“Great wine bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I really enjoyed food and wine here. I did not have a full dinner--a number of small plates, all of which were excellent. They have a great wine list.

“FAKE!!!! .ALL IS MICROWAVE !!!! They make you pay a fortune for something not freshly cooked!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

All is fake!!! Bad service! Wines are cheap from south of France but they charge you as a very good Bordeaux and make you think it's special! Also they don't cook there....ALL IS MICROWAVE !!!! They make you pay a fortune for something not freshly cooked! A scandale, I think I am going to inform the press.
Don't go there, in Geneva you have lovelly wine bars worth it and very central-:)

“Great wine bar by the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

If you manage to get a table, or have booked one, it's a great bar to sip a good wine with friends. They also serve some food/snacks. Great for afterworks. I've been quite a few times and really enjoye it. But I only go in the summer as I like sitting outside, enjoy an early drink with friends or colleagues.

“Popular river-side wine bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I have been here multiple times with small to large groups. The experience is reliable with good wine and service. Towards the late evening when the crowd gets dense, the service does get slower and the place looses some of its nice atmosphere as people pack in. But it is a great place to share a bottle of wine with friends in the afternoon or early evneing. If you can get one, the outdoor tables provides a good view. The finger foods that come with the wine is great.

“Nice wine and aperos - altho cramped and a bit crabby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

This tiny wine bar, with atmospheric stone walls and large wooden tables for communal seating, is a charming (and rather pricey) find in Geneva. The sommeliers, while knowledgeable, can turn a bit snooty when you do not run with their first recommendation. The menu is "in their head," so you must inquire about pricing if you're concerned about costs. (Prix fixe menu is also available on their website.) I had a nice time with friends there after work, but the room's acoustics can be tricky for meaningful conversations and you definitely need to make reservations - even if just for a glass of wine - for peak hours. If the day is nice, opt for the outdoor patio with views of Lac Leman.
