5 minutes walking distance from the train station, this is a real restaurant. Let me explain... Too many establishment sell you glorified "convenience food". To be fair, you'll pay your meal a little more expensive, but when you see 3 cooks and a chef in...More

Being a small place it is a little load when busy however the food is great and the service is well suited. One of my personal favourite in Lausanne. Decor is a little outdated but goes with the charm of the place.
