We came to have a nice fondue chinoise and thought it would be nice to come here considering the positive reviews and the photos... needless to stay we were bothering the waiters more than anything. Upon arrival, ignored, after 10 minutes of waiting awkwardly, and being ignored by the waiter from upstairs... we were told to go downstairs by the... More

The fondue "moité-moité" was excellent on this rainy october evening. The service was slow and disorganized even while the restaurant was only 1/3 filled. We were served by 3 different waiters..…

My wife and I stopped here for dinner and found our waiter unfriendly and the food very average for the price. We would not recommend this restaurant.

The central spot to try local dishes. Yes, it's touristic, yes, it offers the entire menu of Swiss dishes, but the overall feel and taste of this experience I'm sure you'll enjoy! The place is big and has a distinct classy look, with places both inside and outside. Prices are mid-range.

Our soup was too acidic and the vegetables came in without any seasoning. Overall quite disappointing. The service is good though, and fast.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel receptionist so decided to give it a go and we were pleasantly surprised. Our food was excellent and came out quickly after we ordered, the wine was great and the service was good although we waited a while to have our plates cleared and the check given after we finished. The atmosphere... More

Lunch was good but service was a bit slow which wasn't the waitress' fault. It seems they were slightly understaffed so it took longer than usual to get service to order and also adding new orders. However, it is located in a good spot, close to the metro. Food had a wide range but we mostly ordered swiss style food.... More

I had a nice time and the food was local and tasty. The beer was good and friends in good mood. Place was crowdy so I think it is a popular to go out.

On my first day in Lausanne I searched for a nice, affordable restaurant in the old town. This brasserie was my choice, and I'm glad I took it. I had been given a tip by a friend to try the perch/frites and he was right to do so! While most old town restaurants featured perch, it was more pricey than... More
