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

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.
