Hotel Le Richemond has always placed great importance on its restaurant Le Jardin. During the Armleder days, Le Richemond was one of the first hotels in Geneva to prepare simple and refined daily specials. Their very reasonable price quickly attracted people to the restaurant. Restaurant Le Jardin is maintaining this tradition and proposes simple but inventive Italian cuisine. The menus range from light meals at noon, business meals to more sophisticated dinners. Le Jardin, with a completely new décor and layout, offers an urban and cosmopolitan setting. The legendary terrace, protected and calm, is always a fabulous experience for guests. Still located on the ground floor of the main building, Le Jardin is large enough to seat 134 people, 70 in the interior and 64 on the terrace. The private dining room welcomes more intimate dinners for a maximum of 16 people.

The restaurant is not the most attractive it is rather old fashioned and the windows are narrow, when sitting down there is nothing to see. We were seated and told where the buffet was situated. As it was New Year's Day we decided a glass of champagne would be in order. The buffet was not very large with only two... More

This restaurant, at Hotel de Richmonde, is a delight. The weather was warm, with some light drizzle and distant lightning. For us, that's perfect to sit outside, dry under the awning, watching the assorted exotic cars come and go from the Hotel. The wine, the food and the service were impeccable. A delightful evening.

I have known this place for the last 20yrs. We were a very small group of fiends for dinner. As the place is known for their Dover Sole and other great dishes.

For some reason every time I go this restaurant there are only like 4-5 diners there. The food is excellent and location central. Maybe because it's a hotel restaurant? Or maybe because it's expensive? But everything in Geneva is expensive. Wait staff are lovely and food very good. I felt the wine list was a bit limited/
