“Too Much focus on the ambiance-”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

The food is decent but nothing earth shattering. A good place to go if you're out and about in the Flon on weekend evening...and the terrace on warm days is also pleasant for a coffee

“Expensive but well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

I went to this restaurant over 2 years ago with some work clients. We had already a menu since we were more than 25, but everything I had that night was absolutely delicious! You can expect to pay expensive for a dinner, but the place is well worth it specially for special occasions or simply gourmets. Plus, the restaurant has a niche lounge bar at the entrance where you can just enjoy a nice drink in a quite fashionable atmosphere.

“Avoid the bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2011

So we were 3 peoples we wait 40 mins for over salty food and the worth French fries ever, they made a special menu with only 5 dishes for lunch but they were incapable even to do it well, the service were really unprofessional but and look annoyed to be there , they were eating sushi with there hand and the sushi man too just behind the bar in front of all the clients ......
The deco of the bar might be nice during night because during day you can see the unfinished roof ...

“Excellent food, extremely slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

We had an offical dinner at this place which started with and hour-long welcome drink at the bar with some snacks served. Then after 1 hour we were allowed to enter and a 4-course-menu was served. Quality ingredients well prepared (food was my best ever Swiss official dinner), but we finished in total of 4 hours which was confusing comparing to the tight timing we had in Lausanne!

“Nice atmosphere and food but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

The food I ordered was the real ceased salad and the pork plate from the Thai menu. Both were hreally good and nicely cooked. The service though was a bit slow and we had to help ourselves with the wine something that does not make any sense to a restaurant that expensive.
