Geneva is expensive, really really expensive, so this restaurant is no different from the rest of the city in that sense. The staff was professional ,attentive, and very amused when I took out my credit card at the end of the night while my husband watched. The place is old-school, so I imagine they aren't used to women paying for... More

Well spaced out tables with good service and quality ingredients, well presented. If you want to try frogs legs but are put off by the thought of very little flesh on lots of fiddly bones - order the starter of boned frogs legs with langoustines, which is very tasty. We can also recommend the veal sweetbreads in a pastry case... More

Food is excellent. Desert is excellent. Service is one of a kind in this deteriorating city. The waiters deserve a medal. Deserts are nice. The owner and chef jacks his self come out of his kitchen and great the clients and check if everyone is satisfied like nice old Geneva. Wish that a lot of restaurants copy on you.

A colleague of mine recommended Chez Jacky for a special evening as it was a bit more expensive than some of the Geneva restaurants we frequent. However, in retrospect, I really don't think that the fixed price menus are out of line with other fine dining options that we like in Geneva. We all got the three course menu of... More

I have been here before. It was recommended back in 2010 by a local to Geneve. The food was authentic French. Well prepared and presented. Service impeccable. The chef comes out at the end. Business lunch is a good value. Try to not eat a breakfast and go for the selection on the dessert cart! A must. Bon apps!

This place is not cheap, but it's worth every penny. The staff do their absolute best to treat you like you are king (or queen) and to give you top notch food. really good. Every time.

Dont be put off by the offbeat location and the gian fish tank that reminds of an Asian restaurant. This place serves excellent traditional French nouveau cuisine ina relaxed, non pretentious atmosphere. We had a fantastic experience here over a business dinner for 6.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The waiter was attentive and knew his wines and I had one of the tenderest steaks I have ever had in my life, anywhere in the world. With a wide variety of French cuisine, and very good at that, sitting at a table outside watching the world go by in the warm sunshine was fun.Not... More

I was a guest at Chez Jacky and began the evening enjoying entrez under the awnings at the footpath before moving into the restaurant for the main meal. Entrez with a glass of red wine went down well after a long week at a conference. The food was delicate and tastey. I had beef for my main and it was... More
