After the Christmas market at Montraux we stopped for a coffee and glass of wine. From the front Charlie's looks like a small cafe, however to the back and up the stairs there is a large area with supurb views of the lake and mountains. Served by a lovely waitress we sat in the window and watched the world go... More

We ended up here by chance but were soon happily surprised. The restaurant offers everything from a complete menu, bar food as well as well made food suitable from children. It was all well cooked and the menu was a nice balance with some local specialities. The view was nice and the small space made it more conversation friendly. For... More

The restaurant advertised non-stop food. The suited us as we were a bit late to switzerland standard. I felt discouraged to order food, and only some of the food on the menu was available. I ordered a salad. It lacked of everything. I really didn't taste fresh. Most of the table on the terrasse were unoccupied but still messed-up from... More

Le Charley's is situated with two entrances - one on a small street and the other on the lakeside. Imagine our surprise when we entered from a small street and were led to a beautiful balcony overlooking Lake Geneva for our dinner. The food was very good and the local white wine was truly wonderful. We never felt rushed and... More

Charly's has several different places to eat - outside on the pavement in the vieille ville (old town), upstairs dining room with lovely veranda and lake view and a bar near the lake with food and drink. The veranda is our favourite because of the lovely view across to France and the lake boats/swans/pedalos coming by. The menu is varied.... More

Nice view but prices a little high... Great service and coloring for children. Too bad not many items on the menu and hard to negotiate among those listed... Might return for a drink

The hamburgers and hot chicken dishes where the worse I have eaten in years. For the price is really not worth it. The service was friendly.

I come here for a good burger fix.They use bagel instead of the usual bun. Meat was cooked perfectly, just let them know the doneness when you order. It's quite filling and tastes excellent!

After leaving one of the chic restaurants that only served a set lunch menu, we arrived here. The service staff was very friendly. The menu is small but adequate with something to suit all tastes. We sat on the outside terrace on the lake with a lovely view. The food was all exactly as described and very tasty. We did... More
