I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for 2 nights before traveling to meet up with friends in Spain. I had dinner one night and was so impressed. The staff was incredibly polite, despite my horrible attempts at French. The Perch was delicious and the staff recommended perfect wine pairings. The lovely porch was perfect to watch the sun go down.

We went expecting an amazing view and great food. The terrace is nice indeed but it’s surprising very few comments mention the train passing by every 20mn…it really does ruin the experience. Having to stop talking every 20mn while the train passes is not what we expected. The view should definitely not be the reason to come to this restaurant. The food was good (not amazing though) but the service was rather bad. We waited 1h15mn to get our main dishes…when asked about our order, the waiter kept on saying « it’s coming » without even apologizing for the long wait. Net, it was a rather disappointing experience.!

Hello Maya
thank you for your remarks. Sorry that the waiting time for your main course after your starter was too long for your taste. As for the trains, we are the Auberge de la Gare, but if you had chosen the Auberge du lac, you would not have had to interrupt your conversations. And for the view...... sorry

It was our second visit to Grandvaux, and we stayed 3 nights. The rooms are few but delightful - spotlessly clean, as you would expect, very nicely appointed, very comfortable beds and a fabulous view over the lake. The food is outstanding (the filets de perche and the steak tartare are particularly fine), and the staff are a delight. Merci, les amis - can't wait to go again.

What a tangible place. So much personal care, so many fine details, such a friendly and honest hospitality. We have been overwhelmed by the culinary offer and the fine, regional winelist. Together with friends, we spent a marvellous evening on the auberge's terrace overlooking Lac Lemon. Careful, patient still efficient servers who have been working at this auberge for a long time, make the whole difference. Monsieur et Madame Delessert give to this appearently unimposing place soul and spirit.
All rooms have been refurbished recently with a great deal of successful planning, keeping the guests' needs in mind. A few, well placed vintage furniture and nostalgic decor make the stay unique - this goes as far as to the vintage coat hangers and coat hooks.
All this said it seems needless to mention the perfect yet small breakfast buffet with authentic home-made jam and an excellent cup of coffee.

The food served and staff welcome here are terrific. And you get to see a selection of Swiss trains over lunch from your table.....visit the Domaine Croix Duplex afterwards for a wine tasting.
