As indicated by the other reviewers and restaurant guides, this is a fabulous restaurant. The food was as beautifully presented as it was delicious. One example was the first course on the menu of the day we visited: a composed mix of incredibly finely-cut raw and cooked vegetables surrounding a circle of caviar-topped mousse. Each bite had a slightly different... More

This was our third michelin starred place within two weeks and without doubt the nicest experience. I am afraid that going to these fine restaurants within such a short period of time is not a really good idea but birthday celebrations were in order. We got slightly more accustomed to the quality of dishes and it was more difficult to... More

This restaurant is superb. We were a party of four and we all had the tasting menu. It was exceptional food accompanied by faultless service. We ended with a most interesting tour of the kitchen. Yes it is expensive even compared with 3 star establishments in London and Paris but it is worth the cost.

This is not a restaurant, it's a temple of taste. No words can express this unique and exquisite experience. Food in this restaurant is divine, but food is not all. The way it is presented, the way you are served, the beauty of each dish make your evening unforgettable. Benoît Violier is a wonderful young chef who is extremely friendly... More

I have been lucky to have experienced all the iterations of the restaurant.....Girardet, Rochat, and now Violier. All have been magnificent and it is silly to say which has been the best. Clearly Violier is superlative. Beginning to end every meal here is magical. I find myself thinking after the first dish that things can't get better, followed by the... More

Incredible restaurant...Three different cooks (Girardet, Rochat, Violier), all of them immediately rated *** in the Michelin guide. An the food, simply divine, inventive, with tastes I never thought it would be possible to feel in my palate. I went there as a kid for the first time, and I am now planning to bring my son to what is simply... More

No words can express how much we enjoyed this dinner, brilliant, wonderful, it's above all. We were also kindly offered the opportunity to visit the kitchen, if you can do so, please don't hesitate. I prefer not to go to restaurants for a few months to save enough money to go there.

We have lunched here 3 times in the last year and on each occasion we have had an absolutely fantastic meal. Benoit Violier is not just a great chef but also a very pleasant guy who spends time talking to all guests at their tables. In my opinion this is a much better restaurant than the Rochat era and the... More

Unfortunately I had not visited le Restaurant de l'Hôtel de Ville since the Freddy Girardet era... But the rumor is that Violier surpasses Rochat who surpassed the founder Girardet. Can world top gastronomy accommodate such rankings and judgments? I personally do not think so. 3 stars chefs are just the gods of culinary art, each with his or her touch,... More
