I ate at Grancy twice during my weekend trip to Lausanne and enjoyed it each time. The food and the service are very good. All the ingredients are sourced locally, fresh and delicious. It is not fine dining, but it is really satisfying & good food! Highly recommended!!

Very busy café, we had already tried to eat here on Friday evening but it was full. Went for Sunday lunch and were surprised to find a great brunch menu. Lucky to get a table, although by 2pm it was quietening down a little. Specialty beers, homemade iced tea. Lots of books and games to keep you amused. Quirky furnishings,... More

This cafe makes a good choice for a central place to meet either for breakfast or an evening meal. Also easy five minute walk from Lausanne central station

This is the kind of restaurant that I call unique. A very special setting, the furniture was probably standing in a bourgeois living room in the 50ies. A bookshelf full of books, take one .... bring one, no need, but basically this is how the shelf remains full. I was having dinner on the terrasse, excellent food, good quality, good... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends who live in Lausanne and it lived up to expectations. We ate outside but the interior lay out and decor were special. There were five of us present and we all chose different meals. We were all delighted with our selections. The quality was first class and each meal was well presented. Service was... More

Always an easy choice. Good location just below the train station. Great for a drink and sharing tapas sized portions. Also easy choice for standard dinner - Swiss / french options and salads. Staff are friendly. Downside: with not many places on Sunday's - and the central location, it gets busy.

We stumbled on this place in a storm and were glad we had. Some reviewers have said service was poor, we found it excellent from everyone we encountered. Highly recommend the code with black rice. Amazing. And the chicken with chanterelles and tomatoes similarly fabulous. V happy.
