I used to live nearby this place and went there on many occasions. This is one of the few places in Geneva where the nice and modern atmosphere, friendliness of staff and great quality of the food add up to a very positive experience, despite being a little overpriced. Their pizza is fantastic and their antipasti plates are also the... More

I have visited the restaurant Les Tilleuls in St Jean twice and on each occasion it has been absolutely awful. The first time, two years ago, my sister and I took my parents there for a birthday meal and we had to wait over 90 minutes to get our food after ordering. This required us having to ask the waiter... More

Food is generally good, you need a reservation but I guess there it is the result of success. Pasta dishes (which, I in general take) are good. Very tasty sometimes a touch salty (ok I normally eat without salt). Portions are large to very large. Service is friendly to very friendly with Stéphane being very nice every time we went... More

We had dinner at "Les Tilleuls" during a warm summer day and were able to eat outside (to ensure an outdoor table you should make a reservation). The Pizzas were good and the portions quite big. The service was average and it took them sometimes very long (OK, it was very crowded), but they were friendly.

Hello, thank you very much for publishing an opinion on Tripadvisor. It makes us happy and we will forward it to the team. Indeed, it is better to be sure to book a table on the terrace. In 2010 we won the audience award for the most beautiful terrace in the city of Geneva. More

Excellent rissotos (we had the seafood and the mushroom ones). Huge portions and very tasty! Very busy, so definitely book! Very enjoyable meal although fairly pricey. Would avoid a starter unless you a very hungry!

It is really hard to fault this place, and anybody who has read my other reviews knows I don't lavish praise liberally. What can I say? Huge (Americanesque) portions of food of very high quality. Convivial modern atmosphere, very popular amongst locals. Friendly helpful service. What more can you want? Go there! :-)
