I walked by this place many times seeing it full inside. So one day I went there with a friend just to give ir a try. We ordered only tapas to taste as many dishes as possible ! They weren't that bad. The service was nice ... but somehow we didn't find it extraordinary. We ordered guacamole, pea soup, octopus... More

The co-owner (Aunald) was extremely helpful and friendly. The duck, filet of beef with tamponade were outstanding and the local red wine was perfect with dinner! Make sure you try the chocolate lava cake for dessert!

Welcome was friendly with tables proposed to us. Food was good thought the "Parmentier de Légumes" was not so well garnished: potatoes shouldn't be the main vegetable in the middle of a polenta! Thus a food quality/price ratio a bit to high but the menu was ok ok according my colleague. Service was a bit slow but friendly staff made... More

Just finished dinner at Minuit Soleil. When you reserve for a group of 7, one hopes for some kind of acknowledgement upon arrival (beyond pointing to the table that had been set for us). Having been here some time ago, we were surprised to learn that there is no printed menu; only the small selection written on the chalk boards.... More

Dear Sir, first of all we are sorry you din't enjoy your meal in our restaurant. The idea of presenting our dishes on a blackboard even of a paper is to get always some opportunities to have some new ideas, fresh food of the market and suggestions. We will not come back at a fixed seasonal menu on a paper... More

I have never experienced such horrible restaurant service in my life (and yes that is a bold statement)! It took 1.5 hours for 4 salads- and they even brought 1 wrong salad. The manager didnt even have the courtesy to apologize- and instead started making up excuses. We ended up paying 100 chf for 4 salads that we didn't even... More

Probably the worst restaurant I have ever been to. The owner is rude and obnoxious.. Waited more than an hour for a nasty soggy salad. We did not eat our food and the owner charged us the full bill. The owner has deleted my negative review from trip advisor i am reposting it. I also have friends who have had... More

I was rather shocked by the end of our evening at Minuit Soleil. A long wait for drinks, an even longer wait for food (these were salads!) and then the incorrect food being served, followed by a verbal chastising by the manager when we complained; we couldn't quite believe it when we finally walked out! Some basic customer service skills... More
