Fine dining would not be my preferred choice of restaurant but there on a business dinner with an already selected menu but have to say was impressed. Food looks and tastes good. Would use again.

We had a great time at Le Rectiligne celebrating New Years Eve. We were served a set menu which was well composed with good variation of traditional and innovative cuisine. Some of the highlights were the marinated scallops, the lobster with artichoke ravioli, the pigeon and the delicious desserts. Service was impeccable and professional. We will be back soon!

Went with 40 colleagues therefore not my choice. You either like this type of food or you don't and I don't. So take this into account when you read this. I don't mind small portions but I want one big enough to actually be able to taste it and also not to be served huge amounts of bread to compensate.... More

If you like nouvelle cuisine, this is the place to go for dinner. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere too. The restaurant specializes in foie gras so you know what to expect. But the variety of dishes is great: both meat and seafood are well represented.

Have eaten here once. The view of the Lac de Divonne is lovely. Food is highly stylized, very good, very ambitious and artistic. We will go there again.

Great food from a great team ! We had a real nice experience at Le Rectiligne. Situated in a cul de sac, the restaurant might not be so easy to find (you will never drive by by accident) but is worth looking for. The food is very creative although locked with traditional savoir faire. The destructured dishes are only side... More

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
