It's all about location here. Situated right on Lake Geneva. We picked this place to have a quick bite to eat before our actual lunch. It looked casual enough to pop into just for coffee, hot chocolate and sweets for our kids. Tired after just arriving via train, then taxi, then taxi boat, with luggage in tow, I walked in... More

Took the family there for lunch. Lovely sunny day and on the river front Food was ok. Location is very good But the service was truly shocking. Needs to ask for coffee 3 times, bill 4 times ... Would not recommend at all

located in the centre of Geneva, tucked away between bridge, lac and shopping district, this place is always full with shoppers, tourist or business lunchers. the drawback is that the service is stretched, especially if the terasse is open. sort of good fall-back option, food is good but not great. pizza is ok, but overall fairly expensive.

The setting for this restaurant is great as a visitor to Geneva, being right on the lake. The food was fresh and tasty. I had the raw fish appetizer and grilled swordfish as my main course. Try the bread, it was one of the highlights of the meal.

Fantastic setting; great views of the river; good food - Al fresco on a beautiful sunny autumn day; sadly service was a bit "indifferent"......staff neither friendly or helpful - I felt they grudgingly tolerated the presence of their patrons. After an active wander around I must say I enjoyed that overall I enjoyed my experience here.

Wandered by this place while out walking and looking for a place to eat. Loved the location on this beautiful September evening. There were 3 in our party and we each had something different. The gnocchi dish was really nice. The gnocchi were firm and cooked just right and seasoned well. My pasta dish with mushrooms was also very tasty.... More

Without a reservation on a Saturday night during the Davis Cup tennis tournament, the staff found a way to accommodate us. The location in Geneva is unparalleled; right on the water with outside seating. The food was excellent and served timely. The risotto is wonderful. The wine list is complete with good choices at most price point. Our waitress, Christelle,... More

We each had a nice pasta dish in the lovely outdoor seating area, which is a great spot by the lake. The food really was delicious, and was reasonably priced. unfortunately I can't be as positive about the staff, very abrupt and unnatentive, took what felt a lifetime to take our order in what seemed like quite a quiet period...

This unfortunate restaurant is positioned at the best location in geneva, but has below average performance, they have a large menu with lots of variety , which i think make them unable to master their job, Their tomato soup is excellent, their salad is very good , their interecote cocked to perfection but, the meat has some hard fat and...
