“Perfect romantic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Wow, what a gorgeous restaurant. Stunning views over lake Geneva, excellent service and yummy food.
We where even given a complimentary glass of champagne as it was our Wedding Anniversary.
Thankyou so much for looking after us and ensuring we had a memorable evening.

“The view is key!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

ITs a great restaurant, went on a daily basis while i stayed in Montreux. I strongly recommend their steak tartare (moutarde not truffe). The waiters are young, friendly and professional!

“This is really lovely and easy to do as a lunchtime trip from Geneva or Laussanne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

I looked round for some faults as the hotel is only rated 4 star but I really couldn't find any so I guess the other star is just floating about in the ether somewhere. First of all, it is incredibly easy to get to as its location is right opposite the railway station.. The room with its fantastic views of the lake is gorgeous and the staff were ultra-sweet and accomodating. I started with asparagus soup (very in season)with a pistaccio cream garnish -hum, hum, two of my favorite tastes. Then sea bass on a wonderfully unctious bed of crushed potato with white truffle oil and then a truly weird sounding but wonderfully tasting dessert...meringue, cream and carrot juice! On the nearby cocktail lounge veranda preened and strutted most of Montreux,s young beauties. Who could ask for anything more?

“Amazing view, ecxellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011 via mobile

Amont the nicest views on the entire Lake Geneva area. The hôtel Swiss Majestic where the restaurant is located is just in front of the railway station of Montreux. The restaurant is situated in a véranda on the terrasse above and away from the noise of the city. The food is excellent. I adored the Foie Gras poêlé served with a fine cherry sauce. One of the best adresses in Montreux and in the whole region, gorgeous on a warm summer night; nice for the rest of the year. You should make a réservation.

“A Wonderful Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

The location on Lake Geneva with the view of the Lake and The Alps, alone, gets this place a high rating.

That said, the food experience was premium.

The complimentary shaved meat for an appetizer was wonderfully tasty and light.

The draft beer was served just right.

The Champagne was premium.

Regarding the dishes we had:

The Lamb Spare Ribs is one the best meals on the planet.

The Special Pasta Dish was perfectly prepared and light.

The Heart of fillet of beef studded with chorizo Ireland, was exquisite.

The Fillet of turbot with fresh butter, sautéed asparagus and mashed potatoes was complex but sweet and so good.

The deserts were all excellent.

The service was just about perfect and unpretentious.

And did I mention the perfect view of the lake and the mountains? Yes I did, but still worth mentioning again.

It is expen$ive. But worth the memories and the terrific food.

Give this restaurant the Michelin Stars or Mobil Travel Guide Award, or AAA ratings or whatever. It deserves them all.
