Was the Laronde the one at the top of Albany Road near the Candy Shop? If so, it was still open in the mid 70's.

I seem to remember the place, with a sign in fancy lettering that read La Ronde, somewhere in Earlsdon Street or Albany Road. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thought it was at the top of Albany Rd. It was originally opened by my stepfather's friend when I was a child many moons ago!!!

Court 6 in Spon Street has been serving excellent authentic Asian cuisine for the last four and a half years. The owner, Asif, is a consummate host who not only cooks but has a great pride in the heritage of his restaurant premises and the surrounding area. Coventry is quite well served for Asian restaurants but Court 6 will be missed by many dedicated connoisseurs of its fare. It has been far more than a 'lager & vindaloo' joint that we used to get years ago. I suspect that any new lease will go to one of the big 'chain' establishments. Best wishes for the future to Asif and his staff, Coventry's dining scene will be the poorer without you. Thumbs up
It now appears to be occupied by "Selminas"

Hi. I remember the Swiss Alps restaurant because I got my first job there when I left school in 1975. We had to wear Swiss uniforms. My job was to clear the tables. It didn't last long because they said I didn't smile enough. I don't know what happened to it.
Swiss Alps first opened in 1971, set up by Croatian businessman Ivan Polancec and his Spanish wife. They brought outfits from Switzerland for the waitresses I believe! I think the original restaurant was in the shop unit below C & A? Ivan had an eccentric house built in Eastern Green reflecting his eclectic tastes! Thanks for all the memories folks! If you wish to get in touch with some more, I'm preparing a fun book on nightlife in Cov in 1970s so do mail me.
