Very good food, ok service

I had dinner with a group of colleagues at the Cafe Grancy. We had good food, in a modern urban style, and a good service, which wasn't very personal, however. The cafe is nice and cozy and it's a place I'd definitely recommend if you want to have a nice, informal dinner in Lausanne. Our... read more

Nothing special. Nice place for a beer or coffee. The terrace is quite small, crammed and busy - can be difficult find a comfortable spot in warm days. No possibility to sit in the sun.

When you enter, your first impression will be an old pub. But than you see the hipsters whom are having the time of their life and the very relaxed atmosphere which you don't experience a lot in Lausanne city... You'll realize it's a place with a lot of history, story's and secrets. The date was crap... But the cafe de... More

Really good brunch ( although I wouldn't mind the scrambled eggs portion to be a bit larger )! The coffee was good and the staff really friendly. The best part of our visit was that we were allowed to keep our dog inside.

We came here for drinks and fondue. Good service, delicious drinks and food. Turns out we ordered wrong and didn't end up with fondue, but a meat and cheese plate. It was still very delicious! Overall a very nice restaurant with some local wines to order as well.

Nice "young" place and pretty noisy for business conversations. The goat cheese plate was sold out and there was ONE vegetarian alternative. Quite disappointing.

We went to Café de Grancy for dinner on our first night in Lausanne, having chosen it and booked ahead of time, based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were delighted with our choice: everything about the dinner was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive. The ambiance and interior design of the restaurant made for a relaxing, casual, and... More

We ate here several times during our stay in Lausanne. The food was always delicious, the atmosphere was cozy and relaxed, and the servers were very friendly and provided good suggestions for drinks and food. It has a funky and fun vibe with nice music playing in the background. Our favorite place in our two week trip to Switzerland!

We found this restaurant as we were looking for fondue and it has a special fondue menu on a Wednesday. Excellent English-speaking waitress gave us great explanations of all the options. Lots of locally sourced produce, which we liked. Great range of local artisan beers and my friend appreciated the rose wines too. The food was lovely all round. The... More

Very nice place to go ... Has a feeling of going to the cafe of "friends". A variety of food with reasonable pricing.
