I had a brunch on Sunday. The food was very good, even if I expected bigger plates. The guys working there are extremely kind and the place is also great; I would suggest it for a Sunday's brunch.

Paella are nice, cool atmosphere, good food. Normal price for Lausanne. You should make a reservation to be sure you will have a table.

Nice laid bacs place with great dishes. The place si often crowded, so it's better if you can book a table in advance. On sunday, it's a great place to brunch. Moreover, it's near the station.

I had dinner here - duck with salad and it was delicious. Fortunately I got the last free table and didn't have to wait as others. The pub is always full, you might need a reservation.

you can go there any time of the day, they have some armchairs and sofas for drinks (and boardgames too) and tables for meals. The food is good and well served, the place is nice and cosy, just a bit noisy. For dinner or brunch, booking is a good idea.

There is a good vibe at this place. The food is good, the staff is friendly. However, the soup was served too cold.

A bit pricey by my standard, it's a steal by Swiss standards. The wine selection if rich with local whites and reds. Make time to enjoy a drink in the aperitif corner beside the fire place, one of the cafe's major draws. You are free to linger and will never be badgered to refresh your drink. We dined on a...

A very nice place to eat. It used to be an old typical drinking taverna place , it changed deeply to a nice "branché" and highly appreciated restaurant. A nicecorner of the place is furnished with old and comfortable armchairs and tables, for a coffee or even a quick lunch. The restaurant has such a great success, that you have... More

I have been to Grancy twice. I would say stick to entrees that are standard - don't get too fancy. I liked the salmon but found some other meats not so good. The chicken looked good. A good selection of beers including at least one Belgium. Located a few minute walk below the train station by the Grancy Metro stop... More
