Le Pont de Brent Reviews

Le Pont de Brent is a prestigious fine dining establishment in the Canton of Vaud. In 2011, Stéphane Decotterd took over as head chef from Gerard Rabaey, who had previously earned three stars. Since then, he has earned two stars. He made the decision a few years ago to obtain all of his ingredients locally (or at the very least from Switzerland), following in the footsteps of Laurent Petit, who practices a little more refined version of ‘cuisine locavore’ at Le Clos des Sens in Annecy. This restaurant served us a delicious meal shortly before Christmas, and the Menu découverte, which was just CHF 98, was an excellent value. Cepes with croustillant de cerf for the beginning, and dos de sandre from Lake Maggiore for the main course were also excellent choices. We had a bottle of Cardonnay ‘Fumé’ from Ch. Besson, Lake Zurich, which was pleasant but not particularly memorable. The amuse bouche were a little disappointing, since they were of the thicker and ‘bready’ kind. The service might have been a bit more attentive at times, and the replenishment of wine was a touch delayed…
