Lovely French style brasserie with tasty food

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.

This is the only restaurant in Lausanne where you can get a wide range of raw oysters from France. Our experience, however, has been varied. While the atmosphere is good, the quality of sea food can vary. The last time we ate oysters here, we found that they had a bitter after taste. In the evening rush hour, service can... More

We came to the Brasserie Grand Chene 2 nights in a row as it was the only restaurant with an open kitchen past 11pm on a Sunday and Monday night. Although we came because of lack of options, I would still recommend this place for its attentive and courteous staff and good food although a bit on the pricey side.
