Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant was outstanding. First class service, and a truly gastronomic experience. I have eaten at many 3 star michelin guide restaurants and never better than this. When we go back to Lausanne, i will make it a point to visit this restaurant again. I...recommend it 100%.You will never eat better food. The wine was also excellent and fairly priced.More

I didn’t know the place and was invited by a friend. Central location, very nice, modern and clean restaurant. Food is really great, amazing combination for a surprising result. Follow the instructions of the chef for the choice on the wine. Service is very nice...and kind. Overall a very pleasant evening with a very good friend and excellent food. Well done!More

I had a solo dinner at this modern but stylistically simple restaurant near Lausanne Flons. The service was very good but a little slow between some of the numerous courses that composed the degustation menu. Nearly all components were good although the egg a la...carbonara was unusual for the combination of tastes and textures. The seafood course was fantastic as was the gnocchi (pasta course) and the supreme de pintade (Guinea fowl?) which seemed like it had been cooked sous vide but with a tasty sauce. The service was decent but not amazing and the wine list had a nice mix of Swiss, Italian, and French wines but it too was relatively limited although there were some very well selected whites and reds by the glass and the bottle with a broad price range. This is a relatively expensive restaurant but a fun place to visit.More

Very good Italian restaurant hidden in Lausanne downtown. All dishes were very innovant made of creative and delicious ingredient pairings. The menu was perfectly sized with a good wine pairing. The restaurant is super modern and the ambiance business casual with a nice view over...the kitchen from all ground floor tables. We would however point out the price that is a too high. The dinner menu is CHF 135.- and goes up to 170.- with the wine pairing and appetizer. Also the service is good/casual, but must be improved for such a price!More

Nice restaurant but the prices should be adjusted to the service and the quality offered. It is a bit too expensive and the wines are overpriced for example we selected a wine that Normally you pay 30 CHF and this restaurant sells it at 120CHF....The service is very poor and I was surprised that they served fish without the appropriate fish cutlery.More

Very innovative menu - some interesting pairings, top marks for effort and presentation - although not sure a couple of dishes fullfilled their potential. Still top quality, in calm modern atmosphere, with glass fronted kitchen where you can watch the masters at work

We enjoyed a wonderful evening in a laid-back atmosphere with a lot of class. The service was great and I really appreciated how they never interrupted conversations, but really made us feel welcome at the same time. All the dishes were excellent and thoughtful, a...real pleasure and an unforgettable evening!More

We’ve been to this restaurant before and have been disappointed by the quality and presentation of the meals as well by the ambiance. We gave it another try when we heard that the chef had changed. The dishes were excellent, very savory and simply but...well presented. Desserts were pleasant, not too sweet but one of them, sort of a chocolate- nut cake had the taste of (high quality) industrial food. Ambiance was ok, not more not less. We will certainly give it another try. Oh, forgot: prices are *really* high!More

Excellent flavors and nicely presented. The red salad with blue cheese and apple was particularly delightful. After a relatively light meal, the dessert (pictured) was the perfect finale.

We were in Lausanne and were looking for any Michelin star restaurants. We found Eligo and decided to go for lunch. We were welcomed by a very nice waiter and given a nice table. We tried the risotto, lasagne, and gnocchi. They were all really...good, but the gnocchi was extra special. Would definitely be back again!More

We went for lunch and to be honest I was unimpressed about everything. The place was almost empty on a Saturday, the decor is cold and uninviting with dire lounge music and the menu had literally nothing that I wanted to eat. Neither my wife...or I wanted to eat any of the starters, there were only two meat and fish choices for the main course and the five or so pasta dishes seems to combine ingredients that I found simply bizarre. I ended up eating half a pork dish which didn’t work at all. It’s amazing that this place is in the category of some truly great restaurants. I will definitely not be going back.More

Located in the heart of Lausanne Eligo is a modern restaurant with exquisite meals with a variety of options. The staff were very kind and helpful and they were supper polite and well mannered. The food was amazing with lots of unique choices. I highly...recommend Eligo if you come to Lausanne and I hope you enjoy it!More

It was recommended by one of my friends, I was really expecting a fantastic culinary experience. And although for whatever reasons we received only one tablet for two to read the menu (the restaurant was still empty as it was an early evening) it started...well and promising. with best gazpacho I have ever eaten. Unfortunately both main courses, my lobster (homard canadien, the most expensive dish in the entire menu) on green pea puree was missing both, the taste and color (the puree looked like overcooked). I also found a remaining part of shell. Home made pasta with ricotta looked very good on a plate but still, there was something missing in that dish.Rather average than really good. The dessert moelleux chocolat noir was a very nice ending of our dinner but I do not think I will come back again, there is a number of much better places around. The interior design very modern and nice music in the background.More
