Description
Under the experienced eye of Chef Nasser Jeffane, Café Calla offers delicious Modern French cuisine, favouring seasonal themes and locally-sourced produce. Personally selected by our sommelier, wines from our 1500-bottle cellar provide the perfect accompaniment to the menu. Guests can be accommodated in the beautifully-decorated 120-seat dining room, on the shaded Parisian-style terrace or in an exclusive private dining room for 10, decorated in a rustic Swiss Chalet style. With spectacular views over the river and a relaxed ambiance, Café Calla is the preferred choice for hotel guests and locals. Café Calla features a weekly Sunday Brunch with special children's entertainment, as well as regular culinary weeks hosted by famous international chefs such as Thierry Marx, Marc Veyrat, Pierre Gagnaire, Hélène Darroze, and Anton Mosimann.
