Lovely buffet breakfast. Coffee is not great but OK compared to many other Swiss cafes. Salad bar, pastry, bread, fruits, eggs, sausages etc. all the standard fare you'd expect. And it's all delicious. I would recommend it and would return of the opportunity arose. One note: this hotel is popular for business travel and so the breakfast is full of... More

We ate here daily for 8 days during a stay at the hotel and we were not disappointed. The prices are high but that is typical of Geneva and not surprising. At least here the food is good and there is a great variety to choose from if you do choose the buffet breakfast. Although the people who frequent this... More

Since my employer is nearby this hotel, I stay for a week or 10 days a few times a year. Still, that is not that often, and yet, the friendly, attentive and exceptional wait staff at the Starling Café always make me feel like they missed me every time they see me! And since there is no tip system in... More

The place is nice and calm to eat for a business lunch. My experience was awful since I ordered a vegetarian course: wok of vegetables and tofu with green curry. It was extremely spicy and looked more like a coconut milk soup with some vegetables. It's true that there was a lot of tofu (generous proportion) but as I had... More

Only had breakfast, but ate here > a dozen times over several trips. Decent selection, but I have a personal bias against runny scrambled eggs on the hot food section. Omelette bar looks good but it opens too late for me to take advantage. Also, it is a European thing but the "cold" still and carbonated mineral water is only... More

Not a lot to say but it is a hotel cafe and I have breakfast here every morning. I think it average in every way, nothing sticks out as exceptional. If you are here on business and need to eat it is servicable.
