Great little spot in the park with nice ambiance, a great selection of tapas plates and some good wine selections. We were looking for more of a formal restaurant and stumbled across this hidden gem.

Not bad food at reasonable prices and then all downhill. What a waste of a very nice site opposite the lake and in a small park. The seemingly ample number of floor staff appeared to have experienced mass myopia when it came time to try, and try very hard, to get someone's attention so I could order dessert. People came...

Delicious bread, nice atmosphere in the middle of a little park... just lovely to start the day, and probably for lunch too!

Stopped with my wife and 2 friends on a cold rainy day in geneva. Each has a hot chocolate. Prices reasonable for geneva, about 4.50 francs each for the hot chocolate. Very nice ambience in the small park and lots of board games to play, enjoyed a game of backgammon while there

Wonderful little building in a park just off of the lake. Tapas were delicious, as was the dessert. Staff were friendly and helpful with their suggestions. Would def. recommend the Cottage Cafe.

This café was really busy at lunch time despite being off season. It was all very pleasant and charming BUT the food was unexpectantly amazing. I had a salmon dish that had wonderful flavours, like something from a fancy restaurant rather than a café. The service was very friendly and the outlook lovely with a wood burner out on the... More

We happened upon this place by accident, and even though we didn't have a reservation, we were seated in about 5 minutes. The food was delicious and the place has a very cozy atmosphere. I recommend the carrot soup and red berry crumble with ice cream.
