Have been here before but husband booked surprise valentines supper for me and my brother and sister in law. Food was excellent as was the service and they had made a real effort to create a mood with rose petals etc. Shame about the 'Pub singer" in the corner - very very cheesy. Would go again though for the atmosphere... More

We had a table on the lakeside terrace on a warm sunny Saturday evening. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. The salad with soked salmon and prawns was very good, but my fillet steak, cooked "au point", turned out to be much too rare and difficult to eat, therefore disappointing - which was partly my own fault. My wife's steak,... More

We'd driven to the city to see the inspiration for the famous song "smoke on the water" and decided to eat lunch at the casino. I'd say the food was excellent but expensive (but the exchange rate is very low just now). Although we ate outside, if you dine here, you simply must go inside to see the bar and... More

Food excellent, service exemplary. Moreover we ate no more expensively here than at several other restaurants in Montreux during our stay. Although the service and cuisine are just the same, the inner restaurant, plush, low-lit, intimate, has a quite different atmosphere from the 'conservatory' extension. The extension is completely family-friendly, the inner area seems made for couples - er-hem!

Ok, so this is part of the casino in one of the wealthiest parts of Switzerland but the restaurant is pretty reasonable and the food is great! What you are looking for is the location, try and go in summer and sit outside between the lake and the road to the casino. On some days, the rumble of super cars... More

Wonderfully, happy, charming waitress (Nancy) - who recommended our aperitif - then we went on to have the most delicious food. Freshly cooked, and beautifully presented. Great wines too. We then moved from restaurant into the cabaret area overlooking the casino. A really great night out, fantastic food, and really happy, fun staff.

While the rest of my group was playing at the Casino de Montreux next door, I took my date to this very nice restaurant which has a good reputation and has been there for decades. We started our dinner with two appetizers: cuisse de grenouilles (frog legs) cooked in butter, garlic and parsley, and my date wanted "escargots gratine" (snails)... More

One of us took the specials, others ordered a la carte. Food was good and reasonable. The personnel was courteous. Good atmosphere. It was a Saturday night so the place was packed. I've been there many times both for lunch and dinner ever since they opened. Quality still the same high standards over the years. Next visit to Montreux I'll... More
