We stopped at this restaurant after our walk from Chexbres through the vineyards. The resection and service was not very welcoming. We had a light lunch of mussels and beef soup with ravioli which was quite good. Prices are high, but it is Switzerland. The tables are very close together. I'm sure it would be a lot more pleasant dining... More

Pleasant location on the Lavaux wine trails for a lunch under a canopy of trees. Lovely setting and good service.

This is a restaurant which definitely caters to locals! Nothing warm about any of the servers. Very warm to the locals. Good was good, one dish we had was the fish of the day, and some nice fresh vegetables. Restaurant was very busy at lunch, nice terrace. The many choices of ice cream deserts were all great. I always ask... More

This restaurant is nicely located near to a train stop and just around the Lavaux region. If you plan your journey just right, like what I did, you would end up having dinner here after sampling the wines of the vineyards. The food is great although it was on the expensive side and you get your choice of dining inside... More

We have eaten here twice and enjoyed it. Delicious homemade Italian food. Swiss fish dishes are good too. Our server didn't speak English but was sweet and charming, and we got by just fine. The best part is the atmosphere. The outside terrace is magical in the evening. be sure to reserve.

The food, view and location are beautiful! You definitely need to be able to order in French to be understood and once they serve the food they never return. Don't be shy about asking for the bill or you'll be sitting there for a long time. Enjoy

Despite the pleasant terrace with lake and mountain views, poor service ruins this restaurant. It is the kind of service where you feel like you are being purposely ignored, and your every request seems to be a rude interruption for the waiters. The food was fine -- typical Swiss lakeside menu at the usual prices -- but not good enough... More

We had a lousy experience at this restaurant. The wait staff was unfriendly and pretentious. We made a reservation well in advance for an early dinner, and were seated at the table located farthest from any views in an empty restaurant. Immediately after we were seated, a pair of locals showed up and were seated at a great table with... More
