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.

I had dinner at Brasserie du Grand Chene with some business colleagues, and it was a very pleasant evening overall. The food was very tasty - we ordered a plate of oysters as starters and a selection of dishes as main course: entrecote, truffled gnocchi, fillet with Bernaise sauce, chicken curry... I had tarte tatin as dessert and it was... More

We were a party of five (with family members). The seafood was amazing, however meats and other traditional french dishes were average. Although service was usually kind it was extreemly slow. (Not great if you re having a business lunch). Overall the place is a safe bet, but they could do much better. Main dishes are around 40 chf.

This brasserie is linked to the Palace hotel and has a nice atmosphere with, for Swiss standards, good service. Prices are not low, as basically every restaurant in Switzerland, but the quality of the food is excellent. Especially the seafood, oysters and langoustines, is very nice. A good choice of wine. Certainly a good place to go for business diners... More

We chose this place because it was near. We were surprised with such a nice place. The service is very good and the sea food delicious.

We picked this restaurant based on all the raving reviews. We were a party of 2, ordered soup for each, 12 escargot, pan fried fish and ground beef with foie gras and truffle sauce, with a bottle of red wine. As said in the title, there was a broken piece of plastic in my french onion soup, and a swimming... More

I have eaten here perhaps 10 times. The description comfort food comes to mind. There is no new culinary ground being plowed here. Instead the menu consists of bistro classics correctly done. But that is precisely what entertains when one comes here. They have never put down a false foot. A Lausanne favorite.
