Open only during the summer season, La Terrasse is one of those ‘dive’ gems you didn’t know existed in the Lausanne area. Located right on the port Vieux Stand (neighboring Lutry’s larger port), this little refuge under the trees is exclusively outdoor and reminds us of something you’d find under the pines of St. Tropez right on the sea.
The energy is relaxed, almost bohemian–but the clientele range from business men in suits on their lunch breaks, to families with young children running around on the pebbles, as well as retired couples coming in from a morning of sailing. Regardless of your current standing, one thing is clear: La Terrasse is a must on sunny days.
When to go: Because of their exclusively outdoor seating (it’s called “La Terrasse” for a reason), make sure to go on a sunny/non-rainy day. Lunch seating is just as popular as dinner, so make sure to get a reservation.
Who to go with: Friends, family, lovers, your dog.
What to wear: Whatever you’re comfortable in. Seriously, anything goes.
What to order: Check out their “Suggestions” board. We ordered an insanely delicious grilled octopus and a melon prosciutto fresh goat cheese salad with fig confiture. They also have super good pizzas that are all available as a gluten-free option too (!).
