It's spring, good weather and chilling in this amazing town. We just sat down at this restaurant, 2 mins walking from the lake. The level of service is almost perfect and the beef tartare was amazing... With fresh fries and a good wine, what a best way to enjoy the night! I definitely advise to go there.

We went to this charming restaurant with some co-workers for lunch and I have to say that I was surprised. The place is nice and clean and the food is really good. Average price for Switzerland, good service and easy to find. The only thing that was not that good is that the kitchen closes a little early (13:30 is... More

My husband and a friend split the cote de boeuf which was excellent. My friend and several kids had the filets de perches which were delicious, although my son complained the portions were too small. Also excellent. I had the tuna tartare which was very good. We had a very nice wine for a reasonable price. The waiters were very... More

very good food (limited vegetarian options) and some really good wine. Good advice from waitress. The interior is kind of minimalist and the chairs not super comfy.

I had the lamb and my husband had the perch. The food was spectacular. We also both enjoyed local wine and a delicious chocolate dessert. Staff is friendly and even took the time to break down the French menu in English for us. Highly recommended.

This casual bistro offers more than you might expect from the plain exterior. Located a block back from the lake it seems like a local favourite and with good reason - the food is very fresh and very good. Lots of great local wines from Lavaux and some by the glass. Waiter was very friendly and helpful, even though I... More

We stopped into Le Bistro after having been shown the place on a wine tour earlier in the day. Very unassuming place and full of locals. The menu was delicious, varied and well priced. The tartar selection was fabulous! Friendly and English speaking waitstaff as well.
