I have been coming here for years but once the old owner left I have not been back until now. Frankly I will not be coming back again. The restaurant was quite quiet but we waited an hour for our main courses. When they arrived my daughter's "oreille de l'elephant" was so cold she had to send it back and... More

I had lunch there. We ordered the Wiener schnitzel which is supposed to be the gem on the menu. The food was ok but the portion was very disappointing. When I pointed out to the waiter that they might have made a mistake helping such a small piece of meat, they answered with a very polite " we don't care"... More

I had lunch here the other day with a friend. The service is fast and efficient. The food is very good, although highly priced.

We came for an early dinner as we had tickets to a 7pm show. The restaurant was still empty but the setting is very nice, we sat on the heated patio which is actually a kind of green house, or terrace all covered in glass. I ordered ravioli with ricotta, spinach and saffron. The taste was ok but there were... More

Typical swiss cafe. Silent, people almost whispering, good food, good teas. They don't accept groups of young people from the university - which is very close - to a coffee. If you are in a group of friends, don't go there: in Dorian people must be silent and calm.

We had a late dinner (after 9:00 pm) here with colleagues after a meeting. We started with a glass of champagne and all of us ordered the steak tartar a la Dorian with some drinking white others drinking red wine. The service was efficient and leisurely allowing us to eat and talk at our own uninterrupted pace. We were not... More

A nice traditional restaurant sandwiched between a couple of major roads so a noisy spot but close to the theatres and old town. Suitable for a drink and a meal. Not a destination restaurant but popular and if you are in the area, I doubt you will be disappointed.

After a cocktail party where there was not that much to eat, we decided to go to the Dorian... What a treat! We got there and sat down inside as the weather was a little cold. We chose a great bottle of wine (Dame Noire des Balisiers), and had an Italian Tartare (basil, Parmesan cheese and tartare of beef) and... More
