“The staff are really nice! The portion is big and relatively cheap in Switzerland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

The restaurant located in a residential area, and the staff dont know how to speak English. We try to communicate with hand language and by guessing. The staffs were very very friendly and nice even we had language barrier. We ordered salad, filet of perch, and the chef special pasta. The pasta portion was really big and was really yummy! We were really surprise abt the portion and it was only 18.5 CHF with such a big portion. The filet of perch was delicious as well, very soft, and fresh! Overall we paid around 59.9 CHF, which is the cheapest meal we had in Switzerland. I think it was because we didn't order wine, and other expensive stuff. The chef even came up to us to ask us about the food in French. Overall experience was good even though we need to guess what was on the menu. Love this local lovely restaurant!

“New Italian Management - one of the best pastas ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

We went for lunch and we were a bit disappointed that it was under a new management since Sep. 2013. The manager is Mr. Pino, formerly for many years in "Quatre Seasons" also in Montreux.
The cafè part is standard decoration and the dining room is clean and neat. We had no reason to worry, as it later showed.
When we asked what choices of bottles of red wine were available the waiter brought out 4 bottles to choose from. We selected a Cornavin 2012 from the Vallée at CHF 39. (The owner later recommended a Merlot from Ticino for next time we visit).
There was a Festival du Pates, with 6 interesting pastas on offer and we chose the Tortellini Bettina (Safran sauce, Ham and Cream). We shared a half portion for the two of us (CHF14). Luckily so, as it was a huge portion and one of the best pastas we have ever tasted! Perfectly 'al dente', perfectly balanced between the safran and ham...really nice, and we could have left right there and then...happy.
Besides the Pastas, the menu is pretty standard. We were told the menu is being revised.
We then had Filets de Perche (CHF 24). This was prepared with Olive Oil, Lemon and fresh Parsley and unusually served with a tasty Spinach, prepared in the same way. The French Fries were perfect (not a hint of old oil near them).
Mr. Pinot came out to accept our compliments for a good meal and offered us a Limoncello with our coffee. The only "negative" was the coffee (Denko), which needs to be improved to make this a meal on top of the scale. The bill was CHF 108...and we will certainly be back!
