Had a lunch there today. Place is nice, center located. We had a table in a garden next to a little fountain. All looked very nice, but quality of food is really very low, cantine level. We had one plat du jour and once salad nicoise. No pleasure at all, no taste, large portion of not very nice looking food.... More

The Theatre restaurant in the Lausanne Opera House is a pleasing modern take on a traditional Italian restaurant. It also has an extensive outside patio. The service was a little officious but the food was very good. The pizzas from the wood-fired oven, open kitchen style in the dining room, were made with fresh ingredients and turned out with just...

We (a group of almost 20) had one hour for lunch. That was quite of a challenge Le Théatre dealt with perfectly! Of course we didn't have the time for a three courses lunch. But we were done in an hour, including individual payments... Most importantly, the food was great (my steak tartare was very good) and the service faultless.... More

Since many years I was looking at the beautiful terrace of this restaurant and never ate there! Then a group of friends decided to go for a late dinner (it was almost 22.00h which for Lausanne is really late) on a nice summer evening and I really enjoyed not only the place and the magic garden where the tables are...

The restaurant is well located in the center of Lausanne with s very nice terrace. Service was good as the food we had which was tartare from salmon followed by a beef carpaccio with tartufo. Overall the place is good but not special

The ambiance is very friendly. Food is good but the mozzarella these use on the pizza must be a cheap version. Before they used to have better quality mozzarella for their piza.
