If it ever happened that you were visiting Lausanne, Switzerland, I recommend a restaurant and another Cafe-Restaurant.

I have just tasted the seafood at la Suite, Lausanne. I can tell you, it is great. Simply, great.

The first expression, the atmosphere, even the clothing of the waiters is splendid; White shirts, blue jeans and the man who seems to be the owner of the restaurant or the director in a different shirt, a smart and elegant combination.

To rate the food, I ordered the same as in that 24-hours open restaurant on Av. des Champs-Élysées in Paris; Even though they are visibly more elegant in every aspect, more expensive, and more specialized in seafood with more offers on the menu, therefore, you would naturally expect a better taste, but no, it doesn't even measure up to the quality of la Suite in Lausanne.

The staff, as far as I could meet them, are a great combination: the friendly one, the stressed one, the relaxed one and even an overstressed team member, whom is always amazing to watch him organizing 30 people get their foods, drinks, and desserts at the same time – good job, man! And the young man, who looks quite new in the group and usually don’t know what to do, I can at least recommend him to be a little more aware of women, it is not bad to once kiss one if it kind felt that you like her.

Oh, I was nearly going to forget. I think, the first time I was there, I pictured how amazing it could be to sit here with A. S.'s parents but … Anyway, I didn’t know, at the time that she was ... oh, very very very fool me.

Let’s go to the second recommendation: a cozy Cafe-Restaurant. For that, I recommend Coccinelle Cafe, Lausanne: nice place, great atmosphere, three floors, so you can choose your seat at the height that most pleases you, and you even have the ability to enjoy a delicious meal there. The staff is very friendly and if I don’t talk about the taste of the coffee, it is because it has a good enough quality, so there is no need to talk about it.

I had a wonderful experience with the staff, more friendly and open to help that I ever expected from anyone who doesn’t know you.

If you would like to compare it with the restaurant I mentioned before, it is quite the same quality even though it has its own style, so expect something casual, not elegant. The only difference of quality in respect of their style that one can find is in clothing: everything is good, and for this Cafe, I can even agree with the black color of clothing, just, I think it puts too much stress on breasts. It is possible to have the same quality and style in dressing casual without that much stress on breasts. Overall, a good choice.

But let’s go to my first and last half piece of recommendation, even though these two places can help you have a wonderful experience, I believe eating and drinking doesn’t matter, what matters is whom you enjoy it with. So, in order to be with the person you love, I recommend you to even give up your life! For sure! Never doubt it!


  • La Suite: Rue du petit-chêne 28, 1003 Lausanne. +41 21 320 60 30.
  • Coccinelle Cafe: Rue Pichard 18, Lausanne. +41 21 312 08 90.

To the beautiful lady, who likes the young waiter, if it ever turns out that you succeed to marry each other – and I hope so for you two, in case you love each other – know that you have my best wishes: have a life full of wonder!
