Loved popping in here for a bite to eat, some drinks and some live music. Fantastic staff - really friendly, chatty, courteous and efficient. It is pricey though so be prepared to pay Swiss prices!

Enjoyed a unique cocktail with mates on the patio whilst it was drizzling. Although it was an early Sunday evening, the ambience was funky!

Cool place with a good mix of people in what used to be for many years, if I am not mistaken the old Harry,s Bar in Montreux. Good music, nice drinks

Classy joint with a nice stage set up for Duos & Jazz Trios. I am very Particular about my Martinis and they made mine spot on. Drinks did take a bit longer than we are used to but that seemed to be the norm all around this area. The Duo this night took some cheesy seventies pop tunes and reworked... More

We popped into Funky Claude’s on a late Friday afternoon and enjoyed a couple of cocktails in a, well, funky bar. It does have a good vibe about the place and the drinks are good, we only wish we could’ve stayed longer but it had been a long day and we had to get back to our hotel to change... More

Called in to eat half way round visiting the Christmas market. A lot of reserved tables but waitress found us a nice table. My shellfish allergy was immediately understood and wasn't a problem. Food arrived and was good but a little on the cool side. Lively atmosphere. Waitress was nice.

I had really high expectations for this place, but the moment we walked in the hostess was rude to us, we sat down and ordered our drinks, first time I noticed that the drinks were not made at the bar, but behind the door in the kitchen. The drinks were good.
