We stopped in for lunch. The meal and the service were excellent. The pricing was what we expected for the area we were in and it was worth every penny. I am a vegetarian and had no problems finding something wonderful to eat here.

While all of Geneva is expensive, this was certainly the highlight of my trip. The amuse bush was divine, each dish was a small portion but all were full of flavour accompanied by some lovely local wines. I found the service exceptional and would happily go again, especially as it is open on a Monday!

It's expensive but worth the price. Choose the set menu this time. Food is good and meet my expectation. Everything set to very high standard. The staff is highly professional and always there for you. I have a great visit. Thank you.

This is a superb experience on a trip to Geneva. Yes, you will find less expensive places but it is well worth the price. Dinner for 2 around £350 which is fairly expensive. This included a fairly unimpressive Hendricks and tonic (only lemon and ice) for around £22. The set menu was indicated around 4 courses but as always came... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. It has always been and still is the luxury, refinement and creativity of menu engineering. Simply excellent. But, it is one of the most expensive for dinner. So, take advantage of the very special lunch menu at very affordable prices and go there whenever you feel like spoiling yourself.

The restaurant creates a sense of belonging. The service was really 5 star : the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. We changed certain meals in the menu and the staff was flexible and understanding. The wine was great and the best 'kir royal' for 2015 I got from this restaurant. Bravo and keep it up.

Had the tasting menu. EVERY course was delicious. Fish choices better than meat. Loved it all. Wine guidance was appreciated and fit the meal well.

Good food.Not a lively place. Entertainment was provided by the staff,every person a freak in itself.The waiter was very short,the sommelier may have been better suited for farm work,the waitress bore a striking resemblance to a parakeet.

So!!! The food is exceptional and is really a pleasure every bite you have... "Classique French style" perfectly done. Nothing of "Author's signature". That's maybe the reason I found it overpriced. There is no experimentation or fusion at all. 80€ for a starter or a main course it should brings you a bit more from the Chef in my point... More
