Nice and easy to order. Staff friendly as well as the burgers are quite good. If you want something easy and chilled to eat try this place.

Marketing is great. But quality is mediocre. Burger is fatty and doesn't taste great. Burger King is better in taste, and less expensive. Don't go.

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.

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 swiss context. The... More

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
