“Too expensive for what it is”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

The food isn't bad at all but you feel ripped off to pay so much with the excuse that it's "healthy" food. Healthy doesn't mean expensive seen the portions.

“Great brunch on Sunday - Nice service and cosy place”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Côté Jardin, is one of the four restaurants located in the five star hotels called "The Lausanne Palace & Spa". Normally during the week, they served at midday a Mediterranean buffet or you can choise the card. The Sunday, the buffet is served and quiet famous. Reservations is therefore mandatory one week in advance to have a table.
Service is professionel and attentive. The decoration is cosy.
At the beginning they offer you a cup of champagne and during the brunch every drinks, wine, coffee is included.
They have hudge buffet of appetizers (salad, cheese, eggs, delicatessen, fruits, e.g.). Then for the plate, you have time St-Jacques shells, fish, bresse chicke, roast veal with wild garlic) Several side dishes also available.
Then, Dessert buffer very famous, with everything possible and fresh juices.
Also to mention a big variety of bread.

Great moment. To recommand if you visit this city

“Yummilicious Lunch”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Love going there at lunch time during summer: great menu, service and atmosphere! The setting is superb: you can enjoy your lunch on a wooded terrace overlooking Lake Geneva and the Alps :) And I simply love their dessert buffet :) Just make sure you book in advance if you want to get a table!

“Excellent Food & Wines”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

The Salads were truly excellent, as was the choice of wines. The rolls and breads were fresh and hot. Would recommend highly. But, like Commander's Palace in New Orleans, don't go too, too hungry, or you'll be eating the silver, and the table cloth.

“Go for the daily lunch Buffet in this restaurant of a five stars hotel!!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

The wonderful buffet and fresh garden side of the LP is really worth. The setting is beautiful and lovely terrace. Nice place for a business lunch with clients or lunch and / or romantic dinner.

In the dishes offered at the buffet, I enjoyed the smoked salmon, various salads, dips, cheeses palette and desserts to die for (fresh fruit, fruit salad, various pies and cakes with cream pie with a Delicious tatin). I would go back one evening to test the card.

Pallets of cheese

Delicious desserts - (fresh fruit - fruit salad - different pies and cakes - creams / delicious Tarte Tatin)
Areas for improvement:
  - Please do not arrive too late because the hot start very quickly and the risk is that there was more.
- Reservations are required under penalty not find available tables
