Reviewed 31 January 2018

In the very center of town a classical restaurant with bland setting, offering the usuals, meat, fish, pasta, you name it...The experience was rather convincing with decent products, although nothing exceptional. The cafe gourmand was pretty rich and tasty. Service is efficient if not specially friendly. Prices a bit high but acceptable. Not a bad address in restaurant-poor Yverdon.

By chance we discovered Kalaya looking for a lunch place in Yverdon. Kids menu at CHF 13 and Filets de Perche with a menu salad or soup at CHF 28. Horse Entrecôte with Gorgonzola sauce tender and delicious CHF 24.50. Pizzas starting CHF 16. Quality is excellent, servings are large and staff is friendly. Not a gastronomic place, and interior decorated on the cheap side, but good value. We can recommend.

I have ordered a indian tartare and then they served me an Italian one even after I told them that it was wrong. Besides, the french fries and the toasts were cold and the wine glasses were broken...

My wife and I went to Kalaya for lunch. The restaurant is perfectly situated on a street corner directly opposite the château. There was a choice of 4 different dishes on the set menu - we chose the ravioli with 4 cheeses (17 francs), and the venison (21 francs). Each dish came with a salad - smothered in dressing whether you wanted it or not!
We then waited 30 minutes for our mains, which wasn't acceptable considering (a) they were set menus, and (b) there were only 2 or 3 other diners in the lounge.
The meals were tasty and of decent proportion, but the venison was very tough - in fact, I couldn't eat one of the medaillons. My wife pronounced her ravioli to be very filling.
Possibly because of our long wait, the restaurant was generous in providing us with a second bread basket while we waited.
Something I found disconcerting was the number of flies in the dining lounge. I would have thought this basic hygiene issue should have been addressed well beforehand.
All in all, an average dining experience. I wouldn't be rushing back to Kalaya.
