The key word in this review's title is "consistently". In 20 meals I was never disapointed with the quality of the food and was often amazed by how soft and tasty the meat was. The service has always been top notch and I always appreciate being welcomed by the owner. Sure it is slightly loud inside, but what to expect... More

A well diversified menu with regional and international dishes, but at the top end of the market prices. Frequently fully occupied, even hosting 2 sittings at midday for some tables. Dish of the day is advised if you have a restricted budget, and it also ensures rapid service, which otherwise is not the case in this establishment. House wine acceptable,... More

This is a local-friendly dining option, as seen from the French-exclusive menu. No one spoke decent English while we were there. Luckily, we had the translator app on the iPhone, made it a breeze to order and have them served just the way we wanted. Not your typical Swiss food, most probably mixed with a slice of French dishes. Service... More

Lively, atmospheric bistrot offering great steaks. Service can be a bit slow and the menu is only in French. Luckily I chose what I wanted, but it could be an issue for people not knowing what they want.

Sharing a menu with Swiss regional specialities are classic entrees from both France and Italy. There is a wine list to match, although you are better staying with the local reds and whites. The atmosphere buzzes (another way of saying that the volume can be a little excessive from time to time), and reservations are essential during the midday service.... More

Exactly this way - in good tempo, with absolutely positive atmosphere, swimming among waves of hilariousity of locals and warmth of the service. How they were excusing in front of my wife when I split the wine on table, the manager looks at his colleagues the same way as to the clients - with a smile and an interest. Pleasure... More

If you want to eat some good meat in a cozy atmosphere, this café is the best in Lausanne. We went there several times and each time have been impressed with the quality of the food and the service. All this for a very reasonable price! Definitely one of my favorite places in Lausanne.

This is definitely a great place to eat meat and specially raw meat like steak tartare. Not the best place in Lausanne but a great place even if atmosphere is more business based than brasserie

It is loud and lively. The food is simple brasserie dishes, mainly meat, fresh and perfectly executed. Try the fondue du vigneron (if you are not on diet...), a very nice surprise. The tartare is one of my favorite there as well.
