Some of the best food in Lausanne

The food and service is fantastic! We live in Lausanne and eat here a quite often. Be prepared for your main courses as they come in two servings. Just when you think your done the second half arrives. Good wine selection as well. Book the patio in the warmer months.

Food's always good at Croix D'Ouchy. The vegetarian options are limited but that's because the menu isn't very long. The lemon risotto is great and so is the ricotta ravioli. Although these don't seem like they could blow your mind, these dishes are consistently great; not good, but great. The wine list is not bad either.

This restaurant in Lausanne maintains an exquisite menu and a very friendly service. It has a very nice terrace during the summer months and is only a few hundred meters from the Lake front hotels. Worth the visit.

This was my first visit in this restaurant and I fell in love! It is charming, the staff is very friendly and the food is superb. The price tag is on the higher side, but is so worth it! A must stop in my book for the food.

A sure place to go in Lausanne if you run out of other options. Price tags are on the higher side but consistency in menu and food quality desrves a respect. I see a number of dishes served since 2009. Good restaurant and cafe overall but be prepared to spend over 100 francs per person with a good bottle of... More

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 restaurant so excellent, this is... 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)
