Although it took some time to serve, the food here is quite good. Not much diversity, nice for a long dinner followed by a drink.

I love this kind of easygoing atmosphere, a bit of an alternative look but very professional in terms of service and cuisine. It has a great terrace that is perfect to drink fantastic mojitos with your friends. We only tasted appetizers that were very yummy and well presented! Service was good and fast (despite the busyness).

Trendy place in Vevey for sure, nice outdoor tables. The type of fusion food that offers a bit of everything, with the right menu length. The dishes are beautifully presented though the taste is not always that spectacular. The gaspacho arrived in a dramatic frozen cloud but was far too loaded with vinegar. My chocolate & nuts mousse was nicely... More

The food is ok, but the waiters are so bad and unpolite. We have been waiting for the water half hour. On the menu more then half of dishes was not available. Just for design addicted people.

The first thing that strikes you are the tables in lovely mosaic patterns under the trees on an outdoor terrace. The lake is across the way. Young friendly waiters. Two menus possible at lunch, we had fish, very good, with a carrot salad as a starter. The best is dessert : they bring little glasses of different desserts, chocolate mousse,... More

The place to go for lunch, excellent service and outstanding quality of food. As the choices at lunch time are limited, two menus and different salads, quality will impress you by freshness, presentation and size of portions. Advance booking is recommended as it gets busy. Dinner is also a treat, even though the small choice. Go for it you will... More

It was ages since I hadn't gone to the National. Everything is changed but it's still a magical place. The decor is a bit fancy and just looking around is something. We just went for the menu and found the cuisine very inventive. Everything was good and the prices were fair. A lovely supper.
