Good food, poor service, overpriced, pretty view.

Food fresh, well prepared and tasty. Service slow and a bit clumsy. House wine very good. Tables small for the service and restaurant seemed a bit cramped. Liked the location but the cost was too much for offer.

Food is average. Staff is good but seemed severely understaffed and so service was veryyyy slow and they kept forgetting to get requested items. Overall not value for money.,.

The food was OK not more than that.. Was very expensive for what we had, everything was a bit stingy.. The servings, the bread was served by 2-3 thin slices... We enjoyed it as we were ready to enjoy our night..in otherwise, it was a rip off (mind the bill and check it before you pay)

I am writing a new review about this restaurant. My friend chose it as her birthday venue even though I warned her about it. After 2 months of bad reviews still no improvements. Service is still awful. Food is still ok but could be of better quality. Just wish they could listen to their friendly customers and make a change... More

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 being several... 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.
