For Switzerland, the good food and live music were seriously under-priced. SF100 for two including four glasses of wine.

Once you book a table, you receive a very personnalized service! Mr Regis welcomes u personnaly to show u ur table. Flawless service! (well done Alex& team), Yummy finger food ("I want it all": breaded cheese, crispy chicken...), sweet desserts ( cheese cake, chocolate fondant...), live music, good drinks... Great place to end the week. Highly recommend.

Make a reservation if possible. This place gets busy. We enjoyed a wonderful meal, near the entertainment. Staff here are simply THE BEST.

The bar is absolutely beautiful and situated in one of the most impressive buildings in Montreux. The staff were friendly, attentive and good fun and the drinks were perfect. We chose a couple of their signature cocktails which really hit the spot.

Nice venue for a drink while walking along the lake promenade...restaurant is pricey as Switzerland is Europe's most expensive country. Mingle with the rich and famous for a minute and dream. Funky Claude's is named for a character from Deep Purple's quintessential song, "Smoke on the Water". Grab a t-shirt at the gift shoppe.

We went there for a few drinks on the terrasse and ended up going inside to eat something. The service was really good, people were very friendly, and we globally had a really good time. BUT the 39CHF burger was just cheap and disappointing. The meat wasn't cooked the way we asked and you could see by its texture that... More

What a fantastic night but now I'm poor. Fantastic atmosphere, wonderful live music. We were greeted at the door by the Maître'D who shook my hand and asked how we were.
