Café du Vieil Ouchy

Café du Vieil Ouchy is one of the historic sidewalk restaurants in Ouchy with a traditional and warm atmosphere.
Already the exterior of the narrow building of Café du Vieil Ouchy is charming. The exposed beams, wooden furniture, welcoming staff and delicious smells of cheese fondue - one of its specialties - make you want to linger. In sunny weather, you may prefer to sit outside on the terrace, at a stone’s throw from Lake Geneva.

Cheese fondues are the café’s mainstay. But the Chef’s second specialty, lamb shank, tops the bill of the brasserie-type menu card. The waiters are fine connoisseurs of our regional wines. They also warmly recommend their star dessert: meringues with double cream and coulis from little red berries. Unbeatable value for money on the lakeside promenades of Ouchy!

This establishment has been awarded the “ Café historique de Lausanne ” label established by the city of Lausanne in 2021. An iconic café for tourists and Lausanners both, even if the interior transformations have made it somewhat more commonplace. It belongs to the very picturesque block of the old village of Ouchy. Characteristic of the long and narrow café layout.
