Cafe/bar type restaurant, but we were glad we booked as all tables were full. We enjoyed cooking our slices of steak on our table barbecue - the meat was succulent and tender. An enjoyable night.

This was one of the two best steaks I have ever eaten in my life. Wow. Absolutely superb. Simply served with fries, vegetables and a salad to start. A small, well run, "family-style" restaurant. Expect a warm welcome by all the staff and great food....More

Been going here for years as I visit a friend annually in Lausanne, It never disappoints and the formula remains the same. We always eat their filet steak and chips and it always delicious.

Every time I go to Lausanne, I have a dinner here. It is one of the best places and you must taste the Tartar Steak

We arrived with colleagues, 7 in total, without reservation, and we were attended in incredible way. Dedicated assistance. Beefs were amazing. Not cheap but in average for swiss reallity.

Plenty of locals eat here. Make a reservation. Simple atmosphere – café style dining. Food very well prepared and lots of it. If you like meat – this is meat central.

I have had the Tartare and it was great. This time they had Entrecôte for the lunch menu and it was great as expected. And the chef comes out at the end to make sure everything was great...
