With its refined designer decor, matte colors and clean lines, Le Berceau des Sens is an experience itself. The prestige of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is reflected in the restaurant as excellence meets the table – in both taste and service.

Come enjoy several menus, including vegetarian dishes, in the main dining area or the private lounge. Our menus are updated regularly in accordance with the seasonality and availability of products, ensuring freshness and maximum quality. The kitchen lead by Chef Cédric Bourassin, together with his team of professionals, brings the magic of French cuisine to the table. The magic is also performed at the table, under the supervision and benevolent eyes of their teachers, our students are introduced to all the requirements of a gourmet restaurant. Without experience and sometimes with a touch of shyness, with elegance they succeed in enchanting our guests, bringing with them enthusiasm and especially motivation to make BDS a very popular place.

If you’re looking to wet your palette, head for the new bar and lounge for a delicious cocktail created by our students and our professional bar team, or choose from our extensive wine list from around the world, served by the glass.             Samuel Boissy (Chef sommelier) and Guillaume Ferté (Chef sommelier) inspire our students to experiment with unusual, but sensible wine pairings, perfectly complementing every meal.

You’re invited for an unforgettable dining experience at Le Berceau des Sens. Come witness the harmonious efforts of all teams involved, including our preparatory year students – efforts which have earned Le Berceau des Sens several rewards in the Gault & Millau Switzerland and Michelin guides.
