I've read so many good reviews about this place that I wanted to give it a try. Very expensive - even for Geneva if we put in perspective with what we took: table of 2 People - 80 chf total. We took no starters, a salad each as main, shared a bottle of water, 2 espressos and shared the desert... More

We enjoyed every dish we ordered: both the carrot with coconut milk and chestnut & porcini soups were amazingly delicious. Followed by Spanish style ham with arugula and fresh Parmesan shavings and yummy herring with horseradish/caviar/sour cream on a salad. Ordinarily we don't order dessert but decided to try and were not disappointed. The apple tart was lovely; the molten... More

This smallish restaurant near Monument Brinswick refuses to serve coffee and tea to visitors who did not make a reservation. Although there were empty seats, the answer was a rude no. The location of the place is near perfect, right at a very touristy place. What a missed opportunity. Who is the manager here?

What a lovely evening we had. Very close to our hotel (hotel de la paix). The food, service, and ambience were very good in every way. The food is mainly tapas and there is a wide selection to suit all palates. We would suggest no more than 5 per couple. The desserts are excellent although if you choose rum and... More

Desserts are incredibly tasty and fresh. The outdoor set up is refreshing and staff is friendly and efficient. I definitely recommend to stop by if you are in Geneva

This must be one of the smallest restaurants in Geneva. Much has been said in reviews below, I can only add: What you eat at this place is well and nicely spiced. Usually when there are many spices in food, they blend into something unidentifiable and integrated good or bad, but you will have difficulties to sort out the different... More

While visiting Geneva we find this nice little place where we could eat outside. The tapas seem a bit expensive, but they are larger than in general. Everything is home made and be sure to leave room for their excellent deserts....

The Cottage Café really is in a cottage - in the middle of Geneva, within metres of the lake. We ate outside on a warm, sunny autumn day. Hard to beat for its lovely setting amidst trees, by a fountain and with a view of the Jet d'eau (and an over-the-top Victorian memorial). The food was excellent. The goat cheese... More

We have eaten there for lunches and dinners since 2012. We will continue to go back to eat their great pastas and salads. Sit back, relax and enjoy watching the world go by. A perfect place to fuel up before twowheeltours heads off on the Haute Route Alps and Dolomites.

this breakfast was exactly what we needed: fresh juice, delicious caffeine-filled coffee, unusual (but wonderful) infusion tea, muesli with fresh fruit, toasted spelt bread topped with butter and fresh berry jams. It couldn't have tasted better. Was a little too chilly to sit outside, but we will next time. And, at $20/person, the price was reasonable by Geneva standards.
