I dined here on a business dinner. The service was warm and hospitable. And the food was quite solid - nice quality ingredients well prepared and cooked. The only downside of the place was the atmosphere. It felt very old-fashioned and stale, despite a fairly mixed-age clientele. The environment could stand some liveliness and “sprucing up”. But if only for... More

We have been there a couple of times and the food is always good, in particular the meat. The service is discreet but efficient. The terrasse is lovely.

This restaurant is located close to Ouchy, looks quite old fashion inside and the chairs can use an upgrade in terms of quality. The prices are high, especially the wines are expensive. The service is very friendly and attentive. The food served is also of good quality and portions are of reasonable size. So, nice restaurant but an upgrade of... More

Overall high end place with good quality food. What distinguishes this restaurant is their tiramisu. I'm a picky fan of this desert and normally skeptical of restaurant versions. This one is definitely good. Whenever don't feel like making it myself or in the mode 'I want it here now', I go to Croix d'Ouchy

The restaurant certainly has an exceptional atmosphere with a very attentive and friendly staff. The food is traditionally cooked, but nevertheless with a very high quality and fresh ingredients. Definitely a place to return, when in Lausanne.

They have the "cafe" which is very homely and the restaurant elegant and a beautiful terrace which wasn't open in May. The food is excellent and the service swiss perfection. It seems that every single dish is freshly cooked... More

We had a dinner after a long an strenuous day in the office. On an unusual warm September evening the staff was attentive and made perfect recommendations for food and wine. We had the Carpaccio and as main course Osobucco and beef. All very well cooked and served at leisure. Enjoyable evening with nothing left to demand.
