Nice location overlooking like Geneva. Service was friendly but not competent. Ordered a bottle of red wine, but apparently they run out of that one. Ordered a different one and the waiter delivered a different year, claiming it was better. Anyone who buys wine knows that prices are not the same for a 2011 bottle and 2012 bottle. Followed up...

Very nice place to have lunch or perhaps dinner. Fantastic view of the surrounding area, mountains, Lake Geneve and nature. I have made many pictures of course... The service was classy and the menu-du-jour was presented per dish. Food was delicious. We were with a group of people and even serving the dishes on time, did not take that much... More

Come here to eat some excellent and very original Swiss Fondue with a view of Lake Geneva and Vevey. If you're coming up from Vevey do not take the. Ar but instead the little train! Saves time and means that you can have more Schnaps

Excellent Suisse menu with a stunning view. In summer always go for the terrace! U are literally above the clouds. Out of my favorites I would recomend the steak tartar, rosti with cheese and egg and hot stone steak)))

We loved this restaurant during our stay at Le Mirador. The food was quite good (perfect for trying traditional Swiss dishes) and we loved the adorable "living room" feel around the fireplace. Prices were quite reasonable (at least within Switzerland - still on the more expensive side by American standards) and although the English-language service was a bit hit or... More
