Good burger for a reasonable price

I was there looking for good burgers at a decent price. Well, i found them. There is a goos choice of burgers with some interesting ideas like the satay beef or yo ginza beef. The difference is in the sauce and cheese that make them tasty! Prices are ok in consideration of local origin of meat and... read more

We first came across Holy Cow at the Montreux Jazz festival where they had a pop up stall and they've become a firm favorite with the whole family - meriting a special trip to Lausanne each time where our closest is located. Great burgers a good choice & friendly staff.

We enjoyed having Lunch at Holy Cow. Lots of options. It was fairly expensive for a counter style restaurant.

The burgers are massive but they don't come close to the ones served in a restaurant. Holy Cow idea is smart but fast-food is still fast-food after all. The fries are quite heavy (lots of fat in them) and so is the burger. Their in-house syrup drinks have tons of sugar, a cheap way to enhance the flavours indeed. For... More

Extensive menu with good food. Definitely steps above fast food burgers but a bit more than what I would have expected to pay. Regardless, we had everything from the beef to chicken burgers and kids/adults were all happy.

There is no discussion that the burgers offered by Holy cow are better than Mc Donalds or Burgerking... The burgers are bigger and they look more artisanal (handcrafted) and not industrial made. There is a limited selection and when you select the menu you get a basket full of french fries. All by all the burger experience is good but... More

This Holy Cow - one of two in Lausanne -is in a location more likely to be wine bar than a burger place. So it combines the slightly anarchic atmosphere of a hip hamburger joint with the cosiness of a wine "cave". The burgers are fresh, delicious and made to order with combinations of toppings you would not expect to... More

Burgers were quality but the price of the place is very steep like everything else in Switzerland. Be warned

The best burgers in Switzerland for sure! All the products are fresh and come from Switzerland. They have a wide range of types of burgers, it is really great. I have been there a lot of times and it has never disappointed me :)

Holy Cow is a fast food selling local products, food and drinks. The meat is tasty and juicy. Try the various burgers, blue cheese is excellent. Highly recommended and nothing in common with the awful fast food worldwide known. The price is higher then elsewhere but you get quality fast food.
