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

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 solely a... 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
