The name Eligo comes from the Latin ‘eligere’, meaning to make a choice. That’s a reference to Chef Guillaume Raineix whose life took a new turn when he left the kitchens of Anne-Sophie Pic to open his own restaurant. It was a winning choice too, as he won his Michelin star and 15 points in the Gault Millau. Choice at the Eligo is also about fresh produce, mainly from the local region. Its local accents are mixed with notes of French and Italian cuisine, favourites of the Chef. There are several menus to choose from, including a surprise menu, new every evening.
Set in a vast space where concrete and wood create a modern setting, the Eligo is situated in the Rôtillon district of Lausanne. This spot is very central and has been redesigned in a style that attracts the city’s young clientele.
