I visited the cantine des commerçants some 6-7 years ago, but could not remember the name as I wanted to to get back. Suddenly out of the blue that restaurant popped up on my search. I tried it last night. The ambiance and environment did not changed too much. The owner is new, he bought couple years ago. We had... More

The restaurant has a nice and cozy location, but for the rest it doesn’t deserve at all the comments made on this page. It is an expensive restaurant, with bad food, and terrible service. It took almost 20 minutes until they decided to give us the menu, and other 15 minutes until they decided to bring the wine and water... More

Lovely dinner for a special occasion - birthday. Staff went out of their way to give us a great experience, a first in Geneva! Food was very tasty, French style and very reasonably priced at 48f. the 3 course menu. Maybe the decor, rather cold to my taste, did not win 5 stars. But I give an extra one to... More

The service is irreproachable. Nice and warm welcoming, the food is quickly served, but I was really not impressed. Yes it is visually very nice, but the food is really not that great and it is very expensive.

Dear Mr Corto, Thank you for sharing your experience in our restaurant. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations, although your comment remains, surprisingly, extremely different from the feedback you gave us Saturday evening. We understand it is easier for you to express yourself via trip advisor instead of giving us an honest review directly. We are very... More

I everyday walk in this street and never stopped to see this restaurant. I saw one recommendation and decided to try! What an amazing food! Staring with the bread, the free entree sample of cheese and tomato, the tuna tataki and the AUbergine! Everything really done with excellence !

This is absolutely one of the best restaurants in Geneva town. The Food, ambiance, and the lovely friendly staff will make your day or night a memorable experience. Try the Entrees such as Salad de Jeunes Pousses, or the tasty Tataki de Thon Albacore, both are expended starters. I would recommend either the Fillet de Canette de Barbarie, or the... More

This must be one of the most welcoming restaurants we've visited: we came a little overdressed (assuming a well-reviewed Geneva restaurant required at least diamonds and a monocle), but our hostess Natalie immediately removed our self-consciousness to make us feel at home. Natalie's hospitality was the best we have experienced bar none: the house aperitif wasn't quite to taste, she... More
