Pinte Besson is in a lively downtown quarter of Lausanne near Place de la Riponne. Opened in 1780, the restaurant is steeped in history that the service staff likes to present when serving excellent Swiss dishes.
Pinte Besson boasts a vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows and historical pictures. Regulars and visitors like to come to Lausanne’s oldest restaurant for a treat. The restaurant’s specialty is traditional cheese fondue, which comes as moitié-moitié or flavoured with morels and brandy. But you can also order traditional dishes such as rösti and croûte au fromage. Meat lovers are likely to choose a steak or seasonal suggestions: game in autumn, cabbage sausage with Papet Vaudois in winter.
In summer, sip a drink on the nice little terrace and enjoy the sun and the lively atmosphere of this busy street.
