Opening of the brand-new Café Byron

Ever dreamt of stopping to sip a nice cup of tea or a delicious coffee along the banks of Lake Geneva by Chillon Castle? Good news – your dreams are about to come true!

Café Byron is opening its doors on 8 June 2020 to locals and visitors to the fortress, cooking up a host of local, seasonal dishes. To get your mouth watering, here’s a sneak preview of the tantalising menu… Yum!

The new restaurant pavilion will give visitors the chance to both admire the amazing view over Chillon Castle through the bay windows and enjoy a tasty pit-stop all year round. In summer, visitors will also be able to sit out on the terrace and sip a cool, refreshing drink. These videos take a look back at the entire construction process, from the placing of the first stone to the glistening, golden sign.

Managed by Novae catering, Café Byron is open every day of the year, except 1st January and 25th December, from 10am to 6pm. Fancy a quick virtual tour before the adventure begins? Head to the brand spanking new website
