Nothing Special

To start with the positive : it's by the lake which is pleasant and the waiter who served us was friendly and efficient. On the negative side : the food. There were 6 of us in all. 5 of us took the dish of the day which was Minced veal, Zurich style served with Rosti. The veal in itself was... read more

Featuring a diverse menu (with nice dishes from the sea), this italian / swiss restaurant serves great tasting food at a reasonable price (for Switzerland). A great view with an attractive launch menu makes this place a great launch choice for both the business traveler and a family traveling together.

Overall, this place could be so much better - granted it is not an expensive restaurant, but neither is it cheap. Considering the amount of money you pay to take your family for a meal here, you are greeted with complete indifference / slight contempt by the waiting staff (apart from the Chinese staff, whom are polite and friendly). OK,... More

We ate here with our family in July. The food was delicious. The prices were quite reasonable. The dessert that I had wasn't my favorite (it was an apple pie type dessert but soaked in a liquor) which was something I had never had before. Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Casual dining. Very neat décor. Shaped like a carrousel... More

Nice place in Lausanne, close to the lake and with good parking (paid). Pizzas are the best choice but other pasta menus are good as well. Prices are ok.

food is not bad, service is fine but overall a little bit too expensive for the standard of that place.

Let's set the stage: if you ask for tap water with your 27 franc pizza, but have the temerity to not also order a beverage from the menu, you will find a two franc water fee on your bill. This restaurant is in a fantastically beautiful location, boats bobbing in the water, Alps glistening across the lake. What a lovely... More

Imagine a big open terrace just off the Vidy port with a view on French Alp Add excellent pizza , probably one of best in town , kind service at usual Swiss prices ( nothing is really cheap here ) Ideal for a relaxing after work family dinner. No business or phone ringing here

I have to break a lance for this place - I really must! Over many years I’ve been to Le Carrousel, mostly with one companion, but also with family, with friends with children, with aged and dieting friends, with fuzzy eaters and gourmands – and although the food is nothing to write a letter home, it has to be said...
