Located in what I imagine to be the grandest hotel in Montreux we expected it may have airs but we were pleasantly surprised to find it not the least bit pretentious. On arrival we weren't entirely happy with our table and the friendly hostess was...More

Lunch with a mixed age family. The cafe is beautiful, decor, tables, crockery, music. The servers are really lovely, friendly and warm and chatty. Our food was presented well and tasted great - burgers. Probably the best burger I've had in at least a year....More

As a coeliac traveler I always triple check with the waiters that the food is safe. Just like always I explained my gluten allergy to the waiters and listed all the possible forms that it could take (from soy sauce to barley) - and got...More

No ‘live’ jazz, but good ambience and great service. Must try the roasted chicken and off-menu ice cream!

Good food, great burger for those filled up on fondue and culture. Excellent service and the staff was not put off by our tennis shoes and back packs. Also excellent for a more formal dinner. Great local choices, but that burger...

An especially laid-back slice of luxury, directly inspired by the atmosphere of the legendary music festival, and decorated with a plethora of Claude Nobs memorabilia. The generous cuisine, combined with a selection of the region's best wines and irresistibly-named aperitifs, make it the perfect venue to share an informal moment enveloped by that special festival feel. Pulsing to the jazz rhythms of the greatest concerts, immersed in surroundings filled with emotion - or indeed sitting at the Chef's table - the Montreux Jazz Cafe embodies the event's inimitable vibe as it reverberates out along the Riviera - and echoes endlessly across the planet, as it has done ever since 1967. Please, note that pets are not allowed at the Montreux Jazz Cafe.
