Very enjoyable

Our group of 5 ate in a very pleasant courtyard area. The service was efficient and the food well presented. A good choice of seafood, all cooked very well. Only minor improvement would be the delay in getting and paying the bill. Would go back for a special occasion.

This Restaurant is a place for locals and tourists as well. Friendly service, good wine list, local specialties and a famous seafood bar with oysters, sea urchins, lobster and all. The classic French Bistro in Geneva. A pleasant change from Raclette and Geschnetzeltes.

The restaurant is situated in prominent side of Geneva. As we heard that we couldn’t have dinner here without booking therefore we went there to reserve at about 7 pm for six persons. When we booked the table for having dinner the restaurant was empty (at 7 pm) so we thought that it was exaggeration to book in advance. In... More

Old tone area. Busy place for dinner reservation suggested. Display of seafood at entrance great idea. Server very experience and professional. Menu very extensive from sashimi to soup salad to meat and of course seafood. Fresh oyster great way to start appetizer. Grill cod with asparagus and potato is excellent, minor issue is potato is oily. Macaron with ice cream... More

The venue, the food, the people are simply perfect. The seafood is one of the best you could find arround Geneva. A real Brasserie with a large choice of meals and wines. The covered terrace is ideal for famillies, in summer but also in winter. I have been particularly impressed by the waiters and waitress, who give such a soul... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while in Geneva on biz. A colleague and I just walked in (no reservation). The hostess had us at a table in about 5 - 10 minutes. We had a plateau of seafood, including crevettes and mussels (3 different types). The food was great! Our waiter was very accommodating and friendly, cracked a few jokes with... More

Hemming way ate at the Lipp but is obvious that not many other foreigners do. The decor is fascinating as are the eclectic parisienne cliental who are only out done by the rather haute waiters. The menu is only in french and limited to very specialised traditional cuisine such as aged sardines which come served in the tin et voila.... More
