My colleague recommended this restaurant. It is now called 'Eat-Me'. The new concept is interesting - Gastronomic and fusion 'tapas' dishes, which is rather interesting. However if you are looking forward to a hearty meal, then this is not the place. It is more like a place to have a drink and snacks. Located in Lausanne city center, we expected... More

New owners, new menu, new staff - it's ok but not as good as it used to be. The interior is dark as there are no windows int he main dining area therefore I would not recommend it in the summer. I had lunch there recently and was a bit disappointed. Service was slow and menu limited. Food ok but... More

I visited this restaurant with friends while on a trip to Switzerland. The restaurant was trendy, hip and in a great location. We were seated promptly, but we did have reservations. The service was OK, but we had to wait for water longer than I'm used to. We had a table of 6 people, and are orders were taken within... More

I have been here a few times in the past few years. I have eaten only once though, because i found the price far much to high compare to the food or service itself. Food are okay, but nothing that can justify the price. Although the atmosphere is really good. I think it is perfect for a few drinks with... More

We had all the bad things this time. Had a "confirmed" reservation at 7pm only to be told that they only open at 7.30pm and we should wait at the bar. After we waited 30min at the bar for our table we had to wait another 1h to get our food. My food was cold and I found a hair... More

It's a cool place to chill and have a sofisticate drinks on their confortable sofas. Perfect for a date to bring a lady. About food, it's ok, but nothing wow, a part once you get the bill. I Would go back again, but only for a drink.

We had bought a groupon type thing to try this place out, 80 chf of food for 40 chf. I thought okay, 80 chf should be sufficient for dinner, maybe we'll pay a little more but.... no, no, the final bill 170 CHF. I had one of their sushi dinner, with some nigiri, some sahimi, some small variety... the fish... More

Great menu. Fresh sushi, soups and salads. Entrees are perfectly arranged and not too much food.

We decided to go to Kai Zen as a kind of pre-Valentine's dinner on Saturday evening. We both ordered starters, main courses and a dessert. Results were truly disappointing even though we used to be big fans of Kai Zen. I had the Thai soup which was surely nothing more than ordinary, followed by the Thai crispy chicken that was... More
