Traditional Restaurants in the Canton de Vaud

Culinary specialities abound in the canton of Vaud and appeal to tourists and natives alike. Authentic or modified traditional recipes fill the menu card of our selection of restaurants, be they modern, century-old, in the countryside, the mountains or downtown

Cabbage sausage, papet vaudois, fondue moitié-moitié, lakefish, Vacherin Mont d'Or PDO from the oven, grape concentrate and Vully cake always taste best when they are prepared according to an ancestral family recipe or in a traditional inn. Follow our guide of the best restaurants that specialise in terroir products and you’ll be won over.

Even palates accustomed to traditional recipes are able to discern the Chef’s little personal touch or an ingredient they would never have thought of. Not to mention the Vaudois wines that never cease to surprise when they are skilfully combined with the dish that is just right for them. The warm and friendly atmosphere goes hand in hand with terroir gastronomy, be it in a mountain chalet, a country inn or a downtown restaurant.
