We arrived at the lake front restaurant mid afternoon, right before the kitchen closed. We were lucky to get a seat however the waitress was saying "why do customers always arrive when the kitchen closes". We did feel a little offended by this. However even...More

Small and cute with friendly and energetic staff. We ate there twice because of the fondue and roesti. We received limoncello as an added treat.

Very tasty food at affordable (for Switzerland anyway) prices. We had the hamburger, which was very good (though not very typical as its with pork meat and doesn't have a bun). Tiramisu was petty good and meringues were very good.

Really lovely meal with an incredible view. Friendly staff, great snails and woodland (sous-bois) rosti. Brilliant and unpretentious and nowhere as expensive as the places nearby and even next door. Loved it.

Sometimes restaurants can seem false. All for show. Manufactured. Le Vieil Ouchy isn't false in any way. It's small, friendly and serves nicely cooked food in an old fashioned, traditional way. Steak frites. Fondue. That sort of thing. A small but sensible wine menu. And...More
