We keep coming back to this lovely restaurant by the lake and it's always a good experience! The food is delicious and beautifully presented! They also have options for the kids.

The place is nicely located at the lake in Divonne Les Bains. The restaurant itself is quite nice with a elegant decor in reasonably neutral and good taste. The food is very good although some people might find it a bit too experimental. It is probably not a restaurant where you would want to go too frequently though due to... More

Overlooking the lake on a stormy evening and savoring the chefs's innovative but still understandable meals was a real pleasure. Everything was just perfect, even if I am no fan of azote cooking. Fortunately, it was not widely used. On top of the excellent food, the cellar offers uncountable great wines which give the sommelier the opportunity to tell endless... More

My husband and I have been here 4 times in all over the past year - once for a group event (20 people), twice for a romantic dinner and once for a relaxing Saturday lunch. We've been pleasantly surprised on each occasion, and will definitely return. Pros: Lots of variety and surprise in the food, relaxed but gourmet feel, fabulous... More

Great restaurant, just across the border from Switzerland, a location that explains the relatively high prices. The food was excellent, and the service better than some reviews on Tripadvisor suggest. Our young grandchildren were offered several choices from the children's menu. Will happily return.

Very tasty food and nice terrace make us going to this restaurant at least 3 times per year (April-Sep also open on Sunday). Not rating it 5 as portions are not always large and the prices of wine per glass are rather high. Usually it takes time to get the dishes - plan for around 2-2.5 hours (starter, main, dessert)....

We were a party of 4 and enjoyed excellent food, well prepared and tantalisingly different from the norm as much use is made of foam and other such artefacts. The lunch menu - a subset of the main menu - has fixed prices for 2 or 3 courses and is excellent value. Attractive taste and texture can be found in... More

Not only they offer two "amuse bouche" in the beginning but also two "miniardises" at the end. I especially liked the xmas bread in liquid nitrogen that makes you breath white smoke from nse and mouth! The sea food menu was delicious and at a very good price (77€) for 3 starters, main and dessert. The service needs much improvement... More

Best gastronomic address in Divonne and possibly in the greater Geneva region if one considers value for money : The food is delicious and quite innovative (but not excessively so, thanks to a very measured usage of molecular cooking, just enough to surprise and delight, but not too much in order not to confuse). Several Amuses-Bouches are served before the... More

This restaurant is far from what it advertises (and maybe wants) to be: - the food presentation is good, but the food itself is not - the staff is quite pretentious - the decor is quite poor (only helped by the nice views, but there are only a few table who really take advantage of that) - the prices are...
