We discovered this place while walking the city. I've eaten in a lot 3-star restaurants, and I would give Fausto a star for his honest, and delicious dishes. The bolognese is a dream come through. Make sure he tells you his fathers story!

La Grappe d'Or, in spite of tis name, is an Italian restaurant. The owner's father worked with Fellini in Rimini, and the place is full of memorabilia from Amarcord and other films. The ambience is warm and welcoming, the service attentive and friendly. The menu and the wines are Italian with openings to international cuisine. We had great fish and... More

LA GRAPPE D’OR Rue du Cheneaux de Bourg 3 1003 Lausanne A weekend in Lausanne is both exciting and disappointing. Exciting enough to roam around the city with buses half empty. Disappointing enough to learn that most restaurants are closed, and so with all department stores and galleries too. After a hop in and hop off on buses and trudging... More

I have recently been here for a birthday dinner and it was a disaster. The owner went mad when he realised that there were two more people than reserved. The waitress was completely unable, not able to open a bottle of wine not even to recognise the dishes she was bringing or to know what was in them. I ordered... More

Picked this restaurant by chance for lunch. Very impressed. Food was excellent (plate of cold cuts with home made mozzeralla cheese/ fresh herbs, pasta with tomato chile sauce, white wine) though not cheap. The owner says the restuaruant is the oldest in Lausanne, and it certainly has old charm. The owner has an amazing collection of memorabilia (framed / signed... More

It is not a cheap restaurant but good for business dinners that are not overly formal. Sometimes there is live music which is a bit too loud. They have excellent wines and the food is very well prepared. The owner is a nice person who makes you feel at home.

The service was very good and we had a table right next to the chimney. Ask for this one it it's winter time outside. It's the best one. The tables are big and confortable, the atmosphere is very warm and classy, the food is very good quality and well prepared. They offered some specific dishes not on the menu to... More

There are two good things about this place: the food is delicious, and the service very polite. However the atmosphere in the restaurant is rather bizarre. Heavy decorations (mix of swiss chalet style with cleric elements) while there is a (cute) dog running around among people dinning. A rather unpleasant moment was to have in front of us a plate...

Located just under Bessiere metro station, very convenient but it's not the hippiest place in town thus, i totally understand why this restaurant is not very popular. The interior concept is a bit confusing, you can tell it's an Italian restaurant thanks to the Venice scenery paintings otherwise it looks like a French restaurant. Price ranges from CHF 20 for...
