“Our local and favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We've been living in the Gex area for the past 9 months and continue to revert back to Refuge Florimont after each disappointing visit to other restaurants in the area. Florimont offers great service, a local feel, a view better than any in the region, great value compared to its cousins closer to Geneva and most importantly, great traditional food.

We love it and have not found a better place in the area. Book in advance though. They also have a great terrace with a view on Mont Blanc for an aperitif or even to eat if the weather allows.

“Great restaurant, great atmosfaire, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

The restaurant is 20 minutes by car, from Geneva, Switzerland. The service is great. Although it is better to make a reservation before, especially the weekends. If not it is unlikely possible to find a table.
The food is great. We always order the "pierade" which is a stone where you grill different types of meat on your own. The deserts are unbelievably great. The portions are huge so be careful with how much you're going to order.
The restaurant is very nicely - Alpes style, decorated. It offers a panoramic view at the Alps, but only when the weather allows it.
It is not very cheap, though it is totally worth it. And it isn't more expensive than the other Geneva restaurants.
