I am a VERY seasoned traveler internationally for both business and family vacations. I was insulted by the waiter and the food was mediocre Italian food, only my husbands Mussels were great. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR AMERICANS since the staff is snobbish and insulting.

We used the Trip Adviser app as we walked down the main street and checked the reviews on the restaurants, when we saw this one, stopped and had lunch. Wow, it was great. The ingredients were obviously extremely fresh. The decor is very nice, inside is really elegant yet trendy. Outside had a great view (still had the smoker problem... More

It is somehow bizarre that places with average food have so much success and I wonder if it helps to have higher prices and oysters on the menu to be hip and the place to be, but for me that’s not enough. I went there a few times for business lunches (as the place looks nice and people don’t seem... More

We found this hotel and we are very glad we did. The hotel was great with a view of Lake Geneva but the best part was the restaurant attached. Great food and service and have returned to eat each time we have revisited Montreux!

Wandering around Montreux stumbled upon this simple Italian restaurant which was quite busy. The food was good Italian stuff but vastly overpriced. The waiter was miserable. The credit card total had automatically been converted into our home currency at an unfavourable rate so beware!

La Rouvenaz was my husband's regular and favourite eatery when he worked in Montreux in 1967/68 so it was quite some time between visits and always a bit of a risk to return to former fondly remembered venues. We were staying in Villeneuve and found the restaurants there on the boisterous side, noisy inside with the tv blaring and customers... More

We had very good meal of grilled seafood and nice local wine. Inside very nice decor and outdoor seating available. Very convenient to the Jazz Festival, but away from it so one got a nice break. Excellent service and well prepared food. Would go back. About average price for nice Montreux restaurant.

The food is excellent, I had the lasagne and this was great. The ambience is ok, nothing special. The service is less than average. Good value for the money.

The food was better than expected, nice burgers and nice starters. The waiter was friendly but it was obvious that he is not trained to do the job. You had to call, clap or whistle to attract his attention. It's the type of waiters that avoid to make eye contact in order to avoid the workload. After almost 2 years... More
