Lovely decor. Pleasant, quiet atmosphere. Excellent service. Aperatives served with tasty bites. Tempting starters. We shared a huge plate of foie gras. The menu offered meat and fish choices. The main courses (in our case, pintade and pavé de lieu) arrived at exactly the right...More

Small menu but every plate perfectly presented and very tasty. Little touches such as nibbles and bread provided. Good wine list and reasonable prices by the glass as well as by the bottle.

Nice small garden terrace area to eat outside. The menu choices were good and the price for the luncheon menu was reasonable for the Geneva area. Food was delicious.

It was the first time that we went to the secret de philomene. The Waiters are very nice and we really enjoy the food. It was so nice for American people to enjoy a very nice cheese cake and also the flavours of our dinner....More

What thieves! For there is no other name for the new owners. They sell air and want cash...No value for money what so ever. We were outraged and felt so cheated when the dishes arrived. We knew the place before the owner changed - big...More
