Always a great place to stop

I've always enjoyed this Brasserie, the food and staff are excellent, it's difficult to know whether it is better in summer or winter - in summer it is a bit more open but the road is nearby. I would recommend this - however, this is Switzerland so carries the appropriate price tag, and for a... read more

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the area, whether for business or social gathering. This visit was no different. The ambience was that of a high end Parisienne brassiere, the noise level was moderate and atmosphere was lively. The wait staff were attentive from the moment we entered and were very friendly. The menu changes according to the... More

This is one of the places to go for fine dining in Lausanne. The service is kind, the dishes are great! Especially nice during winter.

On arrival at 5 PM was given a lousy table behind the stairs and told the beautiful upstairs was closed since there is only one waiter.Is this part of the Lausanne Palace or did I miss something ? Started to leave but Hughes found us... More

While very nicely located in the Lausanne Palace, the food was average and not enough value for money, furthermore the service level is also rather disappointing for a place like this. On the other side the atmosphere is very nice. Somehow a pity they do not value this more, but I guess the high traffic does not really make this... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice lunch in this beautiful French style brasserie. There is a great variety of different dishes on the menu and the staff is very friendly and professionel. The brasserie is very popular with locals and tourists so a booking of a table in advance is advisable.

Love the setting, great waiters, very good quality food. We go there monthly and are never disappointed. The service is always fast and the staff always add a lovely touch to our visit. We have never left disappointed or hungry.

We were a group of 5 with a reservation and after we were seated, we were ignored, no menu, water, drinks. We finally had to stop someone to ask for service. When I got my meal, La crust’assiette, I didn't get the accompanying bread and sauces which I found out later when my friend got hers. Another friend ordered the... More

They managed to accomodate us on the way to the airport after one week skiing and our experience was wonderful. Wholesome food perfectly prepared at a wonderful table just for the four of us. They kids loved the food and the little plaques with the names of "interesting" people were fun to look at. Service was perfect.

I had a lovely meal here. Coming into the warm, buzzine restaurant from a cold night, I was made to feel welcome and seated upstairs - the food was exceptionally good. I had the escargot to start and a beef fillet. A lovely meal in a restaurant with a great vibe.
