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!

This is the best Swiss meal I have ever had. First class ingredients (beautifully tender, mature steak, perfect salad and lovely wines) Discreet and very professional service. Tables well spaced and peaceful atmosphere (no music!) when I visited. Hope to come again!

I have been here twice now and both times my meals were spectacular. On this visit I had the lamb shank with tagliatelle. The lamb was flavoursome and beautifully tender. The tagliatelle is amazing - beautifully light with minimal flavouring, a perfect accompaniment to the rich lamb. For dessert I had the salted caramel crepes, which were exquisite - beautiful...

No contest, during my 1 week stay in Lausanne, I had the best food in Croix d'ouchy. Make sure you have your reservation as the restaurant is very popular. They don't have English menu, so you better have your Translator ready. The restaurant has a very unique serving method. They will serve some of the food in "Two Servings" particularly... More

La Croix d'Ouchy is the restaurant where all the local gourmets like to go. Listen in the joyous noise and you will hear either the strong local accent or a bit of true Italian which, for a restaurant blending Swiss and Italian cuisine with great success is an evidence of quality. Ideally located (nearby the Ouchy harbor), warm and cozy,... More

I have brought a party of 9 people, foreign colleagues actually. Our table had been given to another party and the waiter almost got upset with me. After 5 minutes a lady finally came and arranged a table for us. When came the time to choose the food we were told 'not more than 4 main course choice as kitchen... More
