Visited for dinner on an evening in February, few people in streets and no one dining in restaurant when we arrived. Ordered fish dishes both of which were excellent. Proprietor served us with extra salads and a desert on a complimentary basis, both delicious. Reasonable selection of House wine in half litre bottles. Service good. All reasonably priced. A great little restaurant that we would have no hesitation in recommending.

As someone who travels on their own a lot one of my pet peeves is when you get tucked away in a corner as if they are trying to hide you. That is exactly what happened here. However, service was attentive, which is not always the case when that happens. Food was great. The wine list was surprisingly nice. The overall vibe was a cross between a bar and a restaurant. On a night when not too many places seemed to be open this ended up being a surprisingly good choice, seating notwithstanding.

We had walked by the Brasserie many time and it was a good decision today to go in for lunch. Though it was busy and is about as central as a place can be in Lausanne, we were given personal attention and it felt as if we were in a community "local" unique to Lausanne. The local wine selection was good and reasonably priced, as was the lunch time menu. We had the emincé de beau Zurichois and mussels and fries. Tasty, well prepared and served well. Highly recommended!

Went without a reservation on a weekday evening. There were no tables available. All were reserved or occupied. The friendly wait staff managed to fit us in and so we had our dinner. We could not speak a word of their language but managed to order 3 mains: perches meunieres, escalopes citron and emince zurichoise. The perch was fresh and lightly grilled and tasted good. The meat dish were tender and tasty. There were locals in the restaurant having their meals which means it should be reasonably priced and authentic.

A friend and I were wandering Lausanne on our first night in the city when we stumbled across this little brasserie in a side street. While we were peering at the menu, a local patron came out for a smoke break and told us in French, "It's really good here, really good - you should look at the daily specials. They're all served with salad, sides, they're very good."

We decided that was endorsement enough, and went inside to find a cosy restaurant with friendly staff. The food was very reasonably priced compared to other places we'd walked past, and they had English menus on request, although the daily specials were only listed in French. We both ended up ordering specials - I had salmon with rice and vegetables, my friend had terrine with salad - and both were delicious.

From what we could tell this is very much a local haunt; on this Monday night we were the only ones not speaking French the whole time we were there. (I relied on broken high school French to communicate, but the staff also knew enough English to manage with non-French-speakers.)

Definitely recommended if you're looking for sensibly-priced local food in a friendly atmosphere.
