Needed a quick dinner without any fuss, which de la Riviera delivered well on. Food is average, but well cooked and fresh salads. Service is on the slow side and the atmosphere depressing. Guess they survive on tourists enjoying the view, locals who more enjoy the beer than the food and people like me who anyway bring laptops for dinner and want to eat decent food for decent prices with good wifi.

Great location in Ouchy; convenient for parking, the lake and the metro up into the city centre. Food was good. I had a salad, which was huge and very fresh, my wife chose ham and rosti with Gruyeres. Service was desperately slow. Ten minutes to get a menu. Another fifteen to order. You get the idea. When we arrived, it wasn't even busy. Among the slowest service I have ever experienced.

This restaurant is in a fantastic place, directly on the Lausanne Ouchy port and with the possibility to eat outside during summer. There is a big toll parking in front at the restaurant and a metro station really close.
The interiors are a little bit old, but they are not ugly. The service was good and cordial and the menu has a lot of choices.
The kitchen is very slow but the food is tasty and the plates are cured and nicely presented.

For sure there are better restaurant in the same zone but La Rivera is not the last choice.

Chose this restaurant has it has a fantastic position at the corner of the marina promenade, looked busy and menu looked good value.
The service was very slow to start - about 10 mins, then only when i asked to order. After that it improved quite a bit.
Chose a "local dish" as described in the menu. Swiss sausage with onion gravy and Swiss Roti potatos. Well, One sausage which was very meaty - good, but not much flavour. The Roti were of the "McDonalds" variety - rondals of frozen potatos - very poor.
Could not reccommenr for more than a coffee or beer or snack.

La Riviera is a great place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon or evening. Overlooking both, the main road and the lake, this restaurant offers great outside seating.

The road is the "show off" road in Lausanne, you get to see the most expensive cars and bikes zooming up & down this road.

Beer is around 6 CHF/ glass which is reasonable by Swiss standards.
