Address: L'Htel de Ville Rue d'Yverdon 1, Crissier (VD) , 1023, Switzerland
Description: When Frdy Girardet passed the torch at L'Htel de Ville on to his protg Philippe Rochat in 1996, he also passed on his philosophy. Restaurateurs often boast that they only use the freshest produce, but Rochat does exactly that - he changes his menu with the seasons so that the quality of his ingredients shines through. He believes that each dish needs only three flavours, and his unique combinations bring out the intensity of each. Ever the perfectionist, he is in the kitchen every day to check each dish before it goes out, and because of this meticulousness diners flock from all over to sample the best that Lausanne has to offer.
