Very nice way of having a kind of table-barbecue with real coal burning inside. Meat was good and sauces perfect.
Only issue is the smell and smoky atmosphere of the small dining room.

“Unique raw beef lovers restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Called from Canada to make a reservation as they don't have a website. When we arrived they couldn't find it, but fortunately it was a weeknight so they had room. They were very gracious and apologized. They were already treating us well,despite the lost reservation when we mentioned that a colleague of my husband's had recommended the restaurant. We hadn't realized just how much a regular he was and as soon as we mentioned this man's name we got the royal treatment. We started with a great mixed greens salad and ordered the specialty vodka laced flaming tartar and my portion was shaped into a heart. Really enjoyed the meal. Steak tartar is prepared differently in Switzerland than in the states, or at least differently from the restaurants we have eaten in. Here the the seasonings are mixed into the meat and it was delicious. The waiter took our picture of just us and with him and brought complimentary cognacs with our coffee. Ordered a light fruit dessert to split which was a nice finish to the meal. 168 Swiss francs, with a bottle of wine. No tipping in Lausanne. Dress in layers, the restaurant can be warm. Very casual. Also it is a bit out of the way, so you will need to take a taxi.

“Best beef in Lausanne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

This is the place where you can find the best "steak tartare" - raw beef in Lausanne area. Beef is premium quality and they prepare it in front of you.

“Service donwgraded everything good the place has.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

We went to this restaurant on the 5th of May. Ordered meat fondue, while all the rest were eaten raw meat. We liked the food very much, but one issue upset us a lot. Everyone, except us was served with bread & butter, - we got only bread. And only after I asked Q in French - butter appeared. That was really mean and it left a really unpleasant overall impression of the place. It's not about this bloody butter, but it showed an unequal relation towards their clients - which is disgusting. If not this - I would rate the place as Excellent one.

FYI: better to book in advance.

“Most traditional Beef Tartare.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

After studying 3.5 years in Hospitality School here in Switzerland. I finally find this place which serves Beef Tartare in the most traditional way.
They will mix it right in front of you and adjust the spice or acidity according to your preference. They have beef tartare with cognac.
I came with a few of my friends who are Swiss local and they highly recommend this as well.

Make sure you make a reservation, because they are always fully book.
