Seafood lovers: you're in for a treat!

I love seafood, and have had the wonderful privilege to have tasted good seafood in my day. So when my husband and I walked by this place and saw the fishmonger outside the restaurant, I had an intuition we had to dine here. Well this was our lucky day! The staff was super friendly and... read more

A restaurant to be definitely on your list during your stay in Montreux. Kitchen is really good if you like onions. If you don't then please be explicit in requesting to add onions or garlic in dishes where it does not belong. The service is almost always exquisite and the ambiance recommendable.

I know this restaurant from TA, and it is easy ti find out the location. Restaurant since 1965, the Italian cooking skill is wonderful. We order 2 pasta and both of them taste perfect. I will surely go again when coming back to this city.

Unbelievably slow service and incredibly bad value. Just a reminder; a mojito is not two mint leaves floating with three ice cubes in 99% water and 1% white-rum (14 francs).

We dined here based on recommendations on Trip Advisor. We had booked ahead of time but were ignored for at least 15 minutes. Our food was pleasant but took longer than other tables to arrive. Our dessert of strawberries was even served differently to the French speaking table next door...really what's up with this? At least the server had a... More

The service is nothing to write home about, but the food was good. The house salad was fresh, crisp and well dressed with olive oil. The Gnocchi was light and tasty and the Risotto special was well cooked and had the right amount of shrimp and the asparagus was crispy. We had the fresh strawberries (in season) and ice cream...

We went here on our first night in montreux it was very very busy but we had a very friendly waiter who was very attentive. We ordered bruschetta which was delicious and pizza each which was tasty and quite big! Would definitively recommend!

Had a pleasure to have our evening meals at the la Rouvenaz last week. Probably 30% more expensive than the equivalent foods in UK, but isn't it everything in Switzerland? Never the less, it was a good, wide chooses of menu. Pizza was very well made and the starters and desserts were also great too. Staff was nice and setting... More

My wife and I were passing through Switzerland and met up with a friend who lives there. He took us to this restaurant and I just had to report on this romantic place. We were looked after by two beautiful young ladies Indira and Josee. These young ladies were so helpful and professional which made the evening simply wonderful. They... More
