PASSION FOR MUSIC AND FOOD

The Montreux Jazz Café was born of Claude Nobs’ passion for music and fine dining. The Festival founder, trained as a chef, designed them as a welcoming space where cuisine and music could combine in a way never seen before.
At the Festival, proximity between the biggest musicians and the public, comfort, and an eye for details result in historic concerts and encourage the appearance of memorable moments. It’s that fine touch and know-how that we wish to share with you in our restaurants, conceived to be ambassadors of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
We offer contemporary cuisine, and our menu includes dishes crafted with the very passion so characteristic of those inimitable Montreux moments: our famous B.B. Burger, Coquelet façon Quincy Jones, and the succulent Ella’s Cheesecake.
The Festival showed great vision in recording every single concert from the very beginning, and these archives have been recognized by UNESCO through inclusion in the “Memory of the World Register”. We invite you to relive this musical odyssey at our comfortable Café, which feature exclusive access to the archives.
In the area? On a trip around the world? Enjoy a relaxing and delicious interlude while listening to some of the most striking concerts from the Festival’s history.
