I first ate here in the 1970s during Frédy Girardet's reign in the kitchen, and promptly fell in love with this restaurant! And although my husband and I could never afford to eat here regularly (who can??), over the years it became our absolute favourite spot for special celebrations, or simply when we needed a hedonistic treat! We returned under... More

I went to this restaurant for a special occasion with two family members, and I was very nicely surprised. The staff were immaculate and efficient, although at some moments it felt a little imposing. The food was perfection. I eat everything and anything, but one of my companions doesn't - and this restaurant completely busts the myth that Michelin rated... More

The restaurant got its 3-stars Michelin rating again just a few days before we had lunch, and the chef certainly deserves it! We had just about the best meal ever: my husband organized a menu with the help of the maître d' hotel, Monsieur Villeneuve, the most gracious and welcoming host; I chose 3 items from the menu. How to... More

We spent THE MOST AMAZING day with Chef Giovannini and his team. Fantastic cooking tips and meals we prepared under guided instruction where doubly delightful to consume. There is a special atmosphere in this kitchen - you need to experience it to understand just how important and influential this is to the final meals enjoyed. Highly recommended.

Certainly could not fault the food, especially the sauces. The Bresse chicken was remarkable as they use recipe of Freddy who is long gone. Service good but not outstanding. They are trading on the past and do not deserve three stars. And at $400 per person (yes, you read that correctly $400 per person) everything should be the best. We... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant nestled in the village of Olon. If you can get by the extremely high prices in Switzerland this is a gem. The menu is all in French. My wife translated for me and I settled on the steak. A good choice. The rest had perch and pork chops. All nicely presented and good food.... More

After the trgic passing of the head chef - one might wonder could they maintain the astronomical standards that led to La Liste rating it the number 1 restaurant in the world. I have been going here since Freddy Giradet days and can confirm that HdeV is a good or better than ever.

Excellent service, Food reinvented, Sales team that puts any other to shame. Their enthusiasm and belief in their product unwavering and bring you around to trying and experimenting with novelties. Anyone who can afford it, must experience this marvel of the culinary world. They deserve 4 Michelin stars.
