“Looking for a place opened late at night after your cinema ?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

In Lausanne there are a few places that will serve you food & drinks after the last cinema session. But they are that common.
One of my all times favorites is "la brasserie du Château" it brews its own beer and it is not bad at all (my preference is "la rousse" or the ginger beer). It is more a pub than a restaurant and is very crowded and noisy most of the time, but if you are patient, you will eventually find a spot and even make new acquaintances on the way.
The atmosphere is young and lively, definitely not a place for quiet conversations, but enjoyable all the same.
The best thiong with this place is that it cooks some foccacias and pizzas until closing time, so there is always something to eat. They make one of the finest "quatre fromages" pizzas I know in Lausanne, so if "light" is not part of your vocabulary, try it !
Nice place for an after work too, it is quieter then and nice to gather with collegues and share a pizza with your beers, you can order your pizza pre-sliced to make it easier.
A place to keep in your list of possibilities whenever you happen to be in Lausanne late at night and looking for a bite and some atmosphere.

“Good beer, bad food...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is a brewer's place.. And whether it is intended or not, the only thing worth it over there is the beer (which is quite good)

However the pizza are tasteless,, sorry to say that.. It might be okay to eat one of them late at night night, when you are totally wasted, because the pizza overflows with fat, oily cheese that can pump out your alcohol.

In short: place to grab a local beer, but avoid the food...

good place to go with colleagues. the ginger beer has been great sometimes when i've been and only so-so other times. more of a bar than a restaurant.

“Good beer, good pizza, reasonable price, nice stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Brasserie du chateau is a place to drink beer or other drinks. It is mostly a bar, it is not a restaurant. but they has pizzas(12-20 CHF), salads and sandwiches in a reasonable price and good quality. They have their own beer. Dont forget to ask them about their beer of the month(La bier du mois). The beer may seem a little expensive (5 CHF for little glass , 8 CHF for large).
