Although you need a reservation for inside, there is no reason to be worry because outside is the beauty. With the lake at your feet (and a blanket also at your feet) a beer or a coffee during the night is almost magical ... if the weather is .... perfect.

Cottage Cafè is not only an affordable place where you can have lunch or enjoy your break, but also a magical spot! Highly recommended during your stay in Geneva!

Lunch at cottage café was simply amazing, the view, the service, the food, the vibe, the ambience...all the stars aligned here to make it a lovely lunch for us. Risotto, fusilli finished with chocolate fondant with thyme ice cream, everything bite was like food poetry. Fresh ingredients, fresh flavors, crisp veggies, deep flavors and smiling faces makes this place the... More

It was something after 10 pm my friend and I wanted to have nice glass of wine. We went to this cafe and found a nice table. We asked for the menu. Some people were still eating or having dessert. The waiter wanted to bring us the drinks' menu. Right after having served a couple on the table beside us... More

Be ready to pay extremely high prices for very small tapas of average quality. Cheaper to book plane to Spain and have them there.

We had a light evening meal here on a warm September evening. We reserved a tablet as it's always busy. The service was good, the food excellent and the atmosphere friendly. The four of us orders 8 tapas and shared. Loved everything but the price - ouch! But it was value for money and not bad for Geneva.

A colleague living in Geneva brought us there for dinner. Nice settings in a green spot in the middle of town. Service was pleasant. Food not bad, but nothing exceptional

This restaurant has a number of things going for it: it's well located centrally in Geneva, it's in a small park, if you're with kids they can play while you eat and keep an eye on them, and it's unpretentiousness means that your expectations as a customer will be moderate and hopefully easy to meet. This mostly happens food-wise. Nothing... More

We highly enjoyed our meal. The menu is a bit special, since (at night) you only get tapas choice. You have a very vast list of tapas so it takes some time to chose :) the food is very good and the dishes are delightful. The highlight is the terrasse in summer. Very beautiful and big. Right by the lake,... More
