The couple who own this restaurant are very welcoming! The food was delicious, and all of the staff are superbly trained. We stumbled on the place while walking through the city, and we're so glad we did.

We enjoyed a fine group dinner at this restaurant as part of our stay in Lausanne. We found the meal delicious and the waiters attentive. We assume this would also be true of orders off the menu.

Even the chef came out to eat (we were the last service at lunch) The best Omble Chevalier so far: this was en vapeur ( steamed) so that is the way to cook it from now on A good lunch

Enjoyed my meal here. Had the Perch and my friend, the filet de boeuf. Pleasant staff and surroundings. Swiss pricing but pretty good value.
