Restaurant du Pont is a traditional-style restaurant in Montreux old town and it is quite charming, as is the service. The food is good but not exceptional, except for the straw fries which are fabulous - I ate all those! Less fabulous was the lake...More

We stopped by for lunch in Montreux on our way to Bern. We were supposed to go to a cafe called Tea Room in Baye only to find it closed until 18 Jan 2018 (Tripadvisor had incorrectly identified the place as being open...). I did...More

Alright, folks, get over it. They don't serve tap water. It says so on the menu. If that's your complaint, then you're missing the point. The bottled water does just fine, and is not the reason you come here. But let's get onto the important...More

The service by an apparently new employee was excellent. The extremely rude rebuff by the owner herself when my 11 year old grandson requested a glass of normal tap water overshadowed the evening. The food (salad with goat cheese and a small beef steak) was...More
