We were lucky enough to get a reservation for dinner at this lovely restaurant. It ended up being the best dinner we had in Geneva. The location is down a quiet street, away from all the touristy places. It was packed at 2 in the afternoon when I wandered in to make a reservation. We had a great evening. The... More

After reading reviews we decided to lunch here on arrival in Geneva, the staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful in making a choice off the menu. We chose the lunch menu of the day which was superb value and plentiful. Decent fresh fish from the lake and good soup.

Love everything about this place except it's hard to get a reservation as they are always packed. Small dining area but friendly staff and always trying to please. They are happy to give you some French lessons as well. We always make it mandatory to have dinner there at least once each visit.

I can't say enough good things about this place. This is a Lyonnaise-style restaurant. The décor is super cute French bistro, with various vintage French ads and such. The waitress was incredibly friendly and accommodating as we ordered the price fixe menu but made some switches to our orders. The food was simple, but absolutely delicious. I would definitely go...

Nothing extraordinary and nothing bad. staff is great and menu is ok...meat can be overcooked if restaurant is full, good choice of wines, maybe a bit too many tables.

Living in Geneva, this is the place which comes first to my mind if I decide to eat down town! Excellent Swiss food. Friendly, efficient service.

hearty food from the "Lyonnnaise" tradition, pricey but worth it. Better at dinner since you can roll over and sleep afterwards. Try the boudin noir (black pudding) with apples, with a spanish Priorat. Friendly owners.

My first steak lunch was an introduction interview meeting during my banking days. This is a very authentic Swiss bistro / Steak specialty resto. It's well known with the locals and almost a secret gem hidden away. The food was perfectly cook and delicious to taste. Service was impeccable. Our jackets were taken prior to sitting and returned to us... More

I had a very nice business dinner in this crowded restaurant. Staff is very friendly and food excellent. Must be one of the best restaurants around, still family restaurant feeling. Prices are of course of Geneva level, but the service and class of food make it worth it.

We knew this place was going to be good as we had walked past the night before and it was full. We arrived early and had no problem getting a table for two - but leaving was a much more difficult affair. We both ordered the two different set menus. Starters, main course and dessert were each delicious, the sauces... More
