Saturday eve in February, completely booked, we reluctantly accept to be seated in the annex (separate entrance). Usually not a good idea. This turned out to be perfect: a mini-restaurant to yourself, stylish yet relaxed, apéro on the lounge chairs, dinner on the long table, own choice of music, etc. Moreover, they didn't forget about us; indeed, we got better...

Went as a family of five.The settings are lovely.Typical Carouge bistrot style.Service is good and very freindly.Food was a let down.Though not being bad I would have expected something more from Philippe Chevrier.Still a nice place to go and enjoy a relaxed evening.

Food is on the better side of average. Staff very courteous and helpful though not to be trusted on the selection of wine. Its in carouge making the setting cool. Beware the inside is stuffy in summer.

The staff and setting are excellent. The food is good but not mind blowing. A very nice place to go for a business lunch or other formal event.

Refined food in a relaxed yet elegant setting. It's not cheap, but by Geneva standards what you pay is very much justified by the delicious food & attentive service.

A classic bistro in Carouge with French flavours. Ideal for business meeting in the basement, with an exclusive large table set among all their wines (yes, in the wine cellar!) Good service, tasty food and an environment to talk business topics.

With friends I was looking for some restaurant that would give you good food, wine and good atmosphere. While the wines were good, service very attentive and friendly, we were all disappointed by the food. It was all right, but considering that the place is supposed to be a little bit more gastronomic than average place in Carouge, there was... More

It is indeed a legendary eating place in Carouge, Geneva. However, it is very pricy in my view. I attended a birthday dinner of a friend and the menu was 60 CHF (around 60 US $). I am vegetarian, but there was no vegetarian main course on the menu. However, the chef was kind enough to prepare rather nice mushroom... More
