Great back terrace

Lovely terrace for dining My wife likes her fried perch and frites. Kids shared a roesti order that they liked. I had the Roquefort salad with excellent greens and duck meat. Good selection of local wines.

Not much was open Sunday night so we ended up here. Happy I did. The servers were delightful. The fondue la maison was delicious. The garden seating out back was very comfortable and had a great ambiance. Lovely all around.

Few places open Sunday afternoon - this one is. Even on a quiet day there were a couple of fondues on other tables. Dinner for 4 about CH120. Local focus menu. If coming up lower lausane there an elevator on the east end of the bridge.

We had great food and the sweetest waiters. They helped us figure out what to order and were so great throughout the meal. We sat in the beautiful back garden. I never knew potatoes and cheesy could be so good!

If you wish to taste the Swiss cuisine at Lausanne having a great view of the Cathedral, this is the place to go. This cafe-restaurant has a decent variety of traditional Swiss courses, an excellent Roesti (Roesti Maison is highly recommended), reasonable prices and attracts young people (20-40 years old).

I get that choosing a restaurant at the footsteps of Lausanne's Cathedral might have not been the best idea ever but I didn't think it could be so bad. Unpleasant waiters and a waitress not only was brisk and rude but she also made sarcastic jokes on our understanding of the menu to our faces and pretend to rectify once... More

*shake my head* where to start....? I booked a table for 6 (4 adults, two 5 year old kids) a couple of months ago. I am currently pregnant and have had a difficult pregnancy and can't stand/walk much. I was dropped in front of the restaurant while the others went to park. Bare in mind that i was *clearly* showing... More

This is the best Lausanne-centric Fondue spot. It is not the best fondue on the region, but none the less the traditional/local style and the good food is great. BUT if you are bold enough to have a fondue in summer, sit outside and look up at the stunning Gothic cathedral next door.

We went here as a group of 10 as a friend of us who was living here for 5 years recommended to go here for having fondue. We reserved a table to make sure we would get a spot. Fortunately we were lucky as this place got full as we arrived there. We all had fondue, and I have to... More

This small, vintage place near the cathedral is quite a polarising one, so let me put it straight: if you are the fondue type of person you would have a very good time , but if you have issues with the sharp smell getting even into your clothes or with melted cheese, you would not be able to stand it....
