The staff were professional and perfect. We had a shared salad to start and it was more varied than you would expect. This was followed by grilled fish and tasty little fries. A good address to recommend.

I have been to La Gerbe d'Or a number of times over the past 19 years. It's something I look forward to each time I visit Switzerland from my home in Canada. The quality of the ingredients as well as the care that goes in to the presentation of every plate is only matched by the very best restaurants that... More

Sat down at 13:15. Ordered soup de poussin Bland and tasteless Felt pressed to eat and leave, and I was not that late to eat. Sandwich and bottle of wine would have been preferable

From the reviews on trip advisor we chose this restaurant and the reviews were spot on. Lovely local restaurant with really good service and really nice food. Only down side, it's on the slightly more expensive side.

Should you be in Estavayer, don't miss the opportunity to dine at La Gerbe d'Or. Recommended by a local to go there, we were not disappointed. This bistro style cafe-restaurant is unassuming yet cosy, and the staff very friendly and efficient. We opted for the menu/plat du jour comprising soup, salad and a choice of duck or fish. All was...

This restaurant looks very ordinary and unimpressive from the outside, but you will be pleasantly surprised. The food and service is good and the prices are reasonable.

La Gerbe d'Or is a nice restaurant at the old center of Estavayer. It is a small place with very good food and a very friendly service. The salad served was very good with a very nice vinaigrette. The fish soup served in a large bowl and with garlicbread and aioli was very good as well though missed a little... More

Had a wonderful fruit-icecream desert and a cappuccino with a tasty foam. Though speaking French only, they got us pretty well. Cozy family service, seems to be popular among locals.
