Service is quite terrible. Not enough staff for too many people. Waitresses are not friendly at ALL! Waiting time is too long for the simple brunches they propose (50 minutes wait for cheese, ham and bread) and food do not come out all at once. I ordered a simple formula with pancakes and the pancakes literally arrived 40 minutes after... More

From time to time we go to Cafe Saint Pierre to have some tapas and cocktails. The food is good and the drinks are better! Usually the place is very crowded and the staff is swamped, but they're nice people - you get to experience this a lot more if the place isn't that full and they get to relax... More

The selections for sandwiches and salads was good for lunch. Wine prices were reasonable and wait staff very pleasant. Nice views of the lake too.

I dined here with a friend. The food was okay (the eggplant pate and the green salad were quite good). There are several vegetarian options. But don't expect anything spectacular. There is certainly a buzz, but also, don't expect much ambiance. For Lausanne, the prices are quite reasonable. I would probably go again - but not itching to do so!

Had brunch there with my friend - one of the few places that is open on a Sunday in Lausanne. Their breakfast is decent and the terrace area is great for a sunny day.

The view's great, and the location is lovely. However, even for Lausanne the place is rather overpriced and during the day the coffee can't compare with a home-made mocha or even an instant coffee. This is truly sad.

The food is good, the drinks as well. Love the ambiance of this place, always full of diverse people. Does get very busy on weekends!

Amazing concept and amazing tapas. This is a perfect place to eat with your friends. The only downside is that it is a bit noisy otherwise, I strongly recommend eating there!

We went a bit late as there wasn't anywhere else to go. The choices are fine but I honestly wasn't too impressed with the food. The service was slow, the waiters weren't too responsive and I wasn't too happy with the end results. It is worth a shot though.
