A simple place, basic service, however fast and extremely well prepared burgers. Test is great as much as is variety. They also have some interesting artisanal beer crafted in Lausanne that goes very well with the burgers. A definite recommendation.

Holy cow (in both locations in Lausanne) offers a wide and good choice of burgers and siders. Prices are ok by Lausanne standards - i.e., people coming from abroad shall not be surprised to spend 20CHF for burger beer and chips; that's normal and actually relatively cheap. The veggie burger, also for non vegetarians, is definitely to try!

Were we on a family holiday in Lausanne and were heard about this restuarant. It was a real surprised to find this burger restaurant. It offered lots of burger choices and the quality were excellent. It was very busy and has limited seating but well worth the wait. For Switzerland it was reasonably priced.

A very good place and a wide choice of excellent burgers. A young and simple atmosphere (long wooden tables where everyone seats next to eachother) and an very good and quick service. On top you have a good range of locally crafted beers.

Holy Cow is centrally located just above Flon in Lausanne. The restaurant is comprised of long tables with benches that seat about twenty people each. This is a great spot for families to get a great burger, hear some good music, and enjoy the bustling atmosphere. It may even be possible to start a conversation with the people around you.... More

The food is good, the place cozy, and as others have said, pricy when compared to other local burgers fast foods. But be careful with their fidelity card. I discovered after purchasing a dozen menu burgers, that contrary to what they claim the 13th is not offered! They don't charge you the burger (and you have a limited choice) but... More

Nice food but a bit pricy. What is nice is that the service is quick and effective. They serve all day so if you're hungry at 4, you can catch a bite. Enjoy
