Panoramic restaurant on the summit of Les Pléiades.

Located at the top station of  Les Pléiades, this restaurant has one of the most beautiful views in the Lac Léman region, with a sunny terrace overlooking the lake and the mountains beyond. As the nearest place to the train station and one of the few restaurants up here, it benefits from the hikers, skiers and star-gazers that flock to Les Pléiades throughout the year. The food is good, if not exceptional, with Swiss classics including fondue and meringues and decent homemade tarts and cakes. Prices aren’t bad either, for such a prime tourist location. Unfortunately, it’s often let down by slow service which, during peak season when the place is busy, can be a bit of a turn off. However if you’ve got the time, it’s well worth stopping in for a glass of wine so you can linger over that gorgeous view.
