The owner/manager does not have a good attitude: it seems to be a one man show which makes for long delays a) to get your order in b)to be served your food, and c) you have to wait even to pay... I found the 'guy' arrogant and proud - he spoke German and French to other customers but couldn't speak... More

Didn't get a chance to eat the food because I left after being told they were full when there were 3 empty tables available inside (not to mention places outside). One of the inside tables had a reserved sign on it but not the other two. Only after we made to leave did they begin to offer us outside seating... More

Really welcome little restaurant in glion at the top of the funicular railway . Had a pizza between us and a green salad . Green salad was exactly what it said on the tin. Lettuce and a few slices of tomato ! Pizza was lovely though ! Lovely view as well

Came there for some Ukrainian food! Was really delicious. The good point is that we live in Montreux, so next time we will come there we can preorder dishes other than in the menu, which is very nice of the owner of the restaurant.

Take the funicular from Territet station, get off, walk a dozen steps, and there is the Buffet de la Gare. The ascent will be free if you have the Montreux Riviera card, issued to all visitors, in hotels, apartments, camp-sites, even clinics in the area of Montreux-Vevey. It gives you free rail and trolleybus travel between Villeneuve and the other... More

Glion nestles on the mountainside above Montreux and the restaurant nestles above the station! It was a wet day so we took a ride up on the funicular and went into the restaurant for drinks and croissants. We could see the rain clearing above the lake as we munched. We had a look at the main menu and it was... More

As noted above, this unimposing restaurant has some of the best views of any restaurant in the area! I had the lunchtime special of soup and chicken with paprika sauce and french fries for 18 chf. The menu has a lot of Ukranian specialties. I enjoyed my meal, and savored the beautiful views over Lake Geneva while I ate.
