excellent restaurant

Chef Benoit has proved his image as one of the best worldwide. All dishes were of extremely high standard, perfect use of materials. Excellent wine list, consulting the somellier for advice for a perfect match with the food is a must.

After Girardet, Rochat, another great chef is now in charge of this most famous restaurant! Benoît Violier has taken up the chalenge and brought it to a new level. Absolutely beautiful meal, Thank you Worth the trip as they say in a famous guide.

My wife and I had dinner at Violier last Saturday night. We arrived a bit early. We were warmly greeted and decided to start with an aperitif in the cigar room (fortunately there were no cigar smokers at this time - although if you are a cigar enthusiast this room will be heaven for you!) We took the house champagne... More

Superb in all respects. Truly a fantastic restaurant. We got the chef's surprise menu which was delicious. Not one dish that was not good. All of the 7 courses were amazing. Reasonable prices and a very nice wine card. Will definitely go back there!

The facilities were very nice with a modern feel. Champagne aperitif was delightful. My husband ordered a bottle of Swiss wine, and was told they were out of it. For a... More

The fine dining experience there changed my view of gastronomic restaurants, by allowing us to see their magical work behind the scenes. Of course everything was done at the highest level possible. Terrific service, unique flavors and a very elegant presentation. We were seated at a table in the kitchen (booked well in advance) and had a chance to admire... More

We have heard the reputation of the restaurant since Girardet and Rochat owned the restaurant, but we never have chance to book it during the Friday and Saturday over 3 past years. It’s always overbooked. Now the Chef Benoit owns the place and we decided to go regardless the weekend availability. We could book the dinner on Thursday night for... More
