We travel a lot, mostly in the U.S. and Europe, and have dined at some awesome restaurants in some beautiful locations. This restaurant is quite possibly the best dinner experience we have ever had. The drive up was filled with beautiful views of Lake Geneva and they continued once we arrived at the restaurant. On one side of the restaurant... More

Yes, one could eat very well at this restaurant but now one has the impression that they live on their reputation. Prices are high and the quality of the food is not that great. The service is without a smile most of the time. The setting is beautiful though,

We have been to this restaurant many, many times. While they have an extensive menu, we always order the same meal - rabbit with Polenta. This dish is just fantastic. The setting is up on the mountains above Montreux. The restaurant is lovely and the service always perfect. We just cannot think of enough good things to say about it.

On a hot day it was a nice and comfortable temperature on around 1400 m. They were almost full outside - 35-40 people, which considering it is quite a distance up and on a week-day, was an indication of the good weather and the reputation. The "Chief" lady serving worked very hard with changing parasols for the customers and is... More

Friends of ours in Montreux recommended this restaurant and I have to say it was among the best meals I have had in my life. The location is in Les Avants which can be a challenge to get to without a car -- even with a car it made for an exciting trip up (and down) narrow mountain streets. The... More

During a recent family trip to France, we discovered this restaurant online and decided to nip over to Montreux. As most restaurants in Switzerland do not open on a Sunday, we were relieved to learn that this establishment was open every day except Monday and Tuesday. At 1283m the mountain drive was not for the faint hearted in our 9-seater... More

We can highly recommend this restaurant, the food and its presentation is fabulous. The service is very friendly and the prices are correct for what you get. Beautiful view and nice walks to do in the area.

This restaurant way above Montreux is a gastronomic surprise. The food was very nicely prepared and was very delicious. The restaurant is lovely and the terrace would be wonderful during the day. The ride up the mountain is stunning and not for the faint at heart. Good service, but you pay for it.
