The place to be

This renowned establishment dates as far back as 1948, where it also functioned as a bar/restaurant. Restaurant le Museum has a strong affiliation with the Montreux jazz scene. Originally both a nightclub and a restaurant, it was co-founded in 1965 by the founder of the Montreux Jazz festival, Claude Nobs, and Karl Iverson, who worked to restore it to its original folkloric atmosphere.

People from as far as Sion, Fribourg and Geneva would come here to dance the night away. The legendary establishment has in the past welcomed some of the biggest names in music including world-famous rock stars David Bowie and Mick Jagger, to name but a few.

To this day, people flock from afar to indulge in some of the outstanding, satisfying dishes on offer that will definitely not disappoint.

Just like our cheeses, the quality of our meat is a hallmark of the restaurant. We provide the freshest quality meats, as demonstrated in some of our main dishes such as the BBQ grill, where finely sliced pieces of raw beef fillet are brought to your table to be grilled. Alternatively, why not opt for one of our various meat fondue dishes, where thin slices of raw meat are placed on your table to be cooked and dipped in the fine broth alongside freshly prepared vegetables.
