Back there after years! And quality is still great! We have enjoyed the tasting menu and appreciated to be guided for some interesting wine choice. The service was friendly and even making effort for English for my partner!

The restaurant was beautiful and has a romantic, upscale ambience without being stuffy. Food was excellent, from starters, main course and dessert. Service was superb, and we were so lucky that the chef came out and took photos with us. The experience was memorable.

This restaurant is a gem - difficult to find, but worth a visit. The restaurant is located on the fifth floor in a pretty anonymous building in the center of Lausanne. The place is very small and very cozy. Food is always of very high...More

This restaurant is somewhat hard to find at the top level of an inconspicuous building. But once found .. you will enjoy this wonderful kitchen.

Le Cinq is a fine restaurant (on the fifth floor - hence the name) in the center of Lausanne. The daily specials are varied and reflect in price the elevated reputation of the restaurant. A great deal is the weekly business luncheon, two excellent courses...More
