“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This restuarant is famous for a reason. The food is fantastic, the service is great and homey, and the ambiance is just right. While it's true that the restaurant is always quite busy, I have never had a problem getting a reservation for brunch or dinner. The reservation is the key because without it could be very difficult to get a table.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

The Café de Grancy is that kind of place that doesn't make you feel at all like you're in Lausanne. It's young, quirky and stylish. Many have attempted that in Lausanne but have always failed. But the CDG definitely succeeded at that. The staff is very nice, the food is good, the atmosphere is very nice, the prices aren't astronomical. What more to ask for?
I would definitely recommend it over and over again. Great choice for Lausanne!

“May just be my favourite restaurant in Switzerland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The food is amazing, complex yet simple, if that makes sense. Really good dishes, with a wonderful mix of flavours. The gazpacho was some of the best I have ever had, the cassolet of chanterelles was amazing, and so the meal went. Each dish was delicious! The terrace is cozy, the service is very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back, many times over!

“Go here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

A local reserved a table and took me to this restaurant. It was really crowded, despite being a Tuesday night. The food was very good, much better than I expected, and the menu adapted to the season. The fresh pasta was amazing, and there are menu items that are twists on traditional swiss dishes but made lighter and easier to eat on a hot day.
It is not as cheap as the cheapest restaurants in Lausanne but not overly expensive. The location is also atmospheric and you can sit outside, too. Highy recommended.
