Out dinner at this restaurant was great. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious - this was the best meal we have had in Geneva, and at a reasonable price. We got a table outside which was great, the atmosphere is very congenial and the staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

The food here is amazing. Classics playfully and delightfully reinvented. A guaranteed gastronomic trip. Book ahead.

I very much like to go there for lunch. I enjoy their cuisine (they actually have a kitchen and do not only warm up he food). They always 2 to 3 daily menus. Excellent food, very friendly staff. Very casual atmosphere, not for romantic lunch, more a brasserie/bistrot type of restaurent.

Came across this one on Tripadvisor and decided to visit last Friday night. Didn't get round to booking so thought we'd be able to walk in. Noticed the place opened at 7pm so when we eventually found it we popped in to see if we could have a table of 2 at 8pm. Two very friendly members of staff let... More

We went with my partner for this "highly recommended" restaurant for work day lunch. The place was crowded, we were ignored for a while until we got a table. Menu was stilishly hand-written and it was impossible to read the writing. It made no sense so we asked for waiters help. He just read it to us and while we... More

I have been five times. This being Friday fish was on the menu, a homemade provençal fish soup with homemade croutons and a very tasty not too garlicky aioli, then a flétan (halibut) with grapefruit and beurre blanc . Try their very interesting findling white wine from geneva. 50 francs for this, no dessert, no coffee. I rate it excellent... More

This restaurant has maintained its standard of cuisine over the years. Many of the dishes are cooked with wine and delicious. They have some long-standing favourites, such as quail, veal kidneys and steaks served with gratin dauphinois and vegetables. The 3 course menu price is reasonable by Geneva standards and allows a selection of dishes that are also available à... More

We are visiting the restaurant since about 15 years once in a while, and we always enjoyed it. It is a Bistro type of restaurant, very nice atmosphere, not fancy. The food is quite original. Many visitors come from the neighbourhood. As fas as I know, it is closed on Saturday and Sunday. The menu (3-courses) is about 40 CHF,... More

23CHF for a really great quality plat du jour - Adding the really decent wine prices, we had a dinner for two with wine for 80CHF, at this price almost unbeatable quality in Geneva! The food is really excellent and the service very friendly, just an unpretentious, very recommendable restaurant with excellent value for money - not a given in... More
