Delicious food, nicely served, welcoming staff, warm athmosphere!

Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Loved the fois-gras and the veggiy ravioli...millefeuille of goat cheese served as cheese but almost a dessert. Very good selection and combination of wines (discovered a very interesting wine from Vandee). Astonoshing Mises en bouche and miniardise. Will definitely go back.

This is truly a designer restaurant from décor, food and right down to cutlery. The food was presented in visually exciting combinations. Our starter consisted of two foie gras slices positioned vertically between three wafers. My main dish was shredded beef with an oval foie gras slice placed in the middle. After a three-course meal, we left with a good... More

I have been there 3 times and always been impressed by the mix that has been achieved in that place. Being located in a dead end street by the lake, it is obviously very quiet, no traffic around ! The chef offers you excellent traditional french cuisine but adds (should you wish it) a touch of modern art by including... More

Excellent food ! Innovative menu. Lovely location by a small lake and nice "ambiance". (terrasse in Summer, lovely). Attentive personnel. NOTE: I put AUGUST 2015 because you request an obligatory field that has no options for people who live in the place and go often ! I went on many occasions and I did not travel to Divonne !

This restaurant is very modern elegant. The food is new French or Nouvelle Cuisine. Excellent aperitifs and a good choice in wine. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. When leaving table I had a pleasant sufficiency even after a three course meal and amuses geules.

We had dinner here last night, having discovered the restaurant on trip advisor. It is a really nice place. The views from the windows are lovely looking across the lake. The variety of set menus is interesting & a little overwhelming. We had the lobster degustation & matching wines. The menu & all the little amuse bouche extras were lovely.... More

Living in the area of the Pays de Gex, we wanted to dine here since many years. We finally made it recently and we were pleased by the experience. We tried the menu "Éveil des Sens", the most expensive one. We were exceptionally impressed by the flavours and by the overall experience. Of course the price is not for the... More

Having eaten in Divonne frequently, but many years ago, finding Rectilinge wa a pleasant surprise. Many of the older, more traditional restaurants where one ate very well appear to have closed, often replaced by appartment blocks. We had eaten at the Chateau exactly a week earlier, and so can compare probably the 2 best reputed restos in Divonne. Rectiligne definitely... More

A 92nd Birthday - lunch party - The staff were friendly but not pushy - the food was a dream - a collection of most interesting tastes and textures - not too much but a little more than many nouvelle cuisine restaurants. The ambiance is good and the prices where not excessive for this class of establishment. My only comment... More
