Excellent bistro

The menu du jour includes wonderful potages and very well cooked dishes. Excellent Fondues with bread and/or potatoes, maybe with a little bit too much wine. Crowded with locals. A very friendly atmosphere. Very reasonable prices.

My husband and I went there for dinner with another couple. 3 of us had the two beef tartares (one with truffle oil, the other normal). Disappointed: too much ketchup yuck, this was too imposant. The fourth of us had lamb and it eas not cooked enough, had to send it back to the kitchen. All the tables around us... More

Visited this restaurant because of the good reviews. We visited on a Friday evening and it was very busy and obviously popular with locals as many of the diners seemed to know each other. Rather over priced for the quality of the food. We had a Caesar salad and a moit-moite. With a bottle of water the bill was 49... More

I really like their fondue, their salads and their toasts (called croque). Reasonable prices for lake geneva. We visit it almost every week.

Traditional and typical Swiss restaurant, very popular among the locals. In the "bistro" style, this is probably one of the best restaurant around Vevey, nothing fancy, but their fondue is great. Great place to be with friends.

the food there is really good and very traditional, it's not really expensive and the service is really good, it makes you feel home. I would recommend it over all those fancy restaurants because it gives you a taste of Switzerland as it was before.

My husband had read other great reviews on here, so we decided to check it out. It is off the regular touristy streets and more in the industrial/housing area, and at first i wasn't too sure about this, since we were trying to find this place in the evening. But once we found it via GPS, it is a really... More
