Montreux Palace is just the place to be! Its all about luxury here! I loved the room facilities, restaurants, and the entire layout - but whats most beautiful there is the view!! You can't imagine how divine it is! Staying here is like you are living in a fairytale for few days! Montreux itself if truly heaven on earth, having on top of that such hotel with sip of wine and great meal..... all you need! Im hearty recommending this stunning luxury property!

Great choice of beers to chose from with friends or colleagues after work. The atmosphere is always nice and the bar side often pretty full. For the dinner part, the menu is quite small but the quality is top notch and the presentation of the plates amazing and original. Have been there dozens of times and have never been disappointed.
And the Terrace is wonderful and peaceful in summer. Check it out!

This restaurant has a specialised menu really and I found it hard to put together a meal I really wanted. It may be that my palate is too limited but one meal here was enough for me. I can't say there was anything wrong with the food I ate, I just prefer simpler meals.

We went there for dinner. Everything is class, waiters, the decoration of the tables and the restaurant generally. It is located near Montreux in a small quiet village. We were warmly welcomed and the service was really good. They know really well the products they propose (wine, cheese, dishes). We had the duck as the main dish. Was incredible. So if you like good food and your budget allows it, go there.

As foodies, we delight in discovering daring , creative cuisine and Michelin restaurants. With this, Denis Martin was a dream pick for a valentine day date. We splurged for the Evolution menu at 380 CHF a person!!!
As one would expect we eagerly anticipated being taken on a culinary journey - stimulating all the senses.
Unfortunately while some of the dishes were delicious, the journey didn't flow very well for us.
For example, the sequencing of dishes from core swiss re-creations like cheese fondue to Thai tom yum soup, then back to cheese dishes followed by Thai inspired dishes just felt schizophrenic. There was no crescendo or peaks / troughs in the experience.
The presentation of the dishes wasn't as inspiring as expected, using the same bowls across multiple dishes which didn't really help the food shine. That being said serving Pigeon in an envelope was genius and worth talking about as were the mock cocaine dessert bags.
Despite being molecular I didn't find a profound concentration of flavor notes as I have experienced in other molecular restaurants (e.g. Cielo in Bogota)
Given the quality / value equation I'd say it was average. For us, not worth almost 1000 usd in a night.
But benefit of the doubt. I hear the place has been in business over 20 yrs. I hear that menu changes 2-3 dishes a week. So I admire the tenacity and creativity of the chef but frankly sometimes things can go wrong.
Note: If you want a fantastic culinary journey go to Maaemo in Oslo. 3 Michelin stars. Your senses will transport you to another level there. I flew all the way to Oslo to eat and was worth every euro.

This one of my favorite restaurants in Vevey. Reasons; plenty of them, service, quality of the food, price, location(center)...
I specially like the "filet de beouf,frites,legumes" . Meet is high quality and you can choose the cooking point since it is served in a hot stone where you can cook it by yourself. Rösti Negotians is also very delicious and a typical swiss dish. Profiteroles is a must

An incredible line-up of traditional and house cocktails envied by many in Switzerland! Offering simple, fun gourmet eating coupled with a wholehearted, unpretentious welcome, Funky Claude's Bar is a great place to drop by or hang out late into the night, whether you're local or just passing through the Riviera. Faithful to the world of Festival founder Claude Nobs, the decor and choice of materials invite you to settle in and chill out for an unforgettable moment at the best live venue in town.
On our first visit to Montreaux we came here with good friends (as it was highly recommended). A Saturday evening, we arrived early while it was quiet which enabled us to take a table near the entertainment. We spent the entire evening enjoying fantastic food (the burgers were amazing!), service and great music. The bar was full by the time we left late on and the atmosphere was lovely, really welcoming. Regis in particular, with his unique passion for his bar and knowledge of whisky made it a memorable experience. We will return when time permits.

I am used to Sushi being terribly overpriced in Switzerland with a poor price/quantity ratio and I have acclimated to only getting tuna and salmon sashimi in most places, but this experience was so enraging!
I ordered a couple types of fish caviar Nigiri which was well priced and tasted like any nigiri anywhere, good. I ignored the fact that I got literally a leaf of finger and LITERALLY a tiny dab of wasabi.
Then we got mixed Chirashi and this was a joke! This was the furthest thing I have ever seen from japanese food. It was three TINY slices of tuna and three TINY slices of salmon, a 'artsy' half peeled, half cut cucumber, and an under-ripe avocado half on a LARGE bed of undercooked rice. Some of the rice was still hard and did the chef realize we don't have knives to cut the cucumber? There was no seasoning choices, no sesame seeds and the fish tasted like NOTHING. I have never been this disappointed by sushi and so angry to have to pay for it.
For this I paid 22 chf. I was enraged. Everything was overpriced, the rolls were limited, and you couldn't or just sashimi on its own. The Takeout menu online is actually larger! I am a foodie and I love japanese food. The owners have no respect for the food or their clientele, they should go on google images and type in CHIRASHI!
Anyone who thinks this is actual good japanese food should definitely try UCHITOMI stores in Lausanne and geneva, you will pay much less and get much much more. If you are from North America and used to the sushi quality there, get ready to be seriously disappointed.
For two chirashi (about 22 chf each) , a miso (about 6.50 chf), and 2 orders of roe sushi (about 6.50 each), a beer and wine (7.50 each) we paid about 80 chf and were still horribly hungry because who can eat 6 tiny slices of sashimi on a giant soup bowl rice? At least put some other vegetables.

Went there one evening just before they closed. The staff was really friendly and patient even though it was late and I was probably the last order they took that day. The food was authentic and very delicious. Many thanks for this!

Lived in Montreux for some time and discovered this place by a friend. Never really took the time to write about it but lately while in Bali, and talking with some Swiss customers about my best culinary experience in the country, my memory came back to L'Auberge Communale where I spent a special moment with Mireille, my wife. Even after almost a year I like to thanks Emilie for a fantastic service, the way she advised us about the food and wine and for sure the food served. Very professionnal and friendly staff. It was all what you espect from a gastronomic restaurant, all in flavour and delicatness but rather surprising for an auberge communale. A must try and a best kept secret in the area. Even the wallet thanks you afterwards. So all the best for this new business and as we say in Bali. Suksama.
Mimi and Laurent.
