May be our choice of the nettle soup as a starter was too adventurous a choice but it brought a slightly bitter mood to our evening. We may have then more focused on the weaknesses of the place than on its strengths . Indeed, views from that auberge are great. Are not we in Lavaux? Yes, service is friendly and... More

This auberge definitely lived up to our expectations. From the very good local wine and filets de perche to the extremely friendly waitress and other staff, it definitely scored highly on all aspects of the dining experience. This place cannot be classified as fine dining, but rather more as high quality local fare of substance and with no pretence.. personally... More

I came already a few times for a business lunch and decided to bring my family for dinner. You have to book your table very well in advance since this place is renowned by locals and expats. The dinner was excellent with an efficient and friendly service. I could recommend the foie gras, then filet de perches ( one of... More

Charming place, well renovated old traditional building and a very nice crew that makes you feel very comfortable. On a very especial evening, we had great food served by an efficient and nice crew. Excellent meat and fish from the lake. Salads and dressings are also great.

I really should have kept this restaurant as a little gem for myself, but the word has spread around here and the Auberge de la Gare has become quite well known. The building in which the restaurant is housed is unassuming, it was probably built at the turn of the last century in the typical "Swiss railway" style. But the... More
