Worth the trek up the hill behind the main railway station to seek this charming restaurant out and relieved to find it was open for evening dining - either al fresco in a courtyard or inside the atmospheric old building. Good for Swiss speciality food...More

Le Museum is a grandiose display of Swiss hospitality and its cuisine. The dimly-lit wooden dining room takes you back in time while you indulge in delicious meat and cheese classics. A beautiful terrasse with view on the lake completes the experience. Highly recommended!

Walked up into the old town from the lake and found this nice olde worlde restaurant, in a cellar with beamed ceiling. Also a nice outdoor terrace. Lots of traditional food on the menu including fondue

Description
The Museum is situated in a historical building in the old town of Montreux and it is less than 10 minutes walking distance from the main train station. Founded in the early years of the worldwide known Montreux Jazz Festival The Museum has been the place to be for many internationally known stars like Mick Jagger and David Bowie to name but a few. The setting is traditionally Swiss with an authentic atmosphere. In summer a peaceful court invites families and friends to enjoy a meal in a relaxing environment. The Museum accepts groups of up to 150 people and it is the ideal place for family or company events, but it is also a romantic place if you'd like to spend a privileged moment with your loved one. The Museum honours the Swiss cuisine with many different cheese and meat fondues of the highest quality. You could also try their famous' Charbonnade', a charcoal grill on which you grill your meat according to your own taste! Most of the menus are served with the outstanding potato gratin made with chef's secret ingredients (this includes 10 different Swiss cheeses). We look forwards to welcome you soon !
