Les Boucaniers has really great variety of beers for prices comparable to other places in Lausanne, they even brew their own. We tried their burgers, which came half cold and there was nothing really special about them. For what we got, it was really expensive. I am also not a fan of the concept that you always have to go... More

Nice selection of beers and good burgers. Unfortunately, the menu for lunch is somewhat limited. Very friendly service. I will come again.

The atmosphere was a bit dead on a Tuesday night but I guess that is a constant anywhere in Lausanne. The menu is based on a few salads and burgers. The beer menu is nice. We had an Argentina and a Brie burger. The Argentina burger was not great, super garlicky although the Brie one was OK. A shame that... More

The room is of decent size but there are few tables to eat. The waiting time after order (order which you have to give at the bar) is extremely long (we almost waited 45 minutes for burders) and not worth it. The burgers were sub-average (dry bun and tasteless beef patty) but the "grandma fries" are very good.

I had read several good reviews before coming here so I was looking forward to it. The burger was OK, but not amazing and certainly not memorable sadly. The flavour was good, but it lacked a certain je ne sais quoi. More sauce maybe, a sauce that stands out a bit more. A slightly thicker patty would be better also.... More

Nice place to have tasty burgers and beers with friends. You order and pay at the bar, they bring you the food. Price is fine but service is really slow...

Boasting a golden location and set-up, this half-pub half-restaurant has what you'd have to concede is the best and most diverse burger offering in all of Lausanne (at least at the time of writing). Our rating comes with an important proviso: it depends on your expectations. We rate this as a restaurant: seating is alright, especially if you're a bigger... More

Overall a good place to enjoy a burger and drinks, but relatively expensive for a self-service place...

Lots of artisanal beers (a bit pricey). Great food : fresh burgers, good bread and sides. Price is ok.

One of my favorite places in Lausanne for good food and drinks. The people are very friendly and the prices are for swiss standards good.
