If you want the best local delicacy of filets de perches, fresh from the lake this is the only place to go in Nyon. It’s delicious. Served with amazing frites. We also had a delicious squid for starter. Lovely setting on a quiet back street, perfect for dinner for two or a group. Service always impeccable and an air of Swissness - which is said with affection not criticism!

We went here as a couple, the restaurant was 3/4 full.
Basic wooden tables with paper mats.
Service nice and prompt, delicious starter(foie gras on freshly toasted bread plus small tasty salad), had “ joues de cochon” with perfectly cooked vegetables and home made Fries, and my husband the “rognons de veau” with a mouthwatering sauce and vegetables as well and fries to share. The portion were perfect for our appetite(quick big). We took a “fromage blanc” served with red fruits and the” île flottante caramel et amandes” once again, just delicious.
The chef came briefly to greet all the guests.
We’ll definitely be back!

What a dreadful experience... the waiter answered in broken English when we spoke French to him! That is so rude. Not that it should make a difference but we do, like it or not, live here. The meal took forever to arrive. The substitute lamb for the souris d'agneau/ lamb shank was hard lumps of meat. The entrecôte was below average and the price, including wine and water, was 148 CHF. Absolutely appalling value and service. If you want a decent meal in Nyon, go to O' Les Terrasses du Lac or Hôtel Le Rive.

I have eaten here several times and the food has always been good. However, I was disappointed by the customer-unfriendly attitude quite common in this area. It was a balmy, Friday evening and the sun was still out. A few outside tables were empty. My wife and I enquired about a table at around 20h45 only to be told off that service had ended at 20h30! On a beautiful summery evening. Fortunately we found a far more welcoming reception at the nearby La Nautique and were happy to spend our money there (read separate review).

WE have been going to this restaurant when we are in France near Geneva. Probably have been eating at Cheval Blanc at least 4 times per year the last 5 years. Neve we get tired to it and always love it. This a small restaurant where the chef owner makes some of the best dishes in French Switzerland. Also they have the best Filet de Pesch; the little Lack Lemon (Lake Geneva) perch, of all the restaurants that serve this fish.
