Went from brunch on Sunday; booking is mandatory; you can be sure the place is packed (gets very noisy) so service can be a bit slow but nice and informal. They don't serve a buffet brunch but have options a-la-carte instead. The menu also includes a few non-brunch options, like for example a yummy cheeseburger (slightly undercooked though). A renown...

Quite a trendy little café close to the station. Good for kids. It has a good menu and reasonably priced - the brunches are very good. A few tables outside though not much of a view, often busy and needs booking ahead.

Cool place close to the city center with a nice atmosphere and good food. Especially for brunch choises are wide and you can also find meet and fish in the main courses. Prices are high but normal for Switzerland and Lousanne city center! The reason why the final rate is not 4 is related to courtesy which was ok but... More

People are so attentive and charming! The beef tartar is rely good even if it could be more tasty And spicy. The calf tArtar very fresh and fine, with a bit too much of corsica flab. We definitely voted for desserts! The chocolate tart...! Damn it!

This place is very atypical in Switzerland. Reasonably priced, extremely informal, cosmopolitan, fun, with a short but delicious menu. I cant belive it has taken me so many years visting Lausanne for work to discover this place - tucked behind the metro station Grancy (between Lausanne Gare and Ouchy). What I love about it is that it is suitable for... More

Cosy place for lunch in a bistrot style atmosphere, the food is good and the staff young and friendly, not very formal atmosphere.

very nice restaurant, well located near the train station in Lausanne. The food is very nice and they make sure to have orinigial dishes and unique taste. Love the atmosphere of an open older Paris coffee place... Ideal for brunch, and all other meals. Brunch offer is wide and very nice. Ideal for couples / friends gathering / business meal.... More

Having only had coffee and tapas here before, it was wonderful to eat a full meal. It's extremely popular so make sure to book and be prepared to wait even if you do - but it's worth the investment. They have a great range of fondues, huge wine list, plenty of other offerings, and a warm, cosy atmosphere. Service near-faultless.... More

This is a very easy going restaurant, usually there is a lot of people so you shouldn't mind the noisiness. It is perfect for dining with friends. The service is very good and friendly, and they work with the smile on their face, which I find very pleasing. Food is excellent, maybe a bit too expensive for the ambient.

When walking in, the smell of tartufi (truffles) was is the air. The carpaccio was wonderful, great meat and cut the right way. The risotto with truffles was very good. The waiter who served us was very professional and kind.
