Loved my visit to this place. Nicely decorated and friendly people. We didn't have anything to eat that evening but the bar was nice and a decent selection.

Great choice of beers to chose from with friends or colleagues after work. The atmosphere is always nice and the bar side often pretty full. For the dinner part, the menu is quite small but the quality is top notch and the presentation of the plates amazing and original. Have been there dozens of times and have never been disappointed....

The restaurant setting was fitting just right to a group of foreigners came from different countries. Rather named it as national, it's family to 'international' guests. The presentation of the food is just amazing, although the cooking and the taste is just okay, overall is still good to be recommended.

Although it took some time to serve, the food here is quite good. Not much diversity, nice for a long dinner followed by a drink.

Trendy place in Vevey for sure, nice outdoor tables. The type of fusion food that offers a bit of everything, with the right menu length. The dishes are beautifully presented though the taste is not always that spectacular. The gaspacho arrived in a dramatic frozen cloud but was far too loaded with vinegar. My chocolate & nuts mousse was nicely... More

The food is ok, but the waiters are so bad and unpolite. We have been waiting for the water half hour. On the menu more then half of dishes was not available. Just for design addicted people.

The first thing that strikes you are the tables in lovely mosaic patterns under the trees on an outdoor terrace. The lake is across the way. Young friendly waiters. Two menus possible at lunch, we had fish, very good, with a carrot salad as a starter. The best is dessert : they bring little glasses of different desserts, chocolate mousse,... More

The place to go for lunch, excellent service and outstanding quality of food. As the choices at lunch time are limited, two menus and different salads, quality will impress you by freshness, presentation and size of portions. Advance booking is recommended as it gets busy. Dinner is also a treat, even though the small choice. Go for it you will... More

quite a large indoor seating area as well as an outdoor patio area for eating at. Seems to attract young clientele. Friendly service, good food, reasonably priced for vevey-would go back
