My old local - great times

Lausanne has lots of bars and restaurants, but none like this. It is always packed after 8pm - which is fine as it is always a great vibe. Sunday Brunch is really good and relatively well priced (compared to some of the other brunch spots in town). Keep in mind - this is NOT solely a bar or... read more

We had heard a lot about this place so were expecting it to be great. The truth is that it was very average. Good atmosphere but the brunch was quite disappointing. Eggs were overdone, toasts dry and my girlfriend's pancakes were thick and rubbery. Maybe just bad luck but don't really recommend it.

235 francs for 4 people with 2.5 bottles of wine - no appetizers. Actually a decent deal for Switzerland@ I got a great Beer Tartare and had some bites of the other peoples hamburgers. A decent hambyrger is difficult to find outside America or Australia, but these were pretty good! This place is bumping on Fri and sat so if... More

My friends and I (4 girls) had dinner in this great "restaurant-bar-pub" a few weeks ago and we loved it! The food was really good, especially the Shrimps&Coquie St-Jacques with its amazing dark-blue rice and the burger my friends took was really yummy and tasty as well! The atmosphere was awesome, since I love the "English pubs' ambiance" I was... More

Working in the hospitality industry myself I am not a particularly big supporter of TripAdvisor. My last visit to the L'Etoile Blanche however was so disappointing that I wish to share my experience so that others may not experience the same I did. My girlfriend and I have been visiting the L'Etoile Blanche for the last 4 years now. Our... More

Very nice place with very good food, the salat césar is very tasty and you have to taste the burgers! People are very nice even if you have to wait a bit too long to be serve, but it's a really great place to be!

Relaxed attitude and good food are the reasons that the Etoile Blanche is a great place for weekend lunches, family meals, coffee with friends or drinks at night! We love the burgers, especially their burger de l'etoile, but also the salad with tuna sashimi... all beautifully presented and in line with their pub-ish ambiance
