As usual we had a great trip to the Holy Cow in Lausanne Chauderon (or Rue du Bourg great too). I especially recommend the Poulet Satay which has real filets of chicken in it and great satay sauce. The chips are to die for and as they are in a basket they stay hot until the last one - divine!... More

Must visit if you come to lausanne, I had the Mexican and highly recommend. The blonde beer is a good match as light on the pallet and doesn't impact the food experience!

The thing that I love about Holy cow is apart from the local products that they are using as well as the fact that they are trying to promote their burgers as a more healthy option because of the fresh ingredients they add. The different options that the restaurant has make it very special and unique and it is also... More

found the service at the front desk average, the service from the kitchen when they bring the food was very friendly however. Food was ok, I would say that what makes these burgers is the meat which is good. They sell the fact that they are made with local produce, which is nice, but it doesn't make them amazing all...

We were on the hunt for a restaurant for lunch, and decided to look for this place, based on reviews we read on this site. We finally found it, with some difficulty, as construction is going on around the place right now. Admittedly, I was immediately disappointed with the "fast food" setting, as opposed to a normal restaurant setting. Indeed,... More

They have one of the best burger ever! The Elvis Blue Cheese, you have to try it! But otherwise anything is good over there, as long as you like burgers : )

The burgers and fries are delicious! One of the best in Lausanne. I don't recommend going for a romantic/important lunch/dinner though, because it's more of a fast food environment (eg. you have to go order yourself what you want to eat at the checkout).

As I burger enthusiast I was very eager to check out the local Swiss burger joints and was happy to find the holy cow chain. I tried the españa and my girlfriend had the veggi burger. The burger was good, but could have used more veggies to freshen things up, the bread was rather dry. Meat tasted nice and the... More

Really quick and tasty burgers. They only use fresh local ingredients and you can tell. It's a bit expensive but that's not a surprise considering it's Switzerland. You get good value for money from this place. I recommend it to anyone visiting Lausanne.
