Nice Hamburges and good ambience

Nice restaurant brasserie style with a good size terrace on sunny days. The best is the young stylish atmosphere and the different types of hamburgers.

We went to L'Etoile Blanche for lunch with 3 kids and 4 adults, the service was great (Thanks Alvaro!) the kids had PLENTY to eat and it was really a bargain. We adults were all happy with our food but the gold star goes to the Bangkok Beef.

After living in Zürich the past year and tasting many disappointing burgers, we were in heaven in this place - easily the best burgers in this country so far! The bun as well the burger were self made (not some industrial stuff), the vegetables and salad inside were fresh and sauces tasted great. I definitely recommend!

Quite nice fresh eggs with smoked salmon on side. Very well done and tasty. Service decent. Prices reasonable for Lausanne.

Situated right next to the road with some tables adjacent to the bus stop (ours!!). We were ushered to a table that had a reserved sticker on it so were a little concerned that someone would be turning up for it!. But luckily the staff found another free table for the people with the reservation. Service a little slow although... More

I have eaten here a meal, after having been here other times only for a beer. Food are ok (6 out 10), nothing special, and price are within the average in Switzerland so very high. Considering that the table are nothing that i would call comfortable, I think it would be better if they keep the beer selling side rather... More

All languages are spoken in this spacious and delightful bar and restaurant. Although I normally go for the bar, food is good and very affordable. EB has great burgers and a fun atmosphere not lacking in characters. This is a good spot for people watching and people meeting. Rarely quiet! Bessiers metro stop.

I did not book and was told I could not sit anywhere I want which is fair. However it was said in a very rude manner and on top of that the "booked" tables were empty until I left! I was served 30 mn after I placed my order. Worst service ever. Last but not least the pancakes ( from... More

I recently went to Etoile Blanche with a group of friends.. I hadn't eaten there in about a year. We all had burgers and the general opinion was one of disappointment. The bread was dry, the meat was over-cooked... Also the presentation has changed, what are these stainless steel plates you serve the food on now, whatever happened to those... More
