Great meal (taste, presentation, quality of ingredients), almost "Michelin star" level. Value for money seems fair (menu Grand Large). The service level though is variable and not perfectly coordinated, some room for improvement here (bread replenishment, dish description not always clear, etc.). I will certainly return to this restaurant for the next occasion.

Beautiful contemporary place at the lake. The food is delicious from the starter to the amazing desert. The presentation of the food is awesome. Very good service.

Good intention when it started with modern style, homeopathic doses. Creative enough, but how uncomfortable you feel if you don't play the local Yuppie new rich comedy. Go if you lake around...

Arrived on a Friday for lunch with my mother and 2 month old who was quietly napping in her carriage throughout the entire meal. The restaurant was semi full and it was a beautiful Autumn day so we accepted to sit outside on the terrace. At one point the wind picked up and it was gushing into my two month... More

I used the earlier recommendations as a factor in my selection. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly. We booked the terrace for a dinner. The five course was a good option. At evening it may get chilly, be ready for sweater or extra jacket.

Discovered by trip advisor the place on the lake of Divonne, 25 min. from Geneva is a real gem, very quite and nicely decorated in side as well as terrace . The service is professional and pleasant with no wait and right timing. Choice and quality of food and wine is almost justifying the price you are expected to pay.... More

We had a lovely 5 course meal on the terrace overlooking the lake. The starters were excellent as were the desserts. To my liking the main course lacked a bit of finesse but it may have been simply the wrong choice. Service was very pleasant and professional. We will definitively go back.

My husband booked the Rectiligne for lunch on my birthday - what a pleasant surprise. The restaurant has a very modern decor with views from every table onto the lake. The service was first class and the food was excellent. It was an expensive lunch, but worth it for a special occasion and somewhere I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had an excellent experience at Le Rectiligne today. Weather helped by allowing a terras table with views of the lakeside and jogging and otherwise active people while dusk slowly started to set in. The menus all looked promising but we went for the €70 five course one with wine supplement. All dishes were spot on and the wine selection daring... More

Went to the Rectiligne for my wife's birthday with my three daughters. Wasn't quite sure what to expect.We reserved a lovely table with a view on the lake. Chose the Euros 70 menu.My wife changed one dish without a fuss. The foie gras was very good and a sizeable portion.Loved the scallops with mushrooms. Fish was just right and again... More
