Healthy and fresh food, casual atmosphere

Even though the theme is clearly "bio", healthy, fresh food, etc. you don't need to be a "bio extremist" to like this place. The quality is definitely there, price very reasonable and one feels quickly comfortable in the cosy, yet simple atmosphere.

Very good menu, prepared with fresh organic food cultivated by an education Institute closed to there. Strongly recommended to interested in veggi food, but meets are also included most of options. Local wines are also proposed.

I ordered a vegetarian main course with aubergine, grilled feta cheese etc. The waiter brought me a salad with grilled gambas. He then took back both orders and came back 20 minutes later with two new plates. AGAIN they had gotten the order wrong and I ended up eating a third dish, which was vegetarian but not what I ordered.... More

Service is excellent, quality as well and the price is more than correct for this standard. I was there even with my dog, and the staff was so kind to put us in a quite corner far from passage! They bring a cup of water as well. Warmly suggested

I love this place, it’s the only one I know in canton de Vaud which is so great for vegetarians, or if you are avoiding gluten or lactose. It’s 100% organic but they want to keep it affordable. You have a vast choice of very tasty dishes, created with a lot of fresh herbs and changing by season. I come... More

This place is excellent for organic, gluten-free and lactose-free food. A lot of their ingredients come from their own grounds. The menu is extensive and varied and the food has a lovely fresh, home-made quality to it. You really need a car to get here, as it is located a reasonable distance from the main road. The building itself is... More

I have eaten there many times for several years and was always satisfied. If you are looking for a place serving dishes you haven't eaten numerous times or even seek something vegetarian, Bois Genoud is the place to go. They are rather slow food, not for a quick bite.

This restaurant, in a nice old house outside the city, in the middle of the fields, is really worth the travel. We went for the menu, and everything was good and the ravioli filled with truffe were simply awesome! Portions are quite big, so just be careful not to order too much.. I can only recommend such a restaurant who... More

We went for dinner on Friday evening, the place was busy but not full. The food was expensive and bad. They forgot to put the sauce onto 3 salads, the fish soup was nothing special, the steaks ordered rare where done too much and the veal steak, chicken were dry due to overcooking. We complained, got another plate but the... More

If I do a copy/ paste from others review...... Oasis, good veggie, great Bio food.... I agree with them. A really nice surprise. True like says another review it is a bit out of the way but worth a thousand to do 10 minutes drive from city centre to go there. They grow their own bio veggies... and cook with... More
