While traveling in Switzerland, my family and I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner because of the positive reviews of its fondue. They did not disappoint. We all had an outstanding dinner, but what stands out is the service. Our waitress was just wonderful. When she heard my American accent, she switched to English, but when I explained... More

We set out for another restaurant with a higher tripadvisor rating, but it was closed on Monday, and the taxi driver recommended Le Museum. It turned out to be ideal. Contrary to a previous reviewer, we found the racklette meal tasty and filling and ordering the local wine by the "pot" brought down the price. The atmosphere was,as others have... More

It's a old-fashionned restaurant but really cute and friendly. Waitresses (because I went there 5 times and it was always women who was serving) are really efficient. The food is really good I usually take the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

service is good and the place hold a lot of history .we ate in a vineyard cave with a nice ambiance. The cheese is tasty and the quality of meat for the "charbonnade" (tradditionnal swiss) is amazing. Also the choice of wine is huge . Go give a try.

I was here on travelling and on random selection I took a dinner here. Good quality and courtesy of service. I tested a fondue bourghignon at mushrooms and potatoes together. The price could be less consider the meat quantity.

We went to Montreux for one day and decided to have a good dinner. Since we were familiar with Fondue, another dish was under consideration: Raclette. What a disappointment . For more than 60 francs you will get several slices of cheese, pickles and a small bowl of potatoes. This is the restaurant's version of a famous French dish. The... More

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent. When we first walked in the door we were overwhelmed by the pungent odor of what we presumed was the cheese. The potatoes gratin had seven types of cheese and was fantastic. The steak was tender and juicy and the fondue was everything you could want. I would recommend this restaurant to... More

We booked by email whilst we were in Montreux. It was a terrible rainy evening and we weren't sure they had received the booking as we got no confirmation but we decided to chance it anyway.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and the good reviews coupled with the picture showing the charbonnade (basically a table BBQ) made us make a reservation. The resto is so lovely inside, very cosy with a very welcoming atmosphere and the staff extended the welcome – they were extremely friendly and smiley. We couldn’t resist ordering the beef charbonnade and... More

The Museum is situated in a historical building in the old town of Montreux and it is less than 10 minutes walking distance from the main train station.

Founded in the early years of the worldwide known Montreux Jazz Festival The Museum has been the place to be for many internationally known stars like Mick Jagger and David Bowie to name but a few.

The setting is traditionally Swiss with an authentic atmosphere. In summer a peaceful court invites families and friends to enjoy a meal in a relaxing environment.

The Museum accepts groups of up to 150 people and it is the ideal place for family or company events, but it is also a romantic place if you'd like to spend a privileged moment with your loved one.

The Museum honours the Swiss cuisine with many different cheese and meat fondues of the highest quality. You could also try their famous' Charbonnade', a charcoal grill on which you grill your meat according to your own taste! Most of the menus are served with the outstanding potato gratin made with chef's secret ingredients (this includes 10 different Swiss cheeses).

We look forwards to welcome you soon !
