We came back again to this small and nice restaurant. We had souris d'agneau and joue de boeuf.....truly tasty!!! We also had home made babbà al rum, again just delicious. They have an amazing wine choice!!! The service is always funny, efficient and professional!

We went there for a nice three course menu and everything was perfect: nice entrée (mushrooms), main course (wonderful pieces of meat) and delightful dessert (warm chocolate cake) I would recommend it to every colleague visiting Geneva!
