I have long lived in Vevey and had not been to Denis Martin since he turned to molecular cuisine. I was not disappointed. We had close to 20 different specialties, all very original. I had my favorites with the pigeon, the shrimp and some of the stuffed/fried. The décor is very minimalistic. While the service wasvery friendly, I may have... More

As foodies, we delight in discovering daring , creative cuisine and Michelin restaurants. With this, Denis Martin was a dream pick for a valentine day date. We splurged for the Evolution menu at 380 CHF a person!!! As one would expect we eagerly anticipated being taken on a culinary journey - stimulating all the senses. Unfortunately while some of the...

Before you go you must know this is crazy expensive. You probably can't get out for less than $300 a person. But if you are willing to spend that, it's a great expeience. Some of the dishes were amazing. A few, especially the desserts, were less so, which if I was a Michelin reviewer, I would hold it against them,... More

Blink and you would not know that there was a restaurant there as the entrance is discreet and low key. We were met as we walked in the restaurant by two attentive staff and the entire evening's service could not have been better. The staff spoke French and English. Huge attention to detail. The decoration is a little quirky, which... More

I was very excited to go to this restaurant, I looked on the photos and read reviews and I was expecting the experience of a lifetime. We came to the restaurant and it was absolutely no atmosphere. Two tables where filled and no surrounding music. Decoration in not satisfactory, no candles on table, overall lack of decorations. Not up to... More

We celebrated our 10th anniversary at the restaurant with the "Show & Evolution" selection. The 1.5 hour demonstration by Chef Martin in the kitchen was very interesting and educational. What followed after that - a 20 course Swiss molecular gastronomy dinner - was simply amazing. We were highly impressed with the colours, taste and texture of the food, course after... More

It is undeniable that Mr Martin's cuisine is innovative and fascinating and so dinner in his restaurant is to be experienced as a safari of flavours and textures you are unlikely to come across anywhere else... a true culinary adventure. And as such, it proved to be a fun and delicious experience. The behind-the-scenes introduction to his "lab" prior to... More

We visited the Denis Martin restaurant on the occasion of my husband's birthday celebration. We had the "Show + Evolution dinner" option in Switzerland's only molecular gastronomy restaurant. The demonstration and presentation by the chef himself before the dinner was very interesting and informative and set the right tone for the food afterwards. The Evolution dinner was 20 courses and... More

We had a really great experience which started with a show explaining how the food is prepared followed by a 20 course meal. Its very interesting and I would definitely recommend this experience (more so for adults).
