    A warm service and friendly explanations. As a matter of act, cuisine is well done, with a special note to their risotto.

    Short but correct menu, Vevey good food and nice & attentive service. Cool setting but quite empty, which was a pity. With the 50% offer, the price-quality ratio is unbeatable!

    Very good food for lunch at Universal. The menu shows limited possibilities but very fresh. Deserts are homemade and very tasteful z

    This was the first time back to Cafe Universal since the ownership has changed and we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly, the food excellent and portions generous. We will be back!

    We were a table of 6 people and we all ordered different dishes... pizza, past and fish. The quality of the food, Italian style, was good and we had a great service. However the decoration of this place does not match the restaurant’s style. Anyone who used to go to Universal 10 years ago will be disappointed... however the new tenant is trying hard to offer something new and they deserve a chance. I definitely recommend this place and I would go back.

    This spot changed hands in September and I’m VERY happy to have discovered it. Friendly, helpful service, delicious Italian food in a typical retro brasserie decor.

    I knew the French restaurant before, now the space is the same but the cuisine Italian. As Italian myself I appreciated the originality of the dishes (swordfish pasta was excellent) and the friendly attitude of the staff. Only downside 1/2l of filtered water for 5chf seems exaggerated. Will come back!
