Can you imagine? 34 people must be very noisy, yet 1 of the waitres ask us to keep quite while eating, which is impossible!! I admit that the food is delicious, but i just dont like the service (in... read more

Montreux is a special town with its own microclimate , more sunny days then anywhere in Switzerland .. Therefore , a lot of tourists come here to marvel a lake view in a good warm weather :) La Rouvenaz is little place, right in the center , where you can just stop by for a coffee , glass of wine...

A long wait, in a noisy place. Hoping you do not get a seat away from the main room as the cold comes in each time the door open. The waiter though seems to be nice, seems under pressure and all over the place. Totally not value for money. I been to La Rouvenaz couple times and each time it... More

Excellent choice for dining out in Montreux. Lovely environment and must try is the Grilled Seafood Salad which I will be back for! Do call to book a table early as they can get crowded after 7pm. Service was friendly and efficient. The waiter managed to crack us up with some jokes too! Would certainly recommend this place for a... More

Heard a lot about the restaurant but couldn't get a reservation in. Super packed and very popular. We tried walk-in one night but were told no tables available till 9.30 and turned away. But finally, we decided to try again the next night and they actually sat us! There's a certain satisfaction to knowing we finally got what we couldn't... More

Went there during christmas market and the food was fantastic. Do make reservation on their website but the reply was in french only. Food and ambience were excellent but a bit too pricy compared to restaurants in the region.

I reviewed this restaurant about 18 months ago and rated it vey good. I have visited it a couple of times since. It is well positioned on the main street, it looks good and has an upscale image with seafood being prepared outside during the winter months, which enhances its appearance. Consequently, it is popular with visitors. It looks compact... More

Good quality, diversified food, a bit crowded however, not much space and not enough intimacy between tables. Not cheap, swiss prices...;-)

What a popular place this fine establishment is. There is nothing you cannot get in here to please you. I had the Chateaubriand and it was truly delightful. Staff are busy and can often leave you waiting a while before you get your drinks.

Stay away from this place: the food is badly prepared (no sauce on pasta, meat too cooked when asked for rare), and the seafood is old (everbody was sick during the night). It's also very expensive, a total disaster.
