We have dined at La Rouvenaz many times over the years. Most recently, we dined there on June 30...the day after Elton John played the Montreux Jax Festival! The food and atmosphere were terrific as always. What made this time so special was the terrific waiter, Paulo! Our visit was during the heat wave over most of Europe but particularly, Montreux. Paulo made up for the very hot restaurant with his smiling and upbeat personality and great wine and food recommendations. I am a former professor in a Swiss hotel school and I can honestly say that Paulo is as well trained as any student that I taught. We will be back to La Rouvenaz anytime we’re in Montreux...and we will request this gentleman to be our server! Thanks, Paulo!

Bit of an institution. We rocked up very late, post a concert and they were super.

Some great pizzas.

Apparently this place is popular year round.

It is very near the boat station at the left hand end of Montreux (looking out to lake)

It is in a central position opposite the Marché and could be complacent as footfall will be great - but it isn’t
It is busy and buzzy, so service can feel a bit strained, but it is friendly and efficient; but might be interesting if under time pressure yourself, we weren’t and enjoyed a leisurely dinner distracted by people watching from a slightly elevated position over the pavement.
Food was good, generous portions of interesting flavours nicely presented. Wines were good with a surprisingly wide list.
Prices are ok for the town and Switzerland
All in all worth making the effort to book to avoid disappointment
