Stumbled across this place whilst out. Looks more like a bar than a Cafe - but they also have a decent food menu (fish, pasta, steaks etc) as well as a good choice of beers/wines - and not expensive. Service was very good/friendly - overall a good night!

I don't think I have ever experienced a worse meal in my life - the service is horrendous, taking over 2 hours to bring an amuse bouche, of a fee cold vegetables?

After discussing with the manager, I have never felt such rude service. Absolutely unacceptable. He simply told us it was our fault as we were a big table.

We ordered from a set menu, and half the courses were not received - we had to ask for them to come.

We also ordered a carafe of tap water. Originally received a bottle of sparkling water, told the waiter we wanted a jug of tap water (I am with French speakers, so the language barrier was not an issue), 5 minutes later we eventually received a warm carafe of tap water. We informed the waiter, and he didn't even make a comment or an apology, just have us a dirty look.

Even writing this review has irritated me.

Please do not visit this restaurant, there are much better options in Lausanne, with a better service received at Mcdonalds.
