Average food and service that are over priced - seems to be stuck between restaurant , cafe and bar concept - atmosphere over lap between the 3 spoils any chance of nice meal . Staff were freindly and helpful but lacking in expertise expected for the prices charged .

I have been a regular client for about 13 years. You never be disappointed as the food always is OK. One nice thing is that the chef also makes seasonal dishes. For me it’s very well placed in the centre of town as I’m here normally for work.

All "good" restaurants in and around Lausanne (guide Michelin) were full up, so I found a table here. I had good asparagus with raw ham, and fish with french fried and salad. Everything was not gorgeous, but not bad at all. Wine, suggested by the very, very nice waitress, was good. Price correct for Switzerland.

My wife had a "croute au fromage" which was 3 slices of bread with melted cheese on top for 18 CHF and I had a "tomme" cheese with roesti that looked like 2 seperate dishes bought frozen from a nearby supermarket, with a cherry tomato on the side. The atmosphere is simply non existing.

Suggested by the hotel we ate here for two nights, waitress spoke limited English but enough to explain the menu, food and wine were very good. Perhaps other reviewers went on an off night, we certainly have no complaints

They brought the curry chicken and it was raw. Not undercooked, but through and through not cooked. What's worse is that when we asked the waitress to return it she did not but got the manger who looked at it and shrugged. We then insisted it be cooked. He took it roughly and 15 minutes later it was returned cooked.... More
