About the restaurant Café des Tramways

SIMPLICITÉ ET BONHEUR – Situé avenue des Morges, le Café des Tramways vous plonge instantanément dans un cadre de brasserie française typique, où l’on aime la guinguette et les nappes à carreaux. Oui, mais en version cossue.

INFLUENCES RÉGIONALES – Forts de leurs racines régionales et de leur expérience dans de nombreuses adresses gastronomiques en France et en Suisse, les deux associés Guillaume et Thomas vous convient à retrouver des plats gourmands éternels comme la soupe à l’oignon, le coquelet rôti, les escargots au beurre persillé… Oui, mais avec un raffinement exquis.

TERRASSE – Niché dans une maison d’angle, le Café des Tramways jouit d’un ensoleillement maximum. À toute heure, vous pourrez profiter de sa terrasse pour vous désaltérer. Oui, c’est aussi un Café.

Nice, but not really what I expected it to be. Dishes correct, but nothing really special. Restaurant itself looks very old and shabby.

Very pleasant and comfortable neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and service. Steph was solicitous and attentive, and sufficiently fluent in English to understand our requests and compliments. Highly recommended.

My wife and I went for dinner. The restaurant is a bit old-fashioned (furniture from the 80's at best) but the atmosphere is really nice, with excellent live piano music and an extremely friendly and polite waiter.

The food is fairly good, although the menu tends to lean towards the heavy side, but then again they make no mistery about their cuisine being bistrot inspired.

Prices are in line with Lausanne, but quality/price ratio is surely higher.

Overall an extremely pleasant experience which I would recommend to anyone in Lausanne

It was my third time at this restaurant, and that is for a reason: Delicious food, smiling faces, warm atmosphere, last but not least fair prices, especially when combined with the discount from the Fork. Highly recommended.

We both had steaks which were good portions. presentation could have been better. Place in need of a makeover. The live music was a nice touch and not something you would find anywhere else in lausanne. (pianist playing a baby grand piano).
