As fans of good wines, Vaudois people also appreciate good cuisine and are happy to put on a great spread whenever the opportunity arises! Indeed, the Lake Geneva Region rates among the most reputed table arts regions worldwide.
Whether with local specialities, traditional dishes, business meals or gastronomy banquets, the food offered by many catering establishments is second-to-none in terms of quality and creativity, like at the Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, now run by Franck Giovannini.
But the Lake Geneva Region boasts many other prestigious restaurants, such as Pont de Brent in Brent-sur-Montreux, where Stéphane Décotterd officiates, Bernard Ravet’s L'Ermitage in Vufflens-le-Château, Denis Martin’s restaurant in Vevey, Carlo Crisci’s Le Cerf in Cossonay, and Anne-Sophie Pic’s restaurant at the Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne.
There are a total of 97 restaurants selected by the GaultMillau. With 1365 points and 17 stars (the Guide Michelin), the Lake Geneva Region is the capital of Swiss Gastronomy.
