    I only had one dish: the Swiss ribeye with mushrooms and foie gras. The foie gras wasn’t fat enough. The steak was flavourful but very chewy. Having read good reviews before my visit did set my expectations high, and yet I was super disappointed.

    Love this place! The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. The garden seating is so cosy and comfortable. The menu is varied, something for everyone. Last night we couldn't decide between fish and risotto. So the boss said "leave it to me". He served the fish with a side of risotto! Fabulous! The portions are large and we always order too much because everything looks so good and is so tempting. This is a little sad because I never have space for dessert, which is also pretty amazing! There are great menus for sharing too. I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. I would highly recommend Lion D'or.

    Great service, Food is good but choose carefully. Opt more for the meat dishes which are cooked to perfection as the risotto was a bit bland. Parking is a challenge but not insurmountable. Nice, wind-protected terrace.

    High-quality, seasonal produce. Generous portions. Restaurant very busy with three birthdays taking place. Staff were a little stretched, which perhaps affected our waitress, who was quite mechanical and non-engaging. Appreciated the chocolate from one of the other waiters! Overall an excellent proposition because of the good food coming out of the kitchen and the attention to small details. You can sense the restaurant is making a real effort.

    Lovely food and bustling atmosphere. Lighting is a bit stark but that would not prevent me from returning time and time again. Le Tout Suisse dessert is possibly my favourite pudding ever! Wonderful
