The menu seems attractive but the choice we made ( entrecote, steak tartare and Roesti) didn't match the expectation in terms of excellence of the preparation. For instance on the menu the steak tartare is described as to be assembled at the table according to...More

Nice and quiet location, good food (salad and bisque), though I can understand that the dry wittiness from the waiter can be mistaken as rudeness by some. A bit slow cleaning of the table. I would come back though.

Had a nice evening meal here. The food is nice although the menu is quite limited. The wine list is also quite good. On a nice summer evening the alfresco eating on the pavement is very pleasant. Prices a bit high but that's normal for...More

The food is nice especially for such a tourist area on Sunday~ a pretty good choice after walking up so many stairs wandering around for a nice resting place. The price is also reasonable for Geneva standard.

It took them 20 mins to approach my table after I finished my dish! Knowing that there're only 2 tables other than mine. Food is average not wow! Actually I wanted to order coffee and dessert but was afraid to be late.

This is a traditional genevan restaurant in the heart of the vielle ville in Geneva. Great for anyone who is visiting the place or who likes the historical feeling of this part of town. Given that we are in Geneva, prices are actually very affordable....More

What's better than sitting outside, with a view of beautiful old buildings, with an evening temperature of 25º C? That's Genéve for you. The restaurant was completely full, and we were lucky to get a table after waiting a few minutes. My wife had "bavette...More
