This place is very cutely set up and has a great atmosphere. Great for all age groups. The meals were nicely portioned (we were just able to finish most of what we ordered). Varied menu; fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. I recommend asking what the dishes of the day are! It was a little costly but I think its average... More

A very good choice --- we actually went twice. Food was tasty both nights. I liked the shrimp / calamari salad and the fish entree. The guacamole was average. The service was slow the second night.

The Cafe de Grancy is a hit with locals and tourists alike. Its weekend brunches are so popular, you need to book; the sofa area is often full to bursting. The food is average, but the prices are not - for example, a hot drink with an orange juice and bread basket costs 16 Swiss francs. At a workaday caff... More

relaxed atmosphere not for formal dining. Good selection of bears and good selection wine by the glass. Food is well prepared and presented. Nice terrace but no view.

A busy homely cafe bar that has a great seating area with over stuffed seats. Dinner is great, the food being unpretentious and the wines reasonably priced. Bookings essential.......

Last night I went in this restaurant with my father for dinner. We went without reservation and there was a table outside as well. I ordered a salad with goat cheese and mushrooms and my father ordered a meat tartare. Both of them revealed to be good but their prices were not! About 30 CHF EACH! But what surprised us... More

Atmosphere: cozy with personal feeling. Scattered various chairs and armchairs, feels like someone decorated it with care and love. Eclictic mix of furniture and big view into the kitchen. Location: Centrally located a few steps from public transport including trains, but on a quiet corner of a more residential area. Food: Food is good, don;t expect a gastronomic sensation, but...

This restaurant is conveniently located, just a few minutes walk from railway station. Great atmosphere, there is always crowded - restaurant attracts locals and tourists. Better to make reservation in advance. The food is very good and service is excellent.

Great food, great service and great atmospheare. I like this place very much: they offer a large choice of dishes, for dine but also for the happy hour or for customers who just want to eat some little things with a mug of coffee. Plus for the idea of make games and books availables to everyone.

It is the best salmon tartare that I have ever had. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is cozy too, this is where I would go for a relaxing and chill night with friends. Great place for hangouts too :)
