A popular locals' choice

One of our favourites, and a consistent choice of a lot of the other locals we know. It can seem a bit strange the first time you walk in - slightly stilted and a bit formal - but the service is good, the food is first-rate with generous portions carefully prepared, and it's good value for money... read more

I very skeptically walked into this place - somehow doubting it would offer anything flavourful, let alone abundant, and definitely not a warm atmosphere. I've passed it a thousand times - and had not idea what I was passing up! Indeed the ambience is not all that warm, one feels you are in a hotel's restaurant...stiff chairs, bright lights, crisp...

My husband and I decided that we needed a tete a tete dinner away from kids and where we could enjoy a nice surrounding and good food foreign evening. We had hear from colleagues and friends of the Lodge that is across the street from my office and we decided to have a go at it. Even though the staff... More

I went there for dinner and was a bit disappointed. I wanted to go for quite some time and unfortunately it did not deliver. The restaurant smelled a bit of humidity, service was slow and food was okay at best. I ordered lamb and the piece I got was mostly fat hanging on a bone. After reading the other reviews... More

I was at Le Lodge recently for a conference. The second day included lunch and it was well worth the wait. The three-course meal was excellent, quick, and well-served. I'll go back for lunch if I have a chance.

We ate at Le Lodge and enjoyed it so much that we came back and ate there again a week later. Here are the very nice features: An excellent value fixed price menu. Really quality food, especially the spectacular desserts. Attentive and very friendly owner and staff. All things considered, I will go back there again next time I'm in... More

I ordered food from this restaurant several times while at the lodge. The food is good, light choices such as salads are available and prices at fair.

I love the 3 course french "table d'hôte" - it permits me to eat like a king which I would not often do if ordering courses separately. The three course menu offers around 6 options each for appetizer, main course, and dessert for 9500 (update - previously this was 8500). I had the crustiante de chèvre (goat cheese salad) and...

Apparently the chef has changed so the great reputation the restaurant had is outdated! The staff were great and very nice, but the food was not good at all, with a tiny portion for me and a huge one for my friend! I recommend waiting for a new chef before going there.
