“Very good French food”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I went to this restaurant several times for lunch and for dinner. As always the service is very professional and the food are excellent. During summer the terrace is very nice and quiet. I highly recommend to book before. Pricey but worth it!

“In one word - Excellent”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We have been here before. This restaurant has maintained its quality in all aspects. The food is excellent, well cooked, nicely presented. The staff, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. One starts with an amuse-bouche and finishes with some mignardises. We had a wide variety of dishes, none could be faulted. (Scallops, Fish, Risotto, Frogs Legs, Oysters, Fowl, Fish Soup, different desserts). It was a real pleasure to have everything served on warm plates.

Prices may be slightly higher than elsewhere but nothing out of the ordinary. Prices are completely justified by the quality and freshness of the food.

The decor of this restaurant - retro, art deco - reminds one of the old station restaurant as its name indicates.

An experience to be repeated.

“Nice very French, Suisse”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Its a very nice place with in one way good food. Unfortnally some parts on the plate was prefabricated. This in the range of pricing is for me a little bit to much. The "ambiance" is great but the chef has to do better.

“As usual: very good!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The Buffet de la Gare lives to its reputation: excellent food and very nice (although overpriced) wine list.

The filet of beef is an all time favourite and the cheese trolley is impressive!

The place is fantastic in the summer and in the winter. The 'restaurant' side has more charm than the 'bistro' side.

Look for some of the Portuguese wines or from the languedoc/ Provence region and you will not be disappointed!

One detail to add: the waiters are well 'seasoned' in being,,,,,,,rude!, don't be shocked, it is just how they are. You go for the food not for them!!

“Great atmosphere indoors or on the terrasse”
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.
