“Excellent sunday lunch”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

In a sad rainy day the Cheval Blanc was a perfect solution!The food is excellent, if only a bit pricey (but average for Switzerland). Perfect salad with fresh ingredients, perfectly well cooked "filet de perche" with homemade fries. The dessert "fondant au chocolat" was simply divine and the presentation of each dish was very nice. Also to note, excellent Espresso, a true suprise for an Italian!I honestly do not understand the coments about the bad service. The waiter was very nice and he brought us the dishes with normal speed. 136CHF for two people for two filet the perche (salad and fries), two glasses of wine, water, truly fantastic desert, and two espressos. I'd say average price for an area where a simple pizza costs around 22CHF.

“Good food, service rather average”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The food is excellent, but the way in which the owners (who also serve) answer any question you might have, is way beyond imagination. We went there once and will never ever return.

“very good and regular”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

A pleasant bistro. Charming service, nice decor and a cute terrace. In addition, if the chef comes out of the kitchen, a nice smile.
Excellent mixed salad, filets de perche as they should be and perfect fries.

And very regular over the years.

“Never again”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Le Cheval Blanc is one of the few establishments to which I’ll never return. Mind you, the food was good, the décor nice… but the service was absolutely appalling. It was so bad that someone with the authority should go and close the place down. It starts with the owner who actively dislikes you and objects that you grace his restaurant. It continues with the slow, arrogant service (even though the restaurant was practically empty) and ends with the outrageous price.
