“Great place! Vacation atmosphere guaranteed!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

A very nice place right by the new port of Lutry, great atmosphere, feels like vacation! Tapas, very good salads also help!
I think however it only takes cash, check before going!
No inside space so depends on weather... And when weather is good, reservations highly highly recommended!

“Unexpected great little restaurant”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We trained to Lausanne and walked downhill to Ouchy with the idea of walking along the promenade to Lutry, a route suggested by Rick Steeves; it's a great walk along Lake Leman. We sorta stumbled on La Terrasse and to be honest we had serious doubts about the establishment. We did get a table, which bordered one route of dishes to be delivered to the numerous patrons. After determining that we were very limited in our French, a waitperson fluent in Engiish appeared at our table to take care of us. It is a very informal, busy place, but the food was just terrific, the atmosphere was great, and he location practically on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Rick Steeves said one could return to Lausanne by rail, so by climbing in an uphill direction on a very warm sunny day, we located the rail station and returned to Lausanne.

Isn't it great to stumble on places like this----practically magic.

“A gem !”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A small but cosy place. The atmosphere was very nice, a spanish band play during our evening meal. It was not too loud, just perfect to create a nice mood. The food was very good but classic, nothing fancy in this place. The wine choice is well made with a choice of local and foreign wines. The terrace is gorgeous and the view on the lake is priceless.

The staff are very reliable and friendly even when it's crowded. I advice you to book the table and take some cash, with you you cannot pay by credit card.

“Local Atmosphere and a Beautiful View”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Overall, La Terrasse is a great place to hang out, have a drink with locals, and look out onto beautiful Lake Geneva. The pizza was delicious, and apparently homemade, as was the fish from the lake. The wine was also the local wine from the regional which was nice to try. I would definitly recommend, and it a very casual relaxed experience. Something to note though- THEY DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. It was not any real issue (and they accept Francs, US Dollars, Euros, Rupies) but we did have to run back to our hotel to get cash for dinner. Something we would have liked to know before going. Service was okay, nothing over the top but nothing bad either. Also, a more inexpensive place to eat in Lutry.
