My husband and I met up with a friend and decided to meet here as it was near her BnB. We arrived for an early lunch and the hostess was very easy going and didn't mind us taking up a corner for a few hours. We ordered a variety of meals, from a large steak to a light carpaccio plate.... More

Welcomed by a solely working French madam. She was very busy and barely speaks english. Steak was great; good portion with special butter sauce, a little bit salty. For me, fish was just average. Overall, it was fine and pleasant time, but I would look for a better one next time. There is a hidden parking space you can ask... More

We had 4 different main courses, all were excellent with great portions. Excellent service. A bit pricey (like everything in Switzerland :D )

Worth the walk up the hill to the top of the old town to dine here. A small restaurant that nestles in a wooded gorge over which rumbles the rack and pinion mountain train. It is very "French" with no apparent concession to English speaking. Madame runs it in a brusque but jovial manner. The food was very tasty and... More

They use only good materials. I had Filet de perche, which come from Geneve lake. If there is no perche from the Geneve lake, they will not serve "Filet de Perche". Staff is very friendly, but they just speak French. Taste and quality is perfect. Location is in the old town, and it is quiet are.

Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, just to keep it simple - it is top - quality of food, service and atmosphere. Everybody well looked after. We will certainly go back as many times as we can :-)..... You pay as you go, but that's everywhere and they are very fair for excellent quality. Chris & Kim, Switzerland

We ate here on our last night which was a shame as to be honest it was by far the best restaurant we ate in. Most eateries seemed to be Italian which is OK but not every night. The whole experience was good ,a bit like eating in someone's own dining room,with all there collections around you. The couple that... More

We walked to this restaurant from Tralala Hotel. It was darling inside. It was our first night in Montreux and our french was not good. The waitress was NOT helpful at all with our inability to read the french menu. We were able to get the local people at the table next to us to help us order a bowl... More

Very nice experience with both food and service. Went there with family, the menu was very clear with pictures presenting the different kinds of fishes from the lake. Highly recommend the Perche fish from the Geneva lake! The Montreux pinot gris white wine went very well with the fish. All these for a reasonable price!
