Hotel D'Angleterre is one of the finest hotels we've stayed in, and one would only hope that the restaurant that inhabits its grounds would live up to that standard. Alas, it is not to be. To be sure, the menu reads like high-end Italian, and the appetizers are okay. But the main dishes truly disappoint. My wife, an excellent cook,... More

For our first night in Lausanne we were recommended to go to L'Academia. A modern, sophisticated setting greets visitors. Traditional Italian dishes such as lasagna has a distinctive smokey twist and the truffle gnocchi is a favorite. Yum! Wine list is very good. A delicious chocolate lava cake is ideal for dessert. Limoncello is perfectly chilled.

L'Accademia is a very good Italian restaurant in Ouchy. Great Italian food, buffet of antipasti, pasta cooked to perfection al dente. Service is very good and professional. One very practical detail: it is possible to charge the meal on your rom if you stay in one of the neighboring hotels (Beau Rivage, Angleterre or Château d'Ouchy). A quick digestive walk... More

It's often disappointing to eat at hotel based restaurants, in the better ones there is sometimes a small missing level of commitment. No so L'Accademia, the food was superb and the service excellent. This should have been enough but seated outside in perfect weather overlooking the lake our experience was taken to another level. Can strongly recommend the truffle risotto.

From the moment you step into the restaurant you are made to feel welcome. Quiet, relaxed ambience with fantastic service. Scallops with Truffle were amazing. So was the venison for main course. Reasonably priced wine list also. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. .. we will be back. 😊

Great place if you want to eat near the Port. In general the food is ok, but not amazing and definitely expensive. Desserts were super tasty. Friendly staff, very professional. Probably a good place to eat with your boss or a business partner.

Four close friends enjoyed a wonderful lunch here on a Sunday in early October. The featured ingredient that week was mushrooms and the chef did them justice in a perfect risotto! Impeccable service, beautiful setting. A lovely meal.

Visited this restaurant twice in three months. Consistent quality of food and service. Equally good for a romantic dinner or a business meeting. Try the game or truffle dishes when in season.
