Having been recommended this restaurant by a 'foody' friend we thought we'd give it a go and were not disappointed - the restaurant itself is beautiful and beautifully located - the service was very good - efficient and yet not rushed - we enjoyed 3 courses each from 'Le Menu Gournand' which was EUR40, and coming from Geneva we thought...

When I visited my friend in Geneva, she took me to this special restaurant. She is coming here often and.....she did not lie a bit about their food. Good quality and the fish from the Lake was delicious. It is a cosy place to be and the atmosphere is relaxing. The staff is very helpful and friendly. When you visit... More

We had (wrongly) assumed that this place would serve a different kind of food to the usual "tourist traps" in Yvoire because of the Michelin sticker on the board out front. Not so. The view is nice, the tables comfortable and the waiters ok. The champagne kir was nice. But the food was quite honestly terrible, from starter to desert.... More

its not fine dining, but the portions are excellent and the quality is very good. i had the local speciality of perch from the lake and an addictive rose wine. the deserts were awesome, and i recommend the chocolate confection. the view across the lakeis atmospheric and you can eat as you watch the sunset.

Two "seniors", we were warmly welcomed by attentive staff who ensured we were comfortably seated, giving us a choice of inside or terrace dining. The meals we had were delicious and very attractively presented. The advice we received about appropriate wines for our meals was spot on. The interior decor is an interesting blend of old and new and the... More

It is the second time I eat in this restaurant, and probably not the last time. Excellent meat and 'filets de perche'. Lovely decoration and very friendly staff. In summer we can eat outside and admire the lake view. I recommend!
