Le Montagne Review
This elegant, intimate restaurant is set in a restored home in the wine village of Chardonne. Perched high on a hill, it offers a view of the lake (from part of the dining room) that is worthy of a champagne toast. Traditional French dishes like beef medallions and oven-roasted pigeon are straightforward, smartly garnished, and paired with fresh herbs and vegetables. A well-composed wine list of Swiss and international selections offers breadth to match. Those who like a stroll before and after dinner can take the mostly flat five-minute walk to the funicular, an easy way to access these upper reaches.
