Million dollar view for the rest of us

Charly's is right on Lake Geneva and you have great, romantic views either from the lakeside tables or from the upstairs, enclosed, dining room. Eating lunch (between noon and 2 pm) doesn't cost any more than elsewhere so this is a bargain (figure around $20 USD without drinks). Like other Swiss... read more

Well nothing is cheap in Switzerland so while I want to say this is overpriced.....for Switzerland it is good value for money! A great place to try the lakes catch - Perch fillets - Filet de Perche!

The restaurant is located on the upper floor and has great views of the lake. The dishes are varied and the wine list is of good value. If you speak French you get a better service than if you are an anglo tourist - just try to adapt and don't think the world runs according to US/UK standards...

The worst owner/manager of any restaurant we have ever visited. It was unbelievable. It was a grey haired guy. He raised his voice and said, "This is switzerland and this is how we do it" when we said we have come for a few drinks and will decide later on what food to order. He said, " you dont know... More

Wrong food severed, staff un apologetic, very rude staff. Refused to serve correct order saying kitchen was closed when we could clearly see food being served. They refused to deduct error from bill saying 3/4 had been eaten but they did offer a cup of coffee by way of compensation which we refused as this was not adequate. We visited... More

We ate at Charley's last night. We had a lovely table and the staff were efficient. Glass was found in one of our meals. The dish was replaced with no explanation and "sorry" from the waitress. Nothing was deducted off the bill nor was there a complimentary glass of beer. Won't be back

Nice place, nice view on the lake side but the kitchen has to offer much more. Nice pictures on a kind menu cart, but the served meals are not looking and perhaps not tasty at all.

I had a friend visiting me and we happened into Charleys for lunch. I had a steak which was very good - especially by Swiss standards! My friend had the Perche - fish from the lake. They are very small - fingerlings really but they make up for that by giving you more than you can eat! Both entrees came... More

we decided to stop at Charly's to enjoy the sun and feed the baby not to assist a fight btw the waiters! The blaming and shouting didn't stop there, then they continue with the clients. It was embarrassing to presence this poor expectable. As soon as our baby finish eating we pay and left. The food OK

We had a table overlooking the lake. Then it got a bit cold and dark so they closed the windows. I imagine that when it is real summer this place rocks! Food was really good, the service professional. They have a few tabels down on the promanade but every time we tried they were full.
