Cafe Calla ia the breakfast restaurant for the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva. It offers a world class buffet albeit a little pricey. Ours was included in our room rate, thankfully. Good but expensive.

Dear Roman K, We are thankful you took the time to evaluate our breakfast too. Thanks for the great rating, it’s good to know you loved our generous gourmet breakfast buffet served at Café Calla. Booking a Bed & Breakfast offer is actually very interesting as the price for 2 breakfasts included in the room rate is extremely attractive. Otherwise,... More

We went to Cafe Calla for an evening meal and were very satisfied. My husband and I both enjoyed our dinners and the good service, for a price which is quite comparable with rest of Geneva - but the quality was definitely higher. Would definitely recommend it.

Having been to dinner at Cafe Calla a few times, we were very disappointed with their Sunday brunch. Don't get me wrong, the place is the same, service is excellent and presentation good.

I would not recommend this restaurant for breakfast. The food was average, it took much too long to even get coffee or water, the brunch was mediocre, and prices were too high for the experience.
