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.

It used to be a wonderful restaurant with excellent food at reasonable prices. Since they changed the chef, the quality has gone down dramatically. You read the composition of a dish and most of the time you can't feel half the tastes announced. Wanted to give the place a few chances, so have been back several times and each time was a deception unfortunately. The quality of the meat is not good. Some vegetables were more raw than cooked. They don't even bother to have their daily menus on-line on time. Really too bad!

I went here with my husband for dinner. The entrecôte was tender and juicy and served with rockets, tomatoes, parmesan cheese and French fries. I think I would have preferred some other style of potatoes as French fries (hand-cut or not) didn't do justice to the meal. I also think it's unnecessary to push water for 9 francs a bottle, and especially in a country with perfectly drinkable tap water.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your nice feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dinner, next time do not hesitate to ask for another side dish (all our dishes can be accompanied with mashed potatoes, vegetables, risotto or salad). You can also ask anywhere in Switzerland for tap water on the table. Kind Regards,

Top quality food, chosen locally and mostly bio, you can't go wrong with the taste here. The menu is small and very selective which makes it really easy to choose and also makes it more attractive. The prices are relatively high, but once you eat there you understand why. Service is great too, very easy, friendly and fast. We really enjoyed this place so if you're looking for new places to eat in Lausanne try l'ardoise.

Between city center and lake you can access easily by walk, public or by own car. Food is excellent from local to international. Service is amicable and proactive. Wine selection is the best.

The terrace and the service were fine as well as the steak Tartare. Low quality of the crips. The dessert of the day was disappointing: the strawberries were acid and the figs tasteless. To conclude: a average-low experience.

Dear guest, Thank you for your great comment about the service. Regarding the crisps, we are using local potatoes and there are 100% hand made. Concerning, the strawberries, there are all coming from a local farmer and we are always trying to get the best quality. We hope to welcoming again shortly and wishing you a pleasant summer.

Bad service, nothing special, waste of time . We ordered beef fillet with hand cut fries. Beef was ordinary and fries weren’t hand cut . Ice cream was ordinary.

Dear Erdogan, Thank you for your feedback. It is a shame to read your comment as we would rectified the situation on site if you would have tell you disappointment! Just lo let you know that our meat is dried aged for at least a month by a local butcher artisan. Our potatoes are coming from our local farmers and 100% hand cut. Our ice creams is made by an ice-cream artisan with 100% natural flavours. We can’t do much better about the quality our food. Please let us know your definition of nothing special ? We hope to welcoming you again and wishing you a pleasant summer. King regards, Nicolas

As we were staying at the hotel we tried their breakfast. If you reserve breakfast the day before you can save 5 SFr which brings the price, per person, down to 20 SFr - otherwise it would cost 25!! The breakfast certainly had variety of breads, meats, cereals, etc. I just found the price to be pretty steep.

As I stayed in Carlton Lausanne Hotel, I usually had my meal here. They open at 6 am and I satisfied with the quality of foods ... including fruits and dairy foods. You can choose latte or cappuccino for coffee options including decaf. The space is not so large but tidy and very clean. Staff was very friendly. Love it.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a very nice meal at this restaurant located under the Carlton Hotel, for the third time yesterday evening. I requested a vegetarian menu and was served a tasty Jerusalem artichoke soup, followed by a yummy red beet and parmesan risotto as an entree. I am generally quite picky regarding desserts and what they should taste, yet I was delighted by the white Foret noire cake with dark chocolate sauce... yummm! The environment is classy and nicely decorated, with a relaxed atmosphere. I appreciated the kindness and professionalism of the staff, who adressed all our requests and concerns with a genuine smile and real efficiency, which impressed me since we all had different requests at our table, within our group (not eating meat / fish / food allergies / etc.). Will come back again, for sure!

Good service, good food but they will kick you out at 2200 from the terrasse and start putting everything away sending you a clear message to get out... apparently they are required to do so. The appetiser with raviole Royan was very good which was followed by a rump steak on Ardoise "hot stone that continues cooking the meat". Two of our plates were very good while mine was unfortunately full full of nerves. We would recommend if you can arrive early for the terrasse if not best find another place for the terrasse in the summer.
