Had a nice lunch with a group of people. Two day dishes to choose from. Rapidly served together with a fresh salad. Nice personnel.

Serve politely, quickly. Not very clean tables. The food is simple, but a little more expensive. Pour too much oil. Bring a dish a little cold.

The location of the restaurant is great, right on the water. Unfortunately, that is pretty much all that was good about the restaurant. Both myself and the person I was with felt our meals were not good at all, quite flavorless. Considering how much everything on the menu is, it was very disappointing to waste so much money on bad...

We used to like this place but we no longer do. As a starter tapas item we ordered ( mentioned aubergine in the title) was disgusting. Breading smelled like fried fish, the so called ham inside had grey color as well as soggy uncooked aubergine. Two small pieces of it cost about 7 chf. But I wouldn't eat it for... More

We had dinner here last night and it seemed like a lovely restaurant and the food was tasty but unfortunately my husband and I both got sick and were up all night in our hotel bathroom after we ate the pizza we had ordered. Our son ate a different dish so we narrowed it down to the pizza. It's ruined... More

Le Carrousel de Vidy offers nice view and good food, the portions are fulfilling and so far the dishes I've tasted have been satisfactory. The service has been good, too. We've had only positive experiences here, it's not an extraordinary place but it's usually crowded and nice to spend some time, have some drink and a bite to eat.

I have been here several times (never by my own choice) during work since we work down the street. The location is great and there aren't many other options nearby. Every time I go here, I am reminded by I do not like this place. First of all, you cannot order tap water (un carafe d'eau) for free like at... More

A restaurant with terrace and view on the port, the lake and the mountains, far from the road, easy to access by walk or by car (parking nearby) is great. A place you would like to stop for a meal or just a drink when you walk along the lake... but the menu, the food are so so... and the... More

The location is great: easy parking and prime view on the lake with the backdrop of the mountains. That may be why the owners think that customers will be coming back no matter the service, but I will honestly think twice before going there again. This was supposed to be a special occasion for a large group so we called... More
