“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Absolutely excellent location, their burgers are some of the best I've ever tasted - better than Holy Cow and other similar restaurants around the leman. The location is superb, very modern and clean; the staff understands technology and the internet; and the burgers are made from fresh materials (the fries are absolutely awesome too). The staff is very friendly and food was serviced really fast. There's really nothing to improve on, everything is great! Although maybe in the future they should look into a bigger location, as this one can get a little packed at peak times.

Hello 238hy,

Thank you for your wonderful review !

We want to continue to offer the same impression on you and others in the future, you've clearly set the bar high for us and we'll do our best! (especially for the fast service, because that can be tough when we're packed sometimes)

I have to give the credit to my son about the technology and Internet side of things. Though we can all use it easily ourselves, he's the one who set it all up for us and keeps it up to date as well. He doesn't participate as much in the restaurant because he works in Geneva, so he was really happy to read your comment :)

We hope to see you again soon !

“Excellent Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We decided to escape the fog from Nyon and having read the reviews here took the mountain train to St.Cergue ....was easy to find ...also smaller than expected but ordered at bar and waited for table. The burgers were top quality and one guest ordered a "veggie burger" also reported as excellent . My only little complaint would be every order has to be pre-paid - so if you need another drink during the meal - it means getting up - going to order - pay- then they will serve at your table . In saying this we visited at quiet time so when busy could be an issue. Overall though the food quality is a winner.

Hello Colin,

We've been a little busy like everyone is at the end of last year but we did not forget your review.

First thank you for the nice comments on the burgers, we're glad that you enjoyed your meal with your friends :)

About our ordering process it is true that we request people to order and pay in advance.
In our view this can also be an advantage for both sides in some cases. For example no waiter or waitress that you need to desperately try to catch if the place is crowded to finally order what you want, and at the end of your meal you can simply leave when you want without having to once again try to catch a staff member in order to pay. We feel that despite the "semi-self service" aspect it brings, it also goes a little faster for everyone this way.

In the situation you mention though (getting extra drinks during the meal), if the restaurant isn't too crowded you can feel free to just call or wave and ask for drinks that we will bring to your table without asking you to come and pay right away, we already do this a lot for people who already started to eat.
In case nobody notices you or if the place is crowded and there is a line at the cash register, you may also just ask at the bar and indicate your table so that we can bring the drinks, we will most often do it right away.

We hope that these indications will make your next visit go smoother for you.

In the hope to see you again soon,

Best regards and a happy new year !

“And now with foie gras Christmas burger!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

I can only echo all the other rave reviews. The burgers here are simply sublime. Staff are charming and efficient. My son asks every other day"can we go to Rando Burger"! Despite its compact size, we have always been able to get a seat - there are bar stools around the central serving station and other diners have been kind enough to move around to squeeze us in when it's been full. We were there on the weekend and I was delighted to see the new addition to the menu - Christmas burger served (on a slate :)) with melt in the mouth foie gras, chutneys and don't forget the sparkly cocktail stick! It made me smile and was utterly delicious. Great selection of beers too. Hats off to this business - we shall keep driving up the mountain to visit you!!

“A real gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Following a recommendation from one of my husband's colleagues, I took some girlfriends who we're visiting from Zug to Rando's for lunch. It was smaller than I expected and was full when we ordered. However we managed to get a table before our food was served.

Each of us thought our meals were fantastic and a very welcome change to traditional Swiss restaurants. In addition, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming and the cost was a bargain.

Looking forward to returning soon.

Hi,

Thank you for your review :)

When we first opened we weren't sure how much room we would need for customers since we are located in a small mountain village, so yes, it can be a bit small when crowded. We recommend coming in the first hour after we open or in the last hour before we close to be almost certain to have a table free when you arrive.

We're glad that you enjoyed your meal and time at our restaurant and hope to see you again soon !
