“Very good restaurant, quality and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Pleasant, the restaurant is very pretty without "fuss".
Very interesting menu card.
Beautiful presentation of dishes and cooking.
Service very professional without being intrusive. Besides the boss went twice to greet customers.
Fair price given the quality of food and food presentation.
We have prices for 2 people, 2 kirs, 2x foie gras with chutney and armagniac, 1x beef fillet with mustard accompanied by potato gratin, 1x scalpine veal with lemon and honey potato gratin, a creme brulee, 2 coffee and all accompanied by a Cornalin Valais AOC 2007, all for CHF 210.
In conclusion, a very good address.

Areas for improvement:
- Few parking place near the restaurant.

What a joke for a Michelin starred restaurant. Slow surly service and average food. Never again.

“Excellent old-style restaurant, with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

This restaurant was a real nice surprise. We went on a Friday evening without any reservation and in spite of the lots of guests, the waiter found us a place and he was very friendly to us. The food is jsut great, exactly what you expect from an old French-stlye brasserie. The service was always on time and paid attention to us during our stay. The fish is fabolous, highly recomended. The prices are quite high, as you can expect in a nice restaurant in Lausanne.

“Perfect place for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

I visited the restaurant due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We had a really good dinning experience. The service was perfect - everyone was friendly, explaining the French menu to us in English. The waiter refuse to recommend any dishes to us - because he said ALL the dishes were too good to miss.We had a wam salad ( grilled prawns) for entrees. It was really really good.

I had the crab spagetti and my friend ordered the truffle ravoli. Both were great. The only thing was that the dish came in 2 services - so half portion each time (so eachhalf portion is cooked at different timings so that the food can be kept fresh and warm!) . The half portion were quite big already so we were already stuffed at the end of the half portion. The waiter insisted on bringing the other half portion as it has already been prepared.

Overall, the food was really good, service was very pleasant. We'll definitely go there for dinner again. Maybe a portion to share next time.
