“Groovy bar in old town”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

This is my favorite place to go in Nyon. Its got outside tables, a bar inside and back room with couches etc.. Its the kind of place to go with a friend for a few very good wines and aperitifs. Ive had the food a few times and its simple and very good quality, for example the salmon tartare is great.

“Ok for a drink but not more”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Nice place if you want to go for a relaxed drink, but don’t expect more. Went there several time to do so, and the location is nice-in the heart of old Nyon, no traffic, but a lot of pedestrian life. Lounge area very cosy and relaxing.
Went there once for food: maybe it’s just the tapas and the other food is great, but I was really not impressed by the quality-plain, tasteless, greasy.
And the service was really bad. No smile, forgetting orders, reacting rather unfriendly if you reminded them after 20 minutes….

Ok for a drink but that’s it

“A fantastic restaurant in Nyon”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was fantastic, the food and atmosphere was great. Dined with friends who have just moved to Nyon and can see why this is one of their favourites.

“Wonderful terrace and bar”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Summertime, this place it tops! Wonderful terrace, nice breeze, good drinks/wines and greta finger foods. The tartar, both salmon and beef, are very fresh and delish!

The owner is always friendly and always has the right recommendation for your taste buds. He reads your mind!

If it is a little chilly outside, then inside is a cozy universe to find yourself in. From private seatings to the bar, the establishment has made sure that the lounge atmosphere does not extend into the bar scene and vice versa. I like!

Cheers to Pat (The Owner)
