The Museum is situated in a historical building in the old town of Montreux and it is less than 10 minutes walking distance from the main train station. Founded in the early years of the worldwide known Montreux Jazz Festival The Museum has been the place to be for many internationally known stars like Mick Jagger and David Bowie to name but a few. The setting is traditionally Swiss with an authentic atmosphere. In summer a peaceful court invites families and friends to enjoy a meal in a relaxing environment. The Museum accepts groups of up to 150 people and it is the ideal place for family or company events, but it is also a romantic place if you'd like to spend a privileged moment with your loved one. The Museum honours the Swiss cuisine with many different cheese and meat fondues of the highest quality. You could also try their famous' Charbonnade', a charcoal grill on which you grill your meat according to your own taste! Most of the menus are served with the outstanding potato gratin made with chef's secret ingredients (this includes 10 different Swiss cheeses). We look forwards to welcome you soon !

We booked a table for 8 people on Friday evening via trip advisor and received confirmation. When we arrived at the restaurant the very surly waitress said she didn't have a booking for us, refusing to believe that we had actually booked. They did however have a table luckily but it was huge ,for at least 10 . When we... More

I had the best Roesti of my life. The Fondue is awesome and the location is really nice. A little Caveau with a lot of charm. The waitress pretended not to speak English a lot, but she did just fine, which was a bit funny. But the food is really, really good.

It´s a lovely restaurant situated in the hill. You can go there by bus or walk, it´s about 10 minutes of wealk from the lake shore. There is a rustical like decoration in the interior with tables for 4 up to 12 persons. Stuff was friendly, silent and quick :-) The chees fondue was tasty.

Situated up the hill on Rue de la Gare and tucked away under the museum, the restaurant had atmosphere and good service. Recommend you try the beef steak if you love meat.

Our concierge recommended this restaurant and it turned out to be a very nice evening. It is a walk up hill to old town to the restaurant which was pleasant. Le Museum is situated in a 16th century cavern like building with timber frame which seemed very Swiss. The service was excellent and the server very accommodating and jovial. We... More
