Had the "hot stone" with beef for dinner, was okay but nothing special. Staff speaks good English, which was appreciated.

Great little place, fantastic food. The beef steaks and the horse are out of this world. Going to Vevey isn't complete without a meal here

It was a pleasure to eat there with my boyfriend. We ate "viande sur ardoise" and it was so tasty. The price is really affordable for that kind of plate and the wine was delicious as well. I really recommend this place, also because the service is really good.

Good Solid Steaks - that wont break the bank (which is rare in CH). The staff are lovely and it is a nice, out of the way, restaurant and place to have a quiet drink and meat!

I am a food snob. I like high end cuisine and when i do eat out, i probably feel that the location and the service are completely part of a higher end culinary experience. When i first got to Chez John, my first instinct was to run as fast as possible. The place has the sex appeal of a truck... More

restaurant serving traditional food and meat on stone with good quality at affordable prices. Also interesting wine offer: few labels of good quality at fixed, low price per bottle. Definitely a "must go" place in vevey

This is absolutely my favourite restaurant for steak and chips anywhere. The welcome is always warm and the steaks served on the hot stone are excellent.

Fantastic steak which is available in 150g, 300g, and 600g servings. Choose between beef, lamb, or horse. You can even mix-and-match. We also had a great Argentinian house red wine. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The decor is basic Swiss pub style albeit with a quirky twist. Considering the outstanding quality of the food, this place is also very reasonably priced.... More

Chez John is a small pub opposite the football ground. The decor is standard plain pub stuff. What Chez John does superbly is steak cooked on stone with frites and sauces. Excellent stuff. They also can do a decent fondue, daily plat du jour, and a pizza oven with merguez their best. Nothing fancy - just good grub. John is... More
