I've been traveling throughout Europe for a month and a half and this is the best dining experience I have had to date. The flavors a were fantastic, the presentation was beautiful, the ingredients were diverse, the portions were large and the waitstaff was lovely! I am a no-nonsense 'foodie' with a low tolerance for haute cuisine... The very thought... More

We can be called Regulars for this Restaurant even though the menu does not Change a lot. Nonetheless, it is always worth a trip. The interior is kept in light Wood and exhudes a comfortabe warmth and "Gemütlichkeit" as one would say in German. This time we tried the seasonal menu of game which we enjoyed a lot. The Chef...

You can't go wrong by eating there. Perfect for lunch or dinner. Wonderful food, great service and spectacular view. For me, best steak I've ever had, with that being said though, their appetizers are also delicious.

We went there several times. The last one was, as previously, a nice experience. The food was very good, it was the game season. The ambiance is typically swiss alpine style, all in wood, very nice and charming. Service is good.

Good choices in the menu. Sophisticated preparation and presentation with interesting use of herbs and spices perhaps linked to the long and exotic travelling experience of the owner. Be prepared to drive long and winding road before reaching this cozy restaurant in the peak.

I've lived in the region for 7 years and have tried many of the restaurants on recommendations from locals, and this one is in my top two. The other is Chalet de les Enfants above Lausanne by the way. Food here is extraordinary, local, fresh, and even with large serving sizes for such a foodie spot. I ride my bike... More

Come once... and you will call again, and again... This little gem at 1300m over sea level, high above the Montreux lake shore is a must do. During warm summer days like this early July, dining up there is a wonderful way to end your day. A very scenic and steep route will bring you there, accessible with any kind... More
