“Great atmosphere indoors or on the terrasse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We went back to the Buffet de la Gare for a sunny Saturday lunch on the terrasse and were reminded once again why we love this place. Not only is the food consistently excellent, but the service and atmosphere are also outstanding. We had tartare de fera and gazpacho as starters, the sea bass and steak tartare as main courses - all were excellent, well prepared, very fresh. I would not order the apricot tatin again but it was an interesting attempt - I am too faithful to the original apple version, I guess. There is also a decent selection of half bottles of wine, which we appreciate since we usually cannot finish a whole bottle but enjoy a good quality wine nevertheless. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

“Non-functioning card reader”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We had an excellent meal in a lovely setting. Our otherwise pleasant evening was spoilt when the time came to pay the substantial bill. The credit/debit card reader did not function, even with various cards. Customers do not habitually carry around hundreds of francs in cash, so we had to scrape around for cash or transfer euros into francs at an outrageous rate of exchange – one to one. As the bill for six people had already been rounded up to leave a tip, this made an already very expensive meal even more so.

“Over charging”
1 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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
