“Not fancy but tasty food at the beach.”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

This restaurant is a summer favorite for many in the Lausanne region when they go for a swim in the lake. The salads are particularly good and the beach views are spectacular.

“Yum, yum, yum!”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

We were desperate for some good food at a reasonable price and weren't too sure about this place on first glance as it seemed a bit to casual to be any good (we assumed dodgy take away) but the BBQ smelled amazing and everyone eating seemed to be locals, plus the alfresco location was so relaxing by the water so we took what we thought was a risk and went ahead and ordered something...
I had the Chevre (Goats Cheese) salad and was so amazed by it I couldn't stop saying 'WOW' as I was eating... the baguette, the cheese the mixture of olives, lettuce, nuts and the amazing homemade dressing and seasoning was a taste sensation!
My husband had the buger which was just dripping with the most delicious sauce ever! And the fresh grilled tast of the burger was amazing too!
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Lutry or driving past. The food is impeccable and the service is friendly and relaxed. Value for money is sensational. It is another of Lutry's little hidden gems.

“Buvette de La Plage”
Reviewed 13 May 2009

At the end of the Lutry "quai" (lake shore walk) direction Montreux one of our favorite spots to either get a drink or to get a casual meal. It's a simple self-service buvette (snak-bar) but the choice of food far exceeds what you would expect from such a place (they offer all sorts of barbecued meat, perch filets, pasta, salads, homemade cakes and pie & many others). The price quality ratio is great (where else in the area can you get a rib eye steak for 23 francs?). The location is unbeatable (right by the water with a breathtaking view on the Alps) and the new owners are both nice and entertaining.
