Took my wife and kids for my 45th birthday. I read the other reviews on TA which weren't very good but booked anyway. The food lacked of taste and the service was awkward and clumsy. My wife ordered hummus. It was clearly off and tasted bad. We complained and the waitress took it back to the chef. She returned to... More

Was in Lausanne with my family on a business trip and was highly recommended to visit this restaurant. What a magnificent place. The surrondings are just spectacular and food cant be falted. In relation to the service. Waw. Just one of the best if not the best service that we ever got. They made such an effort to understand our... More

Even though the theme is clearly "bio", healthy, fresh food, etc. you don't need to be a "bio extremist" to like this place. The quality is definitely there, price very reasonable and one feels quickly comfortable in the cosy, yet simple atmosphere.

I ordered a vegetarian main course with aubergine, grilled feta cheese etc. The waiter brought me a salad with grilled gambas. He then took back both orders and came back 20 minutes later with two new plates. AGAIN they had gotten the order wrong and I ended up eating a third dish, which was vegetarian but not what I ordered.... More

Service is excellent, quality as well and the price is more than correct for this standard. I was there even with my dog, and the staff was so kind to put us in a quite corner far from passage! They bring a cup of water as well. Warmly suggested

I love this place, it’s the only one I know in canton de Vaud which is so great for vegetarians, or if you are avoiding gluten or lactose. It’s 100% organic but they want to keep it affordable. You have a vast choice of very tasty dishes, created with a lot of fresh herbs and changing by season. I come... More

This place is excellent for organic, gluten-free and lactose-free food. A lot of their ingredients come from their own grounds. The menu is extensive and varied and the food has a lovely fresh, home-made quality to it. You really need a car to get here, as it is located a reasonable distance from the main road. The building itself is... More

I have eaten there many times for several years and was always satisfied. If you are looking for a place serving dishes you haven't eaten numerous times or even seek something vegetarian, Bois Genoud is the place to go. They are rather slow food, not for a quick bite.
