Amazing, good value for the money, restaurant!!!

You can choose to eat in the restaurant or in the café, the menus are the same. Choose the restaurant for a quiet & romantic evening, choose the café for a more casual, animated evening. In the summer, a lovely terrace is also open. Anyway, it is not so much the premises that make this... read more

This isn't the tourist restaurant. It's not fast food. They're not trying to be. The menu is all in French and there isn't an English version and the food is bliss. They take time. Oh my. Prepare yourself as the portions are an event and be clear on just what portion you are getting as our starters were mains and... More

You feel like being in a living room eating in the salle de restaurant, maybe a little old-fashioned. The staff is very professional and what is appreciated is that most dishes are served in two rounds. Wine card is very nice. If you are into truffles, they have some nice proposals, if you are not, then avoid the place, as... More

The service is classy, friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and for once in lausanne it is actually worth the money you pay. The inside is a bit old but in no way too old or dirty. It kind of adds a romantic mood. Reservation highly recommended. (minimum 24h before as they are always booked out)

Risotto is out of this world, make sure somebody in your party gets it. Portions are BIG so take your appetites and share with everyone. Service is friendly, professional but not ostentatious. We tried to go back the very next night but they were booked! Like everything in Lausanne it's pricey but I have to admit I never had to... More

This Michelin listed restaurant offers great service and great food. Nothing too sophisticated but the standard fare is very well done, do not miss this restaurant if you are Lausanne. The Lobster Ravioli was so good, I had to ask for a spoon not to waste the remaining sauce. The beef with onions was sublime, could not leave a drop... More

Took my clients there for a lunch and it was delicious. Everyone went with the risotto as a main and we shared starters. Enormous portions. American size you could say and the risotto came in two servings. Be prepared, you think you're done and there it is again. May be a good idea to strategise with a mate about hero... More

As from lausanne and have tried a lot of restaurants, i can definitely suggest this one. The best are the beef carpaccio and vegetables carpaccio as starters. As main course, My favorites are veal scallops with lemon and honey, papardelle with safran and gambas, beef Stroganoff and their menu of the season. The owner is always there with a smile,... More
