Nowadays, I check every restaurant I go to with Tripadvisor and rarely get disappointed. However le "Café des Bouchers" was recommended to my colleague and I by a friend so I didn't check it online. And what a mistake. When we arrive for diner, the restaurant was nearly empty. The only thing we had was a hello not even a... More

Service is slow and deplorable. Can't pay extra to have French fries with my tartare. Waited 30 min to have two pieces of toast. Do not recommend.

You are right, at midday we do not serve french fries. Maybe it's because the tartare is self suffisant ;-) More

They don't speak english. Me(foreigner) and colleague (local) ordered same dish(steaks). It is two big peaces of meat, really tasty. We both didn't finish it. My friend asked them in French to pack it out(to go). Waitress just throw it out... And told him, he didn't ask(

The place has been renovated. Beautiful warehouse lights hang down from the high ceiling, walls painted, etc. Menu prices went up a little as well but quality hasn't followed. My family ordered Tartare de Boeuf which came still in a generous portion, but the toasts served were stone hard. The Gambas à l'Ail were floating in oil, no taste of... More

I ordered the Brazilian burger, and it was the biggest and probably the most delicious burger I've ever had. The fries however weren't that great.

After been to the café des bouchers three times and having three bad experiences, I can say with confidence that this place is not worth visiting.

We ordered the Château Brillant which was really good but all this served by the most unfriendly waitress, could easily ruin the experience.

Went there a couple of times when living in Lausanne. Don;t go there if you are vegetarian ;-) Opening hours go very late. Meat is always large and very good, but always undercooked or overcooked...
