Nice brasserie-style restaurant, with a very old-fashioned setting and excellent food: we had the day's special and it was amazing, for a more than reasonable price. Staff was very kind and helpful and in general the atmosphere was great. It may be a bit noisy for a romantic evening, but the setting is nice.

By far one of the most established local nightlife spots in town. Watch your game, drink your beer at the bar, meet people or get a table and chat the night away. If you are lucky, you may find a table outside front of the bar and besides your beer you can also indulge in people watching. The service is... More

Have chosen the place for lunch because it is close to my office and it looks always crowded (I.e. Popular). Unfortunately it also means that it is hardly possible to talk inside. I went with my mother in low and she was clearly uncomfortable. Apart that, I appreciated quality of service and food and size of plate. Goat cheese salad... More

I like the drinks in Etoile Blanche, the atmosphere - especially outside in hot summer days, with lots of people and fun, the food is good too! I always have good memories of this place, and I go back every now and then, one of the most welcoming places in Lausanne I'd say!
