Esprit Kitchen & Bar

Taste! Enjoy!



Esprit Kitchen & Bar is a space with contrasted atmospheres to take time out for yourself.

The palace spirit at the Grand Hôtel du Lac.

A gourmet offer for every moment! In our conservatory or comfortably seated in our bar or lounges, choose your space and your menu.

From 12:00 to 21:30, an extensive menu awaits you 7/7.

From the lake to the Swiss Alps, from luxury to must-haves, from local products to those from afar. Are you more into air-dried meat, salad, caviar, oysters, or sushi? Or everything?! Share your dishes!

Respecting the rhythm of the seasons, where regional products take precedence, the cuisine is enhanced by an attentive yet discreet service, and a wine menu where the accent is placed on the best Lavaux vintages.



Make yourself at home at the very heart of the hotel. Bathed in daylight, the sublime décor and the breathtaking floral creations welcome you each day. The subdued evening lighting is conducive to finding a comfy spot in one of our lounges, relaxing, chatting, reading, or enjoying a cocktail.

A multi-hued voyage into the Chinese-influence bar, the classic-contemporary lounge and the Oriental lounge decorated in the sumptuous colours of a thousand and one nights.

On the veranda side, a luminous atmosphere and the terrace on sunny days, with the view over Lake Geneva.

Fancy a lunch or a dinner?
Tea or cocktails?
An afterwork party?

Choose your moment!


And what about breakfast ?! Discover the morning magic at the Grand Hôtel du Lac and join our table !

Every day begins with an exceptional culinary experience with our sumptuous breakfast buffet. A celebration of flavors, freshness, and variety in an elegant setting by Lake Geneva. Crispy pastries, other delights, and vegetarian options await you.


“Esprit du dimanche” A Journey to the Heart of Childhood Memories

Every Sunday noon, “Esprit du Dimanche” invites the finest gourmets to relive, with family or friends, exceptional culinary moments that rekindle our memories of the famous “Sunday Meal”.

A culinary symphony created in three acts by our Chef Guy Ravet, combining the charm of tradition, conviviality, and refinement. Starters to share, a main course renewed every two weeks for constant rediscovery, and a dessert cart by our Pastry Chef Gaëlle Peralta offer an alternative to Sunday brunches.

Opening Hours

Esprit Kitchen & Bar open everyday
from 12 pm to 10 pm (last order at 9.30 pm)

Live piano in the bar with Elisa Montaldo, evenings from Tuesday to Saturday.

Live music is played all year round at the Henryk’s bar, except during Summer where our resident DJ ensures the musical atmosphere at the ephemeral restaurant and bar, the Buddha-Bar-Beach.

We would like to inform our valued guests that the Live Piano will be taking a short break in March before resuming at the beginning of April.


Terrace smoking area opening times

In order to offer all our guests a most enjoyable moment on our terrace, we inform you that smoking is allowed at your table from 13.30pm (for lunch service) and from 21.30pm (for dinner service). A smoking area remains at your entire disposal at any time. We thank you in advance for your understanding and we wish you a very pleasant moment with us. Enjoy your meal!



We would like to inform our valued guests that, in consideration of the comfort and tranquility of all our clientele, our four-legged friends are not allowed in our dining areas. However, we would be delighted to welcome your canine companions in the comfort of your room, where they can enjoy a pleasant stay at the Grand Hôtel du Lac. Nevertheless, we want to emphasize that guide dogs are an exception to this rule and are always welcome in our dining areas to ensure their mobility in complete safety.
