We arrived in front of the restaurant around 11:45am and found out that it only opens at 12pm. So we waited and as the restaurant opened, we were greeted warmly but to find out that the whole restaurant is fully booked. So we suggested that we also have to rush back in 1hr. The service staff was kind enough to... More

great for business dinner or dinner with friends. good wine list. Food is very good and it has a very French feel to it. You get all the great French classics (terrines, escargots, entrecotes etc). The food is simple but very well executed. Grating Dauphinois is fantastic. Service is very pleasant with a waiter having a good sense of humour.... More

We started coming to this restaurant in the 1980's and still come every time we visit Geneva. The food remains extremely good, whilst other restaurants standards have fallen. We always have one of the set menus which are excellent value at SFR54 for three courses in the evening and open carafes of good wine. The staff have changed over the... More

The restaurant is very nice and well maintained. The service was at a high level, with a smile and professional. However ... the food was pretty average. Without unusual flavors. Prices are high but not excessive. But this is Geneva. Gray and expensive.

we went to this restaurant based on the reviews of tripadvisor. And we were not disappointed. It was about 10 minutes walk from the train station. Reservation is a must, especially for big party. We had the onion soup as our starter and it was the best onion soup I had outside France. We shared the chateaubriand. The steak was... More

Stumbled across this without having read the reviews. Very worthy of the TA high rating. The game season has just opened, so we rightly went with it and it was superb. The staff are delightful and I will definitely be back. Recommend you book as we were lucky to get the only remaining table turning up as early diners.

It has been about two years since I have been to Geneva and this restaurant is still at the top of my list (along with Laderach chocolate). It appears they have cleaned up the place since my last visit, the walls are cleaner and new menus and it feels like it has been renewed. I got the smoked salmon salad... More

Authentic is the first word I think about, the food is very good and tasty. It is not real fancy sort of a Swiss take on Parisian bistro style paired with good quality local wines. The establishment takes advantage of good local produce and the owner is very service oriented welcomeing and happy. Well worthwhile.
