As often in Switzerland, you walk in, you look around for staff for a while and stand there until they tell you: "yeah just a minute". Then you turn around and take your money elsewhere. Great vue, even greater prices, very low service.

Relais de la Poste is well known for the wonderful view of lake Geneva and the Alps, but that is about all. Excluding the view, it is an expensive though average restaurant. The dining area is old-fashioned and boring. The personnel looks indifferent and behaves in a rather snobby manner. The food did not thrill me either, definitely not for... More

This a beautiful Restaurent with one of the most stunning views of Lake Leman and the Alps in the heart of the UNESCO world heritage sites. Super wines at a good price from the region. I have never been disappointed by its food and service.

Staff friendly. View good. Blaring music when we got there. Ice cold green salads to start with. Soggy fries for our perch filets. Tartar sauce not much to do with tartar sauce but rather mayonnaise... Chewy day old bread. Good moelleux Au chocolat with a scoop of ice cream the size of a small cherry.

Love this place for a family celebration. In good weather the view of Lake Leman is breathtaking, and a great spot for4 a sunset photo.

Decidely the sort of place to go for a special meal out, e.g. a birthday, or exam celebration, where the cost will not break the bank. The view of the lake is spectacular, the service deferential, the décor restrained, and the recommended special menu simply mouth-watering.

The restaurant has an excellent view on Lake Geneva and the Lavaux vineyards. However, the food is only so so. We had "filet de perche" and venison. Our "filet de perche" was quite ok, whereas the vegetables accompanying the venison were dry on the top. Looked like heated up several times. They served us several vines to taste before we... More

This restaurant is beautifully located between the vineyards around Lausanne, with a great view over the lake. This makes up for the mediocre kitchen.

We had family over and a birthday to celebrate. The Relais de la Poste was the perfect place to meet and eat. The view allows you to admire the beauty of Switzerland: vineyards, villages, the lake and the mountains. We were attended extremely quickly. Food was good (red label entrecote). We had a lovely evening!

Perched high up overlooking the vineyards and the lake, Relais de las Poste is a great place to savour the local delights and enjoy the spectacular scenery. After your meal [or before, if you want to work up an appetite] park your car and take a walk among the vineyards, there are signposts and plenty of caves to buy the... More
