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 :)

This restaurant is conveniently located, not far from the Lausanne railway station. This cafe-restaurant usually attracts young people and tourists. The atmosphere is nice inside and the interior shows character. While the prices are well above the average, I had mixed experiences with the food. Sometimes they prepare delicious dishes and they use a fairly decent portion size, while other... More

This restaurant was handy because it was close to our hotel.We arrived and the waitress showed us to a table.The room was very warm with no air conditioning.The Menu was only in French.The food was very expensive for what we got.CHF 49 for 2 Salad Starters & 2 artisian beers.Like I say very basic & overpriced.

Firstly, the restaurant do not have English menu which indicated that they do not welcome non-French speaking guests. No waiter could explain the menu to us in English. We have to use google translation to guess what each item mean. In the end, we decided on a steak, a grilled chicken and a seafood risotto. I can only say that... More

I found this cafe on Tripadvisor as a search showed it a short walk from my Lausanne hotel. It was as good as promised. I was early enough to get a single place on the reserved front terrace at 6pm, and had a most delicious smoked duck and fois gras salad. There's plenty of space inside for the cooler days... More

Been here for late night drinks on a few occasions before got back to the hotel next door. Reserved a table for the first time and found it just as lively. Even my 79 year old father loves this place. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Artisan beers are interesting. The food was superb. We had the smoked salmon, prawns and... More

Great place to go as long as you steer clear of the coffee which tasted like dirty water the two times I've drunk it here. The tapas, on the other hand are tasty and not too expensive, and with a cold drink makes for a really pleasant meal or snack if you're looking for something less substantial. The choice of... More

Cafe de Grancy is well located - close to Lausanne station and the metro. Living in Lausanne for the past 7 years I wouldn't go here specifically for the food - there are much better places. But for coffee and drinks at any time it's great - lively atmosphere, good place to meet up with pals, the place does buzz.... More

If you're looking for a seat-down place with good food and normal places, this is the place in Lausanne. Recommended.
