Great food and view, hard to beat

Had a great full course meal here, was expensive but worth it. Service was perfect as was wine pairing and I highly recommend the cheese plate to finish off the meal

It's a shame that L'Ermitage is about to close at the end of October. We had a great dinner here and it is truly one of the most beautiful restaurant views in the world. And we've eaten at many of them. This is just a beautiful spot on the lake for a quiet romantic dinner. The food was, as you... More

Refined fare, excellent service all round, very good location right on the lake. We had the lunch menu which was excellent; everything was prepared with attention to detail in preparation and presentation. The oxtail terrine with foie gras, the pave de cabillaud and the dessert were outstanding.

It is overpriced, which is okay, as long as you understand what exactly you are paying for. They hand write things on the menu and in our case not all menus said the same thing and the manager was no help and not friendly. Great setting, just decide if you mean to pay more for same quality food.

Very expensive, great service & location, lots of lovely local wine served by excellent sommeliers, food fine. But the place is being made into appartments

It makes me sad to have to write a review such as this for a restaurant which has an enviably stunning view of the Lake and a justifiably high reputation for cuisine – I note that pride in delivery of outstanding service is excluded from the website introduction, perhaps because the owners are so sure that the many serving staff...

go here for an amazing view of the lake. the water was so clear and pretty. an amazing backdrop. sadly expected the food to be much better. restaurant was quite busy. anything with foiegras here were excellent. then it was so so from then on. service was efficient and prompt. not everyone speaks english. and food was pricey.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in the Montreux region and the food never disappoints. The setting has to be one of the best waterside positions anywhere in the world and the service is always professional and friendly, this is a place where you feel very relaxed and comfortable.

Lovely warm day with equal welcome. Competent efficient staff. Al la Carte 58Sfr each entrée, a whopping 80 Sfr each for mains consisting of tasty small pieces lamb and some chickpeas and stuffed courgette flower (not haute cuisine!). Desserts satisfactory. Al-in-all an enjoyable experience, and so it should be at 504.50Sfr including half- bottle Armigne, bottle Humagne Rouge and two... More

Visited this lovely restaurant and enjoyed the menu "Saveurs". Expensive but delicious with excellent service. The tuna bon bon which was part of the amuse bouche was outstanding and set the scene for a wonderful meal. The paella revisited was unique and delightful. I had mentioned that it was my husband's birthday when I made the booking and he was... More
