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 was the restaurant where we first realized how good Swiss wines are! We asked our waiter for a glass of local wine and ended up with more than one. The food was excellent as well. My husband and I shared a warm goat cheese,...honey, and truffle salad and then he had truffle ravioli. I had a saffron pasta with shrimp and everything was quite delicious!More

Our dinner at Croix d’Ouchy was exceptional. Our waiter Noruta (I apologize for any misspelling) offered terrific guidance on wine selection and the best entrees for my food sensitivities, then reassured me that he had communicated my needs to the chef. His recommendation of a...sweet Viognier was a great pairing with the foie gras appetizer. My husband raved about his veal Marsala. My shrimp risotto was delectably creamy. This meal will be a favorite memory from our Switzerland trip.More

The welcome, and the maitre d’hotel, were perfect. Nice table in the garden. A fine evening and excellent ambience. Food and wine were great. Wine waiter was poor. A spicy Bloody Mary came with no seasoning - merely tomato juice with a splash of vodka...- and a Campari soda came with flat water. We ordered a red wine (which was excellent), so he removed the white wine glasses from our table and plonked them on the table next to us. Generally slap happy. Suggestion to the restaurant: change your sommelier, if it were not for this I’d have been delighted to rate you 5.More

Heard so much about this place so decided to test it on this business trip. First of all, it’s too cramped with people. I understand the concept of BISTRO, but this was beyond normal. Waiters kept on bumping into tables and guests. Obviously no separate...passage for kitchen staff to go to the bathrooms. Saw one of the kitchen staff go several times through a crowded restaurant. I ordered risotto with truffles - risotto itself was done perfectly, but what a scam with truffles - no flavor, no smell, not sure where they purchase those truffles, but definitely a cost cutting scam. The highlight was a grey haired gent, who seemed to be the owner, who was obviously drunk as he stumbled a few times walking around. Disappointing first and last visit - too crowded, overpriced. At the night before at Italian place Saint Marco across the street - much better.More

We dined again with local friends at this restaurant and we all agreed it was one of the best meals we had had in a long time. We ordered a variety of dishes from beef stroganoff through risotto with truffles and it was uniformly excellent....The service, which has sometimes been below par, was extremely good with good suggestions from the maitre d'hôtel that enhanced our choice and a very attentive waitor.More

Food is very traditional Swiss with some Italian influences. This restaurant is probably exactly identical to what it was 50 years ago. Don't go if you're in a rush. this a serious place for people who are serious about food
