Right in the middle of the touristy centre of Ouchy, the façade of this restaurant is so small you can easily pass it by without noticing - even friends who have lived here for decades were surprised when I took them there. Cosy decor out...More

The restaurant has a lovely setting by the lake. Small tables, old set up indoors. Minimal English. Food wasn't up to standard, very very salty!! Made a mistake with our order and didn't serve despite telling them again we hadn't been served. After that, they...More
