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.

It was raining today and we spotted this cozy restaurant . Ambience was great and food was excellent ! Pizzas wr done by an Italian chef to perfection! Dessert ' panna cotta ' was delicious .. Totally recommend this place . Prices are Swiss style and service slightly on the slow side ... Though all worth the wait :)

We were looking for a restaurant to have dinner in Montreux and we saw this one on trip advisor, it looked nice so we called and booked it for 10min later. Good that we did because the restaurant quickly filled up with people. I had spaghetti Vongole and my boyfriend had osso buco. Both tasted AMAZING and the quantities were... More
