We had a great family meal. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and the view fantastic. They have an excellent weekday lunch set menu - really good value for money.

To get to the restaurant you need to go up little bit to the mountain but it's worth it because the view is so nice when the weather is clear. Reservation recommended and better to specify to have "the seat with good view". When my...More

The Florimont is usually fully booked and no wonder. We reserved and took friends and found the quality as good as ever. The restaurant had newly opened after a short break and the staff were warm and enthusiastic. We like the fondue there but like...More

Beautiful mountain chalet, overlooking geneva, the lake and the alps. Great regional dishes mainly based of cheese or meat. Perfect destination if you want to escape from the cities and enjoy the wonderful panoramical view.

This a very typical mountain restaurant. Nice and warm. Friendly people and excellent cheese Fondue, Tartiflette, Raclette, Pierrade etc.. Also the price is a good surprise, considering the average of the area. It's always a pleasure to have a meal at the Florimont.

We have regularly dined in Le Florimont for years and are always warmly welcomed. The three dining rooms are decorated in Alpine chalet style and the dishes are what you expect at 1000 metres, near a ski resort - fondue, tartiflette, and pierrade etc. The...More

This a warm restaurant located on the winding road from Geneva, Switzerland, to the Col de la Faucille top, France. On a nice sunny day, it offers a great view of Lac Léman, along with the Mont Blanc in the background. Food served is hot and tasty, with the best-sellers being the 'tartiflette' (French dish from the Haute Savoie region of France, made with potatoes, reblochon cheese, cream, and lardons), 'sauciflette' (a variation of tartiflette with sausage instead of lardons) and 'pierrade' (a form of barbecue in which thin slices of meat are cooked on a heated stone and served with sauces, salad and potatoes). The menu has a variety of dishes, with kids' portions, good deserts, pleasant atmosphere and decent staff. Prices are quite reasonable.
