The restaurant

Lausanne’s leading Italian restaurant, L’Accademia, on the shores of Lake Geneva, welcomes you into its friendly atmosphere and warm designer decor.
Dark wood, ochre tones and Murano glass pendant lights create a soft, cosy atmosphere. Most of the dining staff are Italian and offer a professional service tinged with Mediterranean warmth.

Italian flavour

In this welcoming and distinguished setting, you can enjoy traditional Italian dishes with a creative twist. Follow in the footsteps of Lord Byron and sample dishes inspired by typical Italien flavours.

All meals are always prepared with fresh,seasonal ingredients carefully selected by our chef Andrea Gaia. Attentive service staff, a fine selection of Italian wines and themed evenings (e.g. featuring porcini mushrooms, truffles or regional wines) make L’Accademia one of Lausanne’s top restaurants.

Gourmet breakfast

The lavish Byron Buffet prepared with fresh and local produce allows people to follow in the writer’s footsteps by feasting on the gourmet flavours of England, Switzerland and Italy.
The coffee is served as it would be in Rome – but with a view of Lake Geneva as an added bonus.

From Monday to Friday. 
Breakfast buffet from 6.30am to 10am.
Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 10.30am.

Truffle in the spotlight
