Horrible service

Clearly something is wrong here. It feels like the staff are in a battle with the owner and are deliberately trying to ruin the place by slowing down the service. We were the first table to be seated for lunch in the main dining room and still had to wait 15 to 20 minutes for menus despite there... read more

We chose this restaurant for our last night in Montreux as it looked busy and fun. Even though we made a reservation and did our best to communicate in French, the waitress wasn't very helpful and we felt rushed from the moment we entered this restaurant.

Chairs are not comfortable and too big for the small space. The service was long, the staff not very helpful, and the food quality wasn't great. Second time we go in the last few months and still no improvements I'm afraid.

Nice decor and atmosphere, but the food was just average. Really quite bland pasta dishes that we could have cooked better at home. But what really spoiled it was the attitude of the waiter. As another review has mentioned, it seemed as though it was a hasslefor him to serve us. After we declined desserts and coffee he kept us... More

read positive reviews about this place so went to give it a try. Food was ok. Not fantastic. Had seafood pasta and tasted quite bland. But ambiance was great. Must remember to call to make reservation otherwise might not get a table.

We ate there 2 nights in a row at the end of this month of December 2014. We had seafood both nights (oysters and different sort of clams, and then mussels). We both feel very sick today. By the way I would like to report the rude attitude from the person in charge of sitting us at our table. He... More
