There is hardly a more charming lake-side terrace than this one. The food is very good. Although the ambiance inside in the winter isn't that great at the moment, the new young team have plans to correct this.

I've eaten here over the years but not recently until today, and I won't be going back. Surly service, very average food and indifferent ambience. It felt like going back 30 years. Brasserie Lipp is in another league.

The menu is primarily Italian with some fresh seafood and seasonal game offering. Our group had some pasta, risotto, grill seafood and pheasant. The food was very good. The service was a little slow but fine for a business lunch.

Thi sretaurant serves a wonderful dinner with lake view. It is as most of the restaurant s in Geneva quite expensive but the food is good and the service good. If you want to dine higher segment then this is a good choice.

I live in Geneva. I like the food selection at this place, the prices are reasonable for simple dishes and the location is, I would say unique, by the water. But its a bad place to go if you are very hungry and you want to have your food soon.

Went there with the whole family, as it looks busy and they were welcoming, the food is good, but their service is terrible, the manager would notice but would not help his staff, and they were very busy with other things and only few of them, with this place and its size they need to have more waitress.

Came for lunch to a restaurant only 75% full and was shown a back table inside. The maitre d' did not even make eye contact when giving me the menu. Was about the walk out when my order was taken so curiosity kept me here. Two couples who came after me were served their food first. Food is ok but... More

While walking along the lake we stopped here for lunch and drinks. It was a good meal and drinks for an average price.
