Elegance and great food

The food was excellent! The service superlative! They were there but not overbearing, attentive but not invasive, quick and friendly. Best food and service I have seen in a long time. Not to mention the view!! Best terrace for the summer season.

Went here for a special family celebration and it was simply amazing. We had an amazing table on the terrace overlooking lake Geneva. Service was excellent, very formal but not over the top. We all took different dishes so we could taste a little bit of everything. Portions initially looked small but at the end of the meal, after the... More

My husband and I had an anniversary dinner at Le Chat-Botte and we both enjoyed it! Food is spectacular with classy yet surprising looks, textures, and flavors. Service is a bit "stiff" still quite good. It's more of a quiet / elegant venue so that's why I would recommend it for a more intimate occasion.

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.
