Everything is just perfect from service to food, especially this "Lièvre à la Royale" which was just outstanding. A memorable evening in the cosy atmosphere of the wonderful Beau-Rivage hotel. Probably one of the very best restaurants in Geneva. A drink at the piano bar is a must before dinner.

We were passing through Geneva and spent a couple of nights at the Beau Rivage. Geneva is a not known for its restaurants (several one-stars but no two or three stars) and we opted to "eat in" (i.e., at the Beau Rivage's "gourmet" restaurant) on our second night and we were very pleasantly surprised by every aspect of the dining...

Try the 'Earth and Sea' chef's menu. It will blow your buds. Wash down with the appropriate wine selection. The 'Autumn flavours' - mushroom fields forever. Fantastic dining.

A pleasant, but disappointing experience. The style is very classical, but not compelling. The dishes seemed dated, nothing contemporary. We opted for the truffle menu and really liked 2 of the 8 dishes. The others showed no "edge". The restaurant dealed with our late arrival very professionally. However, the staff seemed disengaged. The sommelier didn't know that the wine he... More

I ate here for my birthday as part of a surprise from my wife. We had previously eaten at Den Gouden Harynck in Bruges, Number one in Edinburgh, Maze in London and Cobea in Paris within the last 12 months. Having gained a fairly large amount of experience of these establishments within the last year, I expected this to be... More

Le Chat Botte is one of the best restaurant in Geneva but it's the best French restaurant in Geneva. It's French and contemporary cuisine by the Chef Dominique Gauthier, one Michelin star and 18/20 in Gault et Millau.

In the interesting culinary landscape of Geneva, Le Chat Botte represents French cooking tradition at its best. Situated on the ground floor of the Beau Rivage Hotel, the restaurant dining room is very classical in style, having escaped, so far, the contemporary-style restyling of several of the other restaurants of the same category in Geneva. The menu is based on... More

We had a wonderful evening at one of Geneva´s best restaurants. Not only was the food wonderful (my wife claims she had the best veal she ever tried), but the friendliness of the superbly trained staff made the occasion special. The sommelier was a great help. The atmosphere was friendly rather than stuffy as it can be sometimes in Switzerland... More

Discover the Lievre a la Royale, the meats, fish, cheese variations and one of the most amazing vines as I ever seen. They deserve 2 stars Michelin.
