Good food,nice view, good service, good wines maybe a bit old-fashion clients. If they find a way to rejuvenate this place, I would give a 5/5.

Had lunch with friends outside on the terrace overlooking lake Geneva. Food and service was good. Selection of wine not very good. The rose wine we wanted they didn't have and were given an inferior Swiss one. The fish we wanted they ran out off .On the whole a food experience. I recommend the place.

My party of three only enjoyed breakfast that was part of our room expense, and it was delicious. I'm sending this mostly to apologize for my error in the name of the hotel in my review of our stay at the hostel, the BON RIVAGE. The menu for the other meals looked inviting, but it was Jazz Fest time, and... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way around Lake Geneva. The restaurant is downstairs in the Hotel Bon Rivage. We got there early at about 12:30 on Saturday and got a table for 2 with a view of the lake without booking. We were not too hungry so both had the Salade Fraicheur which had soft warm cheese, ham,... More

I had diner at L'Olivier and the experience was great. Close to the lake shore in a charming hotel. The service was kind and efficient and the food was very good. Great oysters, fish from the lake and lamb grilled the way I asked. I recommend and is one of the best in the region.

Very nicely located restaurant, just next to the lake with an amazing view. The food was good, unfortunately the 2 times the plates arrived while we had a smoke outside and much too fast between the courses. Furthermore the service staff was not that knowledgeable and didn't even know what a dessert wine is, despite the fact they had it... More

I used to live in La Tour-de-Peilz and I was very lucky to be close to this restaurant. We used to eat there at least once a month - exceptional food (menu changes once a month as far as I remember), great service and very good selection of wines. During the summer you can eat on the terrace with amazing... More

I go to L'Olivier in the summer time, when it's possible to eat on the Terrasse, which is simply beautiful. I have a very personal relationship to this place as before being a hotel and restaurant it was a pension for elderly people run by nuns. And my grand parents used to live there and my mother worked there and... More

Friends booked a table and then pulled out so we decided to go anyway. Restaurant is in lovely old hotel and a beautiful situation overlooking lake. We went on a Saturday lunchtime and have to say atmosphere was quite stuffy. Service and food however were exceptional.
