Excellent food!

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... read more

We had been told about this hotel / restaurant from friends who frequent Evian. It is definitely worth eating there although staying at the hotel might be a good experience -- best to have a room with view of the lake, I would assume. It is an old estate that is now hotel and restaurant. Right on the lake with... More

We've enjoyed this restaurant on numerous occasions and what always bring us back is: 1. Exceptional location (directly on the water front. You can dock you boat) 2. Creative and well presented menus with all sorts of little touches that make it different 3. Sebastian and his professional and warm reception 4. ...and finally the 2 lazy labradors who sleep...

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
