall are interesting.

We've been there because we've heard we could eat the best fondue of Lausanne, it's true. It was very tasteful, we will go again. The staff was friendly and always available. It's better to call before you go. We recommend.

This is my favourite resto in the region for Swiss food. The staff are impeccable. They are intelligent friendly and so nice! The head waiter and waitresses were all so communicative and positive. They had larger than life smiles and genuinely cared to provide a superior atmosphere. It's a special historic place, the new dining hall opens next week, so... More

Very authentic small joint, cheese fondue menu is the way to go, share with friends, rustic and hearty. Nice wine from the regio, not disappointed. Even room fo dessert, amazing. A good place to take novices to Swiss cuisine.
