Excellent restaurant, fantastic setting

Great place to eat, very good service & setting. You pay for what you get and this is very very good. Well worth a visit. Beautiful setting on the banks of lake Geneva .

The waiter was nice, but the maitre'd definitely had an attitude. I asked for a very dry white wine and got the opposite. The food was just okay, nice atmosphere, I am sure you can find a better place to eat.

Last summer on our way to Evian we stopped here for lunch. It was the middle of the rush hour, we didn't reserve a table, which annoyed the head waiter. He grumpily led us to a table, then rudely told my husband to take my son outside because he was "in the way". The rest of the waiters were really... More

Much of your experience will depend on who is your server. The first night we ate here, the maitre,d was was helpful; but, haughty. The attitude seemed to prevail throughout the hotel with one lovely exception....our waiter, who was Italian. He was very gracious and extremely accommodating. If it weren't for him, we would not have returned. The second night... More

We ate dinner on their very attractive terrace with great views over the lake. The staff appear professional, but the food is very disapointing. We both ordered rare fillet steak with a cream sauce with morels served with pomme de terre dauphinois and seasonal vegetables. The pomme de terre dauphinois served was powdered potato balls deep fried from frozen. I... More

The restaurant has many little trinkets piled here and there reaching a point of overkill. They should consider a garage sale and refocusing on dining and food. I mean there where over 10+ soap choices in the toilets ! The food unfortunately seems to suffer from some disattention. One can however understand that there is a lot of pent up... More

We went there with a couple of friends and we were happy we booked a table the day before. We got a table on the terasse by the lake. The waiters were friendly and professionnal and the food menu was excellent. We had between us different dishes inlcuding meat and fish. The starters were very good and the main courses... More

Now a favourite of ours! We live near here during the summer and always bring our guests and friends here. Not only is the ambiance charming and 'sympa' the cuisine is outstandingly good and superbly presented. The 'Prix Fixe' menus are always very good quality and we've always had the impression that they LOVE what they do, very much appreciate... More

The brother and sister team, who took over the running of this restaurant from their parents transformed this formerly very modest hotel and restaurant into a magical floral lakeside venue full of warmth and charm - one of the only such establishments in Evian. After a hard day doing my annual chores at my vacation home above Evian, we decent... More
