This is one very pleasant place. Excellent products that are not oversold, simple mixture of flavors, very solid basics and a few twists in the seasoning that make you happy. Not the level of starred tables but simpler with extremely good dishes for a special occasion. Service is efficient, professional but friendly, location is urban but central and quiet, and... More

Its not in the Old Town. Or by the lake. But once you find this gem of a restaurant, you are yearning to go back. Impeccable service and tasty meals...I had the mushroom appetizer with the Poulet main course with the risotto. The Fromage tray and desserts capped off the terrific dining experience. It is expensive but you are in... More

Just ran in from the rain on a one night stay in Geneva. not a very promising area but a real find. Just a few courses on the menus but really special. Skipped the starter but the kind & attentive waiter gave me a little amuse-bouche. The fillet of beef with unusual kale chips was lovely & ratatouille contrasted nicely.... More

I’ve known chez Jacky for years. I never thought much about it, but as I got older, and the restaurant didn’t, it started to get character and today could well be described as pleasingly old-fashioned. It’s a bit like time-travel: the decor is 1950’s or 1960’s, bourgeois. As is the clientèle. The tables are nicely laid, and the waiters are... More

Chez Jacky doesn't look like much from the outside, or the inside. But that's only a deception. It seems like a common place where locals go for lunch. Being there already 3-4 times most of them seem regulars. And I'm not surprised. The food is simply the best I ever had in Geneva, a true feast for your tongue. Chez... More

This is the second time we've eaten here, this year again around Autumn time to taste the chasse menu. Service was very friendly but a little slow though the restaurant was very full. We didn't mind though as they made up with friendliness and excused themselves too. The food was well worth the little wait, we will certainly be back.

I went there with Friends and all of us liked it. The food was great as well as the deserts. It is expensive, but not different from Geneva usual prices.

This place serves well-prepared classic food; it has a super dessert trolley, and the room is classically elegant, quiet, great for conversation. The location close to the station, but on a quiet side street, is also convenient. The service is very charming, but awfully slow -- we waited over 20 minutes to get a menu, and the speed didn't pick... More

We had an fantastic dinner at Chez Jacky from A to Z. The menu was diverse, creative and very tasty. We had a creme soup and a sort of carpaccio with home made bread, then an excellent beef with potato casserole, then a cream cheese cake as desert. The restaurant offers a rich choice of vines and they are able... More
