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

I reserved a table in the conservatory overlooking the lake, midweek, for an anniversary meal. On arrival we got exactly what I asked for. This is a classy, high-profile Italian restaurant on the main drag and consequently attracts many passing diners. At 7:30 PM the restaurant was already almost full thus vindicating the decision to make a specific reservation. After... More

I was concerned about the service after choosing this restaurant based on the TA reviews. I can see why the personnel would fall into a little bit if arrogance if provoked. But this was not the case for us. We made reservations and were greated with courtesy and given a very nice table on the terrace. Around sunset, this is... More

We came in without a reservation around 7:00pm on a Sunday. We were seated right away in the backroom. Our server did not seem at all happy to be there. He unhappily took our orders brought our food and never came back to get us more drinks. Tracking him down for the check was not an easy feat. Food and... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal, however, front of house and waiter service has much to be desired. I booked a table well in advance of our stay in Montreux. However, on arrival at the restaurant we were greeted by a glum faced waiter, who mumbled and then marched off to check. He returned and simply pointed over to a table... More

My daughter and I shared a vegetarian pizza and a rouvenaz salad. Pizza was good but I really remember the salad. It was a meal size salad with chicken, eggs, vegetables and a delicious dressing. Loved our meal.
