“Over charging”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We were over charged by Chf37 for a bottle of wine. as I started to point out the error in the bill, the waitress knew the issue before I finished my sentence, leading me to think that this was not an accident. I was wondering if anybody else had had the same experience ?
Otherwise, the food was excellent.

“bien venu”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

a delightful enviroment is the true starter here, even when the place is busy they always take time to greet you and Sandra is really good at remembering you.

start with and Aperol and perrier and then anything you choose on the swiss-romande many is going to be top notch,wether fish from the lake or quennelles made a la main in the kitchen you will enjoy.

My passion here is the amazing and well priced wine list truly unusual and enjoyable and the service is NEVER too hurried or rushed.
The sound of the bubbling streamand the smell from the elderflower blossom at to this last meal to celebrate world refuge week starting and as always Sandra and the patron had time for a joke

sit back enjoy and do what the Swiss do so well

relax

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Whenever we feel like going out, this place is among the first ones to be considered. Everything matches up: the service, the traditional cuisine (it is definitely cuisine Suisse Romande with a french flair) and an Art Nouveau decor. The quality of dishes remains the same-top. There is a seasonal offer and a suggestion for children. In summer this place offers a very pleasant terrace with a playground for children. The last but not least, always easy to book (the prices are not low, but correspond to the quality). Worth a try.

“Amongst the Best of what the Lake Geneva Region has to offer”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

As our work is very closely nearby we eat at this restaurant 3-4 times per week, be it for business, with friends, with my wife, there is always a good reason to eat at the Buffet de la Gare. So this review relates to more than just one visit.

The food is always excellent and we have never been disappointed. During the week, there is always a daily special, at a very competitive price. Or you have an menu with a good variety of excellent dishes, most of which are Regional, French, and sometimes Portuguese cuisine. Some of the highlights I can recommend (and which always on the menu): the Filet de Boeuf, Tartar de Boeuf, Filets de Perche (during the season), and Tarte au Citron. All dishes are fresh, prepared with great care, and usually well balanced. The wine menu offers a lot of choice, both for amateurs, up to experts, and yet without being too big.

The atmosphere is that of the old train station of Céligny, with a lot of Antique items of the days when the building was an actual train station. During the summer, the terrace is superb, very spacious and very green.

The service is perhaps one of the best features (in a part of Switzerland were smiles are rare), as staff are always friendly, very helpful, and go out of their ways to make you feel comfortable.

My recommendation is to try it if you haven't yet, and to reserve well in advance if you wish to have a table on a Friday / Saturday night.
