“Nice food - lovely terrasse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

I have had the pleasure to eat here a few times. Not a huge choice on the lunch menu but everything is very well made and tasty. Beautiful outdoor seating.

“very special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

A great meal, surprise menu after being asked if there are some things that you cannot eat. A very good mix of tastes.

“Sad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

For reasons unknown this restaurant has declined over the past months.
The cooking is alright and the staff agreeable but the service is awful which always particularly annoying at lunch time when people have other things to do in the afternoon.
I presume they must have some problem in the kitchen for one to have to wait so long.

“Nice food in interesting surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

This pleasing little restaurant used to be run by the ex-manager of the Maître Jacques at Nyon. I learned the other day that he has been ousted by his ex wife who has taken the business over. I hadn't eaten here for a couple of years, but it still offers excellent food, though slightly pretentiously served to my taste. If the food is excellent, the quality of the service is not quite - the staff are perfectly friendly but rather amateur. Other postings complain of a long wait, but we were lucky this time: the time before it was very long indeed.

The best thing about the Relais de l'aérodrome is the location, next to the grass runway of a tiny aerodrome, where the biggest plane you will see is a two-seater. It's pleasant to see two or three take-offs and landings, for that's about as much as you'll get over the course of an average meal. Now that's sitting outside, when it's nice and sunny. In the winter, or the rain, I wouldn't go here: it's really not worthwhile to be in the rather gloomy interior just for the food, albeit very good.

“Downsizing hurts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Please accept my condolences if you missed this restaurant. It WAS outstanding. It didn't make any money being outstanding, so it's been re-zeroed as a more casual bistro. Gone are the dreamy fantasy-dishes. It's now an average bistro in a very odd location. R.I.P.
