“Medocrity and Dishonesty”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Another tourist trap ( we should have known better) where the food is mediocre at best and an attempt is made to get you to leave a "pourboire" (tip) hoping that the unsuspecting tourist will not know that the service is included. The credit card receipt has a line for "pourboire" and does not include the statement required by Swiss law that service is included.

“Powdered hot chocolate in Switzerland”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We ordered hot chocolate in the country famous for its chocolate. We got a cup of luke warm milk and a sachet of chocolate to add ourselves. We did and it was too cold to drink so we asked if we could have another one that was hot. The waiter apologised and took them away. He returned with our same drinks microwaved hot, we know thanks to the chipped mug I had. We planned to eat there later on but after that experience didn't bother.

“Ok, good location, poor service”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

We had pizzas for dinner here. It was quite over priced although I guess you pay for the location. We had dinner after looking round the Christmas market. The restaurant is in the middle of the market and overlooks the lake. The good restaurants were fully booked so if you are planning a trip to montreux it would be best to book up your restaurants in advance. The food was fine I think the only disadvantage was the service was very slow. This wasn't the serving of the food but more things like getting the bill, ordering food and ordering an extra drink. It was quiet so not sure why it was so slow.

“Nice, but not special”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant, and everything was just fine. It is definitely not a fantastic restaurant, but quite sufficient for a quick lunch. We shared a pizza, which was split by the kitchen on two plates, which I found very nice and convenient. We also ordered a mixed salad, which was very good. Based on our experience, I think a one or two dot rating is unfair. The food was god, the waiter courteous and helpful. This is not a place you would go for a romantic meal or to enjoy a 2" thick filet mignon, but again, for a quick lunch with a nice view on the lake, it was quite nice. Enjoy.
