Description: An especially laid-back slice of luxury, directly inspired by the atmosphere of the legendary music festival, and decorated with a plethora of Claude Nobs memorabilia. The generous cuisine, combined with a selection of the region's best wines and irresistibly-named aperitifs, make it the perfect venue to share an informal moment enveloped by that special festival feel. Pulsing to the jazz rhythms of the greatest concerts, immersed in surroundings filled with emotion - or indeed sitting at the Chef's table - the Montreux Jazz Cafe embodies the event's inimitable vibe as it reverberates out along the Riviera - and echoes endlessly across the planet, as it has done ever since 1967. Please, note that pets are not allowed at the Montreux Jazz Cafe.

Each day of the week, there is a different set lunch. It is great value. The service is the best in town and the food is excellent. The service is so good, you forget you are in Switzerland where - let's be honest - across the country it's difficult to find someone smiling, let alone wanting to help you, other than relieve you are your money with outrageous prices. This is my top recommendation for consistency of service and quality of food at a reasonable price (for the set lunch only!)

The ambience is excellent, with very contemporary interiors. The service is excellent and the choices in their menu is very balanced. Of course when you are at Lake Geneva, the fish is your best bet. The Perch fillet is really good. Another good dish is their Spring Chicken with a mouth watering sauce. The main course was so filling that we gave their desserts a miss. You can also enjoy live music of Jazz & unplugged music. A memorable fine dining experience.

The service in this restaurant is fantastic and the food was incredible. The restaurant is adjacent to the lounge and the jazz music is great to listen to while you are dining.

Connected to Funky Claude's Bar by a cut through, it lets you hear the jazz performers in there while you have your meal in a quieter setting. Inside and outside dining. Nice menu selections. My wife and I split a Caesar Salad with shrimp to start. Should have split the BB King burger as it is too big for a normal human being. Very nice sauce. Really restful atmosphere compared to some of the craziness going on outside during the Jazz Festival. Good selection of wines. Ask for a recommendation from the manager for a Swiss wine as they have some world class choices from just down the road that are not usually available outside Switzerland. Friendly staff. Really fills up after 7:30pm. Not cheap, but OK for Switzerland. Part of the Fairmont complex. One of the places on the "To Do" list in Montreux.
