Restaurant L'Olivier La Tour-de-Peilz

Restaurant L’Olivier Revisited

One of my favorite restaurants on the Swiss Riviera is quietly tucked away in La Tour-de-Peilz between Montreux and Vevey. L’Olivier is located in the Hostellerie Bon Rivage and features some of the most impressive views of Lake Geneva from its terrace paired with a changing seasonal menu that capitalizes on local ingredients.

Buvette La Saletta

Buvette de Saletta

Located about 45 minutes outside of Montreux in the Canton of Fribourg is a hidden gem of a mountain restaurant in the town of Les Paccots.

Fairmont Le Montreux Palace

Fairmont Le Montreux Palace

I have been staying at Le Montreux Palace annually for many years now and can honestly say that each time is absolute perfection.  There is just something about this hotel that keeps me coming back year after year.  This last visit was no different with the exception of us spending ten days at the hotel to end what was the perfect visit to Switzerland to celebrate…

Montreux Jazz Cafe

Montreux Jazz Café

My annual visit to Montreux always yields surprises and this trip was no different. Sadly, this trip marked the end of Harry’s Bar which was undergoing a renovation to re-open as Funky Claude’s Bar while we were there. This was the end of an era for me as many a fabulous evening (and meals) was had at Harry’s so I was very sad to see it go.
