Quaint restaurant, lovely service, the food is outstanding! The best prawn Risotto I have eaten anywhere in the world.

Overall high end place with good quality food. What distinguishes this restaurant is their tiramisu. I'm a picky fan of this desert and normally skeptical of restaurant versions. This one is definitely good. Whenever don't feel like making it myself or in the mode 'I want it here now', I go to Croix d'Ouchy

The restaurant certainly has an exceptional atmosphere with a very attentive and friendly staff. The food is traditionally cooked, but nevertheless with a very high quality and fresh ingredients. Definitely a place to return, when in Lausanne.

A friend of mine told me that this is one of the best restaurant in Lausanne and gave me a invitation. They have the "cafe" which is very homely and the restaurant elegant and a beautiful terrace which wasn't open in May. The food is excellent and the service swiss perfection. It seems that every single dish is freshly cooked... More

We had a dinner after a long an strenuous day in the office. On an unusual warm September evening the staff was attentive and made perfect recommendations for food and wine. We had the Carpaccio and as main course Osobucco and beef. All very well cooked and served at leisure. Enjoyable evening with nothing left to demand.

Dined here on a Wednesday evening, and admittedly for a Swiss restaurant, we arrived quite late...8:30pm. The table was nice, located outside under the trees. When we arrived, the restaurant was fairly busy, so it took a little while to get menus and then our order taken. When it arrived, the food was nicely prepared, and presented in an attractive...

Excellent food and service. The food is relatively fat, but so good! Never eaten artisanal tagliatelle like this before. Meat is excellent and well cooked, sauces are perfect, wine is very well chosen. A slight minus for the warmth of the main dining room, you may choose to go to the "café" for a less stifling, but a little bit... More

Make a point of going once or twice a year, just for the truffle risotto. Simply excellent. The beef carpaccio is nice as well. Good service, serviceable wine list. Parking is a challenge, but worth the effort.

Not disappointed by the quality of the food and the presentation. Main course is generous: I asked for the stroganoff beef and I must say that I almost couldn't eat everything. It is a bit pricey specially if you take some wine (recommended). The service could be a bit slow but worthy waiting for a well prepared food!
