A great night with some business colleagues

First, it is just a fun experience. A quaint bistro in the middle of Geneva. They do provide an english menu, should you need it. The wine list has something for everyone (think size of War and Peace). The selection of food is truly devine; meat, fish, poultry (sorry, don't recall vegetarian... read more

I you like meat here you are but you need to make a reservation. This place is well known by the locals as it has constant quality since 2 decades.

3 of us on a work trip ate here and by the end of the meal were ready to reserve a table for the following night.... Its that good. Food was perfection, even the wines were a cut above. If you visit Geneva, I'd put this on the must list.

Spent a nice evening here with business colleagues. There are a number of Lyonnaise specialties on the menu most notable being the Lyonnaise salad as a starter and the Lyonnaise sausage as a main course. Others had rack of lamb and steak tartar. All were very good. Large portions, and nice desserts combined with good service and a very pleasant... More

This is clearly a popular and well established restaurant which specialises in Lyonnaise dishes. The staff could not have been more helpful in finding us a table with our having a reservation. Geneva can be a challenging place to find somewhere great to eat that is not overly expensive and also has some atmosphere. Its a restaurant to keep returning... More

We had a good meal with good service in a busy, lively atmosphere. It is quite a cosy restaurant and I was pleased that we had a reservation. Restaurants are expensive in Geneva but this felt reasonably good value as one of us had the set menu.

This hotel is very close to the Hotel de la Paix and easy to find. The concierge helped us get the last table, so I'd advise that you reserve as soon as you can. It's a very busy restaurant - even on a Monday night. The tables are very close together and clearly a very popular choice for the business... More

This is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. I shared the chateaubriand with a colleague and had it served medium rare. I was slightly disappointed when the waitress told me they didn't serve fries but I shouldn't have been. I was brought out some incredible potato/cheese concoction which was superb. The steak was the reddest I have... More
