the place to splurge

nice ambiance, however after hearing such good reviews on the food we were a bit disappointed to find what we ordered to be very average, the choucroute and the braised leg of lamb, not quite value for our money. the oysters were great and the desserts were good. i guess in the end you come here... read more

It is overall a good restaurant with good food. It can be very noisy and crowded on the weekends when lots of families are there for weekend meals. The wait can be long to very long!

Apparently this place is famous for its fish, more specifically the oysters. Everybody at my table was very happy with them and would recommend. I ordered meat, a traditional lamb dish and it was fantastic. Even though the place was very busy the service was very good.

We went with a party of eight to celebrate a birthday. Yes, this place is not cheap. But the atmosphere, the service and the food are all absolutely first class. It is actually one of the best places in Geneva to go for a first rate dinner. Don't look at the prices, just order and then diet for the rest... More

Lipp used to be one of my favourite restaurants in Geneva. No longer the food is bland, the prices high and the service is getting average. Have promised myself not to return.

We went to lipp because we knew this is one place that stays open during the whole day! It was 3 pm as we started to order: OS a la moelle for my friend and for me, a salad and vegetarian couscous. The salad was ok, with a lot of steamed vegetables in it with a sweet sauce, but not... More

They must have quite the logistics chain to be able to offer the variety of fresh on-the-shell oysters. I had the sampler platter and was delighted. The main course seafood offerings were a bit limited, so we opted for veal and beef dishes that were both quite good.

Lippi is an institution in Geneva: I go quite often as its one of the few restaurants that is open until late (2AM). Food is very good and has some healthy choice (tend to go for salmon tartare and rock fish soup). Ask to be seated in the "jardin d'hiver".

These mussels were excellent. Sauce marineire was great, with the cream and wine giving it excellent flavour aand depth. The snails were excellent too, cooked in a rich garlic and buttery sauce which was excellent. The creme brulee was also very good, great crisp to the top layer and the vanilla was evident in the creme brulee. One of the... More
