My husband and I decided to camp here to enjoy some beers and ended up staying for dinner too. He enjoyed the saucisse aux choux papet vaudois immensely and I had a deer dish (noisettes de cerf sauce raisinée garniture chasse) accompanied with THE BEST RÖSTI EVER. The restaurant was spacious and comfortable and it seemed to attract a steady... More

La Bavaria is located on a steep hill near the train station but it is worth the climb. It has a huge selection of bottled German beers and nice traditional food. I had the pork and rosti. Nicely prepared and tasty especially with the mustard. It was a bit dated inside and service slow but the food was wonderful.

This Olde World looking establishment is a Paulaner house but has a beer menu that covers much of Europe and as far away as Canada! It is very busy at lunchtimes and early evenings and has a good range of meals with quite a few changing special dishes. If you can get a table it's a good experience.

Great spot for a beer!! It would have been better if they offered food all afternoon instead of only certain times. Otherwise, loved it!! Lots of character with its all wood interior. Great beer selection, reasonable prices.

Good place to go for beers and a meal with the guys. The beer selection is huge, so there are lots of unusual and great options. The food is decent -- definitely on the hearty side!

Nice cozy atmosphere in an antic fashion place. Their food is just amazing. The best rosti in town and most likely in the canton! Just try it

The Bavaria is a quaint eatery in central Lausanne. A historic and rustic interior, all in wood, which does give it a charm of days gone by. It is very cozy and comfortable. They have a great selection of beers from several European countries, including Germany. Nonetheless, the menu is rather Swiss or international (Rösti and more) but far from... More

I went there on Sunday night and the menu it is limited , this I understand but until you serve the tuna on the can , I don't find very attractive and a lack of imagination. It seams like the waiters serve you and after they don't care , maybe I should try again
