Dined at this place with my husband and 3 children and we all loved the food! The staff were extremely nice and welcoming. I tried the cheese fondue and it was great. The kids had pizza's and it all tastes great. The salad was delicious with an amazing dressing. The prices are very reasonable for the quantity of food offered.... More

Went here for lunch and it was an OK visit in general. It took long time before we had the opportunity to order, maybe 30 minutes, but once ordered the food arrived within 15 minutes. The waiter was helpful but, as mentioned, it took too long time. The food was OK, standard Swiss food and some pastas and pizzas. The... More

A nice location beside the lake. We called in for a morning drink break and were served promptly by a friendly waiter (Cafe not busy). Drinks were OK but expensive (4.10 Swiss Francs for an Apeltise and 4.00 for an average small - mostly foam- coffee). Table clean and chairs OK.

Enjoyed dinner at this brasserie. By the road, but looks out to the lake - good for spotting expensive sports cars! Food was good and the staff attentive and pleasant with very good English. It was relatively quiet, but we were looked after well and served quite quickly enough. Affordable option at the lake front in Lausanne, which tends to... More

Had Sunday lunch here on a sunny hot day. It was busy but the service was good and didn't wait long for my meal. The waiters speak a variety of languages, the menu was mainly Italian but there were other dishes. Menu written in Italian and English. Good quality at the high end of medium prices. There is a view... More

Had a simple and pleasant lunch in this restaurant. Enjoyed a good view of the lake and the delicious rib-eye steak, which came with three different sauced and lots of french fries. It should be a suitable place for a short break and smile food and drink during a walk along the lake, or before/after taking the metro to go... More

Our expectations were low as it was the only place we could find before we took the boat ...our low expectations were missed by a mile Birds fly around the terrace making mess on chairs (I had to change it myself) After 40 minutes no food arrived - several trips to the inside to find out what was going on...
