We habitually eat our lunches here with colleagues. There are always two luncheon specials and a selection of moderately priced alternatives.

Today two members of our group selected a generous vegetarian curry; two others a cold smoked salmon salad; and one selected one of the luncheon specials--beef with noodles accompanied by veggies.

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!

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
