Brasserie du Grand Chêne Review
4 Star Rating
27 January 2015Brasserie du Grand ChêneTags: Lausanne, Switzerland, French reviewsThe Bill: £72 per head

Brasserie du Grand Chêne is another of the restaurants located inside Lausanne Palace. The restaurant has a typical Parisian style decor, and is refreshingly casual. Upon entering the restaurant we noticed the tables looked to be packed in side by side quite tight. We were a little unsure at this point how enjoyable the evening would be, although I can honestly say it didn't disappoint.

The service was fast and furious, but always came with a smile. We were made to feel very welcome and were not rushed out of the door after we had finished. The food was simple but well executed, and although The Brasserie du Grand Chêne isn't the finest looking restaurant we would still recommend a visit here as we had a very enjoyable evening.

Our chosen wine for the evening was Prestige Premières Côte Sauvignon, Blanc Et Muscadelle, 2011. A lovely, velvety red wine, with a strong aroma of berries and a palatable, rich flavour.

“A great way to spend an evening dining in a Parisian setting.”

To start we had Duck Foie Gras Terrine, with Celeriac and Granny-smith Apple Salad. The apple salad was lovely, a very enjoyable compliment to the Foie Gras Terrine. My partner had the Ginger and Lime Fresh Tuna Tartare with Wakame salad. The Wakame adds an interesting flavour to the salad, very enjoyable and I recommend it if you've never tried this.

For main dishes we had the Grilled Fillet of Beef, with “Béarnaise” Sauce, and Potatoes au Gratin. I really enjoyed the beef fillet, a lovely cut and cooked just right. We also opted for the Herb-rubbed Lamb Chops with Green Vegetables and "Marseillaise" Potatoes. Another splendid meat dish, the lamb chops were very tender and flavoursome.

Thankfully we had room for dessert, and opted for a Vanilla Crème Brûlée which was just divine. And, a Lemon Meringue Pie, a gorgeous fluffy meringue with a crust base. Delicious desserts, a great end to a great evening.

We really enjoyed our evening at Brasserie du Grand Chêne. Certainly a must visit if you’re a guest at the hotel, and a great way to spend an evening dining in a Parisian setting.
