The Fondue is it worth to have it there, you can reach it from the Hotel Regina by a walk from maximum 10 min. It's in the city of Lausanne.

I visited the cafe romand last week with my co-workers as an official dinner in Lausanne. The atmosphere and interior was nice and made me feel it is swiss, but food was not good. We ate traditional veals and swiss-fondue. Both were not good. Especially,...More

The service was excellent and the food was very good. Reminded me of Lausanne in the 70's. Felt nice to be in a decor that is typically Swiss and not the cold modern standard decoration that has over taken the world. Not complicated to know...More
