By far one of the most established local nightlife spots in town. Watch your game, drink your beer at the bar, meet people or get a table and chat the night away. If you are lucky, you may find a table outside front of the bar and besides your beer you can also indulge in people watching. The service is... More

Have chosen the place for lunch because it is close to my office and it looks always crowded (I.e. Popular). Unfortunately it also means that it is hardly possible to talk inside. I went with my mother in low and she was clearly uncomfortable. Apart that, I appreciated quality of service and food and size of plate. Goat cheese salad... More

I like the drinks in Etoile Blanche, the atmosphere - especially outside in hot summer days, with lots of people and fun, the food is good too! I always have good memories of this place, and I go back every now and then, one of the most welcoming places in Lausanne I'd say!

Excellent pub, packed with people with a young and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Burgers are great and the menu is not huge but good, tasty and with great options.

The place is well decorated and has plenty of seats for lunch. The service was a little slow but the plate was very nicely presented and the burger was very good. Also, the fries were great!

This is one of my favorite bars :) I love the decontracted atmosphere, the servers are really nice & they make great GINs!!! So many to chose from; even if you're not a fan of GIN you'll find one that makes your tongue sing. Thu, Fri and weekends can be pretty busy in the evening but if you don't mind... More

I have been here several times in the morning, midday and evening. The service is friendly and fast. The restaurant has big glass windows, which let a lot of light in in the morning, and the ambiance is informal, which is perfect for Sunday brunch. The food is DELICIOUS it comes in big portions and I personally love the way... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, busy but not too loud and the food was really decent. Menu simple and the food tasty. Drinks good. Not really a romantic style place but friendly and very enjoyable and very popular
