A wonderful location beside Lac Leman and close to Jet D'eau and ate there on a beautiful summer's day so was able to sit outside. The food was very good and at our table of 5 we had pizza, pasta, veal and a chicken dish. Everyone enjoyed their meal and service was attentive and they weren't trying to rush us... More

We had just climbed the towers at the Cathedral of Saint Pierre, and came down towards the river to grab a quick dinner. We saw this lovely restaurant and went in. Without a reservation we were seated outside. The server was lovely. The menu is Italian. Very good quality food. The salad and pasta was excellent. And they gave us... More

The location is nice and this is the only positive points. Portions are abundant... but food is of low quality (which sounds like a punishment!). The restaurant is extremely noisy and full of families with (impolite and wild) kids.

Very nice location, but only if you are lucky to get the right table. Otherwise you just enjoy food, but not the view. The food and wine was ok for us, good but nothing extraordinary. As per service... it was way too slow. So do not come here very hungry as you are not getting your food quickly.

Located right next to Lake Geneva, this restaurant offers one of the best view while dining. Food is nice, but nothing exceptional. Bar has nice collection of wines.

This is an amazing place to go on a sunny day. Right by the lake with a great terasse you can have a great meal sipping a glass of wine. The food is overall good (nothing extraordinary) and with a large selection so anyone can find something of their liking. The service could be improved as it feels like there... More
