Nice local place; great food!

Nice variety of wines and beer. Great oysters on half shell. Tried calamari, Brie & veggie sandwich, hummus, and cod &clams. Pasta dish good, too. Creme brûlée to top it off. Casual and friendly.

Nice little find in Geneva. Unconventional choices come off very well. Friendly service and reasonable prices. The strawberry shortcake dessert was not your usual fare, but was excellent!

Could see this as being a good place to hang-out with friends on a Friday night, if I lived in Geneva, that is. As it was, just had a quick dinner and a drink. Korean Chicken Wings were great! Gyro was OK - pita would have been better warm than cold - but the tzatziki sauce was the best I've... More

The food is great! It stands above typical bar food but is priced well. The staff is friendly and the place is cozy and clean. Its refreshing to have unique food options in a small city.

Intimate bar with an interesting and varied menu. Late night snacks offered - love the hummus with warmed pita slices. Falafal is my favorite. Shrimp Pil-Pil is very popular. Fried Chickpeas are surprising good. Taking "Bar Food" to a whole new level of deliciousity! Always a friendly crowd and staff.

Very nice beer and wine selection. Interesting specials posted on chalk board, appears to be a haunt of Hobart staff. May be crowded but worth it.
