Nice evening with friends from Greece. Good selection of starters. The "filets de perche from the Lac Leman" were fresh and nicely served and the foie-gras poêle was delicious. Wine list reasonably priced. All in all reasonable value for money. The restaurant does however need a lifting, starts looking a bit old.

When I lived in the Nyon area, I used to go often to Maitre Jacques which I had been very pleased with. I went back last week and I was so disappointed like the 2 people I who were with me. The setting and the atmosphere were lovely but the filets de perche were not tasty at all, they were... More

We had dinner there last night. Good service, lovely little restaurant but I thought the food was average. I had the steak with pepper sauce but I thought it was a little bland and not enough sauce. It came with potato wedges which tasted fairly dry and I thought they were probably pre-cooked earlier in the day and warmed up.... More

This small, long-established restaurant is located in a 14th century building in the centre of Nyon. The warm, relaxed ambience offers a pleasant informality. The friendly, helpful staff are able to handle any queries about the dishes, and/or deal with any linguistic problems. Our group of six ordered a variety of dishes, but the fera (local whitefish from the Lake)... More

Lovely old style restaurant in the hart of Nyon. The food is always good and the "Filet de Perche au Citron" are the best in the area. The service is perfect and the atmosphere is very cozy.

It's a cozy intimate place in the old town. Cuisine is correct but nothing unusual. Service courteous but prices are high in comparison with better restaurants in this area. I would not select this place to celebrate a special occasion.

I went here last night with a group of 12 from work. I order the fish soup for a starter, perche from Lake Geneva for main, and the chocolate lava cake for dessert. I would rate the soup a three as it was a bit too fishy and I am not a bug fan of a brown colored soup. The... More
