Good food but nothing fabulous while the prices are so high for what it is! The owner is quite rude with the clients. Really not a friendly place where you can could just relax having good

The privileged position that this restaurant occupies close to the Chateau is the only thing going for it. Shockingly poor service, amateur contemporary interior decor, high-end pricing all conspire to further dampen the experience. I'm afraid I can't comment on the food (nor the drink), as we departed roughly 40 minutes after arriving not having received either. This was immediately after the person `serving us` lost his cool when we complained after the shocking service. Incredibly as it may seem given the commotion he caused, there was no attempt by either the floor manager (on a break?), or any of the other waiting staff to correct the situation. Do they care? Judging by the reaction, I think not. Contemptuous? I would suggest avoiding this place as there are numerous better alternatives in the immediate vicinity (unless you need a place just to sit). They certain didn't deserve my money, and I don't think they deserve yours.

The Auberge du Château, located next to the Nyon Castle, is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. During the summer, the terrace is fantastic, as the views are outstanding, onto the castle, and onto the lake.

The food is excellent, though generally on the expensive side. The best feature is their pizzas, which are amazing. The choice is large (and of course you can order special requests), and the price for a pizza very correct. Together with the outstanding selection of wines (most of which Italian), suitable for small to large budgets, you will not be disappointed. For desert, try the Pizza Nutella.

The atmosphere is formal and nicer during the evening when the lighting creates more intimacy. During the day it is really more suitable for working lunches and the like. The service excellent, very friendly and what I like a lot is their resourcefulness in creating dishes for you on the spot, suggesting wines, etc. They are very helpful in discovering Italian dishes, including some not on the menu.

For me this is an excellent choice with the wife or with friends, and in the evenings.

Though season does not allow the terrace at the entry of Nyon's chateau to be open, the delicately designed interior has its own appeal. In style, the table setting is perfect for both a business, as well a more intimate lunch or dinner. The menu and its presentation is refreshing. Personnel can clearly explain menu. The food, though relatively pricy, is well-presented, straightforward and honest. The italian touch is clear and adventurous. I do recommend this restaurant, but it is noted that the price renders it on the too expensive site, especially in an environment of embedded with very good restaurants that do have a competitive pricing for what is on offer.
