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...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...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.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...More
