About the restaurant Le Vieux Lausanne et bar Giraf

VENT DU NORD – Envie de découverte culinaire ? De voyages en Europe du Nord, sur les terres vickings ? Avant d’entreprendre un long périple, commencez par aller au pied de la cathédrale de Lausanne pour y tester la cuisine scandinave ! C’est là que vous trouverez le Vieux Lausanne, un restaurant atypique, spécialisé dans la cuisine scandinave (et aussi française).

GRANDE EUROPE - Carpaccio de cerf à l'huile de noix, gravelax à l'aneth, assiette suédoise d’un côté, persillade d’escargots, crème de courge ou tarte fine de l’autre… la carte fait des allers retours gourmands entre les deux cultures culinaires !

BOISSONS AU CHOIX - La carte des vins est longue comme un jour d’été ! De quoi plaire à tous les œnologues en herbe et accompagner le mieux possible les plats choisis.

They were very friendly.
Bread and sauce etc., additionally supplied a lot a lot. Also, as for the seasoning, I was asked for advice on each dish and corresponded.
It was a very reasonable price.

From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and seated at a lovely table outside on the patio. Our server Timea, was extremely friendly and professional with helpful suggestions regarding menu selections. The food and wine was delicious from our starters to our entrees and finishing with coffee service. We loved the ambiance and would recommend Le Vieux to anyone traveling to Lausanne.

Unique place in Lausanne! Must go! Cosy and traditional Swiss interior and every object or picture on the wall has a story to tell. Delicious meals and very hospitable service.

Great atmosphere, small and cozy restaurant just below Lausanne's Cathedral. The chef recommended us his signature starter with salmon and salmon tartare, and we then had an entrecôte with three sauces (the only thing which did not enthusiasm me - good but could be better) and côte de veau (fantastic). Service was great and so was our evening, we were also given a free drink upstairs at the bar Giraffe. Really recommended!

Excellent food in a pleasant medieval era building Very pleasant young staff. Only complaint is that smoking is allowed on outdoor dining area. Don't like that. Eat inside

We had reserved a table for 8.30pm and arrived at 8.00pm. The waiters were insistent on rushing our order to the point of feeling uncomfortable. The food arrived, cold which ditracted any flavor it may have had. We accidentally walked out without paying and were on our way back to pay when the owner came out to remind us. He was rude and abrupt! I wouldn't recommend eating there. Poor waiting staff, cold food and a humorless owner. Spend your money else where.

A good place to have la Chasse in the center of Lausanne. Excellent friendly service. An oldie, but a goodie.
