“Nice place good food but unbelievable crowded”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

It is a famous place for Sunday branch, so I did book a table for 4persons 3dayd in advance to make sure no disappointment for no seat. Restaurant told us we can stay fm 10am to 12noon time because apparently there are so many reservations.

I have to say the food is good, all of them has good presentation. Pancake and omelet are very delicious, but waiting time for food is long! The waiter is very helpful, but the waitress who also serve our table keep porker face all the time.

Till 11clock, the restaurant already fully full,it is so crowded, people sitting there one next to the other. It is obviously quite noisy as well.

“Nice food and good service”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Second time at this restaurant. Always crowded, but still charming service. Good creative food, and great local wine list. And I like that you can order a mini dessert

“It is just ok”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I have been to this place 2 times and I have difficulties understanding its popularity in Lausanne. It is always fully booked. Still it is just average. Leaving the restaurant you will smell of kitchen. The tables are cramped to each other, the menu is not very big and lack any sort of innovation. The food is ok, good but nothing exceptional. Deserts are nice.

“Great food”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

It's a good idea to book a table for dinner as the waiting can be long. Food is great, especially the salad with smoked duck beast and fole gra. Excellent swiss wine. Lovely ambience. A must to visit.
