The meals were delicious, perfectly cooked and creative. Service was nice too. We followed the cook from his former restaurant at Montelly.

Very nice discovery. Beautiful inside summer terrace. Tasty interesting food, very pleasant space. Hopefully, its not a tipical swiss restaurant and you will not find in their menu filet de perche boiled in butter 😉 This place is so nice that I even had doubts if I should review it, because now you will all go there and it will...

Never disappointed when stopping by Les Allies. Good place, summer tastes at lunch, perfect under the summer heat! The staff is also always here, pro and friendly.

Having lived in Switzerland for 4 years, I am always looking for amazing restaurants and a hidden gem! This restaurant does not disappoint! It's a small menu but everything they make tastes amazing. I had the menu of the day, which consisted of foie gras and a side salad, filet mignon of beef with a red peppercorn sauce, with mashed... More

It is an "old" café transformed in a very nice and cosy place. You can eat in the first room but there is a second, more intimate place with a wall chimney in winter. Tables are small, like in a Paris restaurant, but there is enough space to enjoy and not be too close to your neighbours. I was there... More

I have been several times to Les Alliés. The menu is composed of few but refined and tasty dishes, which are well worth the reasonable price for a city like Lausanne. The menu also changes regularly and that is a real plus for those who visit regularly. The wines are also well chosen, essentially Swiss and French, which blends in... More

I visited Les Allies, when I was in Lausanne. I found this restaurant while reading the review on the Gault Millau Guide. Well, the rating they have on this book is so accurate! Food was great! I tried the filet de boeuf with his red wine/chocolate sauce which was so tasty. The fresh ingredients, the cooking style were above what... More

When the weather is nice, there is a beautiful patio where you can sit around and have lunch or dinner. The food is also very good and the staff is very kind. Perhaps a bit pricey.. but worth the try!

This restaurant has a causal area when you enter and a slightly more formal area inside. My hosts in Lausanne brought me here. We started with a pastis to drink - the waitress brought us a delicate, herb-flavored pastis that was a perfect way to start. My first course was veloute (soup) of carrot and ginger - delicately flavored again.... More

My favorite! The decor is simple, cosy and welcoming; the staff is friendly and easy-going, yet very efficient. And the food! Every time I go there is a good surprise. The products are awesome, very fresh and skillfully prepared in a very creative way. Never disappoints!
