“Understated Luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

Delicious fancy food served in a pleasant, low-key atmosphere. Delicate sauces and correct texture for meats and fish dishes. The complimentary "amuse bouche" and miniature post-desert cup perfectly flank the meal.

“dine out at chat noir, lausanne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2010

the place is a lausanne classic. it has been there for ages, located right near the theater catering to regulars who go there after the show. it is a small, cosy place on split levels, go for the lower level since the place is very well heated and on the upper level it gets too warm. the service is friendly for switzerland and efficient but could be more welcoming. the food is a treat: the best is the prime rib stuffed with foie gras, we went there several times ordering it over and over again. as desert go for the chocolate cake, a real treat as well

“Friendly service with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2009

One of the best options in Lausanne. The food is delicious and the service is more friendly than the average. The decoration is not outstanding and air conditioning is not existing at all! You need to reserve in advance!
