Nobody will rush you out as you enjoy a leisurely meal!

First to notice as you approach this restaurant are the huge chess and checker sets that you will notice when you pass by, very inviting and fun.

I had the pleasure to try this lovely cuisine with colleagues. The restaurant is like a mini glass castle with chandeliers all around which reflects all over the glass panes - very beautiful at night. The maitre d' was very articulate in both Fr, and Eng; he described the wine and food menu to the group - how the entrees... More

In the middle of the park, next to the entrance gate and the chess players, beautiful architecture for this winter garden style brasserie. Nice terrasse in summer time for having a drink in the relaxed surroundings of the park ...

Besides its lovely setting the food is very good. Went in game season and there was a wide choice of seasonal game. Much enjoyed the food and ambience.

The place is a beautiful pavilion in the park and the restaurant owners are very friendly, polite and welcoming - quite different from the usual snobbish Geneva style. The brunch on Sundays is to die for, just excellent. Great place to hang out with friends and family. Highly recommended.

Very interesting place, where you can have a glance at the chess players playing with enormous pieces! Nice to walk around in the park and look at the wall... quite an interesting piece! All depends how the place is busy, but the service is good and we did enjoy our brunch. Best spot to be in summer :)
