In a city as expensive as Geneva, it is surprising to find somewhere this cheap that isn't fast food. But then again, the speed with which this tiny kitchen churns out tasty food, you could say it is! We managed to squeeze a table for two inside on a Monday lunchtime amongst the crowds in the small restaurant. The servers... More

Returned to what is undoubtedly my favorite place in the Old town all round (food/service/value for money). Was not disappointed with another fabulous Penne with sautéed prawns but in XL format for a 5 franc supplement only enough to feed you for 24hours... Got to know the 3 members Laurence the manager, Evelyn the waitress and David the cook who... More

After having heard about this restaurant for quite a while and reading the numerous positive reviews I decided to see for myself what the fuss was all about and I was not disappointed. We ordered 2 plats du jour (Penne with "Harristo" sauce and sautéed prawns which was beyond excellent) , 1 soft drink, 2dl of red wine and the... More

In a city that is overrun with expensive places to eat, it was a pleasure to find this pocket restaurant with a simple menu at a reasonable price. There are only a few tables, and only a few items on the menu, but I think you can't go wrong.

In addition of being super nice and accomodating, the food is simple but delicious, and quite fairly priced for Geneva. I had the truffle pasta which I absolutely loved!

We had spent some time walking around Place du Bourg de Four and wanted a break from the cold and a quick drink. There was quite a few on offer so we picked this place as there were a few people inside. The others mainly looked a little cold and uninviting compared to this. It is a lovely little place... More

First attempt here and when looking at the prices on display i assumed i would better opt for the "large portion" supplement (5 francs added to the main's price)... Needless to say I did not have to do that ! I was served a huge bowl that would have easily be enough for 2 well built and hungry males and... More

We used trip advisor and picked this place and we are go glad we did. We arrived at 1330 and missed the lunch crowd so getting a table was no problem. The staff was great, food was fantastic. I had the pesto penne with rocket and ham, yum. My honey had the burata cheese salad and it was great. The... More
