“Special experience, superb restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My second visit to this restaurant and as expected - excellent!
The service was brilliant with breads (yes - 's') freshly baked on site even better.

We had mouth watering foie gras for starters and probably the best steak I've ever had for mains, complemented by five star presentation.

Also, a wine list to die for.

It can do with slightly more ambient lighting. The stunning views over the lake Geneva area makes up for it though.

I have to echo other reviews on this site, it comes at a price. That said, I've spent a lot more on dinners not close to this quality in the Geneva area. So for that special occasion, it guarantees to do the trick. Ask me, it was my restaurant of choice for a first date in Switzerland and we recently returned to celebrate our first wedding anniversary ;)

“Superb - but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Special New Year's Eve menu incredibly good - too expensive for us to visit very often however - even if it is just 200 m from our house!

“Local pride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

I must admit to be a little biased, as we live in Arzier, and our tax money went partially into the recent renovation of the Auberge. Money well spent, as they did a very good job. View is stunning (we got the same from our living room), ambiance is cozy, even when crowded, food is excellent, local produce preferred, wine selection great. The chef and his wife are very kind people, yes, service may be slow at times, but they definitely do know their job. And then again, this is a place for a nice evening out, sit back, relax and enjoy. Expect to pay a little more than you probably would this far out from Geneva, and no, locals do not get a discount (much to our chagrin). Arzier is located between Nyon and St Cergue, if you do not want to drive you can take the train from Nyon, get off at Arzier and walk up the hill about 500 yards to the Auberge.

“Great food, good atmosphere, overwhelmed servers, a bit expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

We ate here recently, and even brought our dog. The interior of the restaurant has a good atmosphere and the food is quite good. We sat at a window which had a partial view over the Lac Leman valley and Mont Blanc which was nice. Although initially the service was very good, there were only 2 servers for more than 50 diners, and we had to at the end wait for ages for our final dishes and to ask for more wine and water, which detracted from the entire experience for us. They really need 3 servers for their rush/crunch times.
