Cosy, lively Argentinian steakhouse in central Lausanne.
Who knows how many Aberdeen Angus born and bred in Argentina have made their way into the mouths of steak-loving Swiss over the several decades this place has been in existence. The cumulative air miles of those cows would be immense. While it’s not the chicest of Lausanne restaurants – its ranch-inspired, wood-beamed dining room is a cosy, raucous kind of place – there’s a reason it regularly gets packed out: that steak. From a modest rib-eye to a mighty T-bone, there’s a vast array of cuts on offer, cooked to your liking over an open grill and accompanied by your choice of fries, baked spud or rice. If you’re having trouble choosing, Churrasco’s set menu comprising three different cuts of meat, sides and salad for a reasonable price is a good place to start. Just don’t make the mistake of filling up too much on the cornbread and herby chimichurri dipping sauce, delicious though it is. Service in this family-run place is friendly and generous. Book ahead to get a table, particularly on weekends.
