Went last Sunday to the Intercontinental for family brunch, the 4 of us and I can say that we were extreme disappointed. Small selection of salads and hors d'oeuvres with one main dish only but no pastries, pan cakes, cappuccino or hot chocolate for the kids or at an extra above the CHF85 per person !! I want hoping to... More

We had a nice diner here. Also I must say that it is not worth the full price. We had the 40% off price which made the bill acceptable for what we ate. Nice kale salad and nice wine list as well.

The Intercontinental is set away from Geneva town centre but very close to the United Nations palace and all the other Non governmental organisations (Red Cross, WIPO, UNHCR, WHO, etc.). It is a 10 minute short bus ride to the hyper centre though via bus 5 which comes from and goes to the airport from the Intercontinental and will take... More

The setting is very nice and peaceful and the service is very discrete and efficient. Food was lovely but portions a little on the small side. Menu is good but not very extensive and I am not sure it caters for all tastes. It was good enough for me but maybe something the chef and management may want to think... More

We had the menu for the day. Our guest enjoyed the dip served with the bread. The salad, fish and dessert were all served with pretty presentation. Looking out towards their landscaped pond is refreshing. Our guest enjoyed our meal together.
