Excellent steaks, just go for them. This is one of the best steakhouse in Geneva I have tried. Add to that exemplary service. The fries melt in your mouth

Very friendly staff who put up with my terrible french! The fondue was fabulous - came with bread and we ordered some extra meat, was delicious and filling. Lovely ambience too, will definitely be back!

It was my first time to eat the cheese fondue and it was perfect! In addition, I requested home made tart which was very delicious! Also, decaf coffee is available. The place is cosy and more like an old well maintained and decorated house. Waitress...More

You can take the number 3 bus going in the direction of Gardiol to get here, the stop is Grand Sacconex if I remember right (just ask where the church is). The cafe is quaint and has a rich history. Absolutely loved the fondue here,...More
