Unfortunately this enjoyable place does not exist anymore. It closed its doors a while ago for reasons I don't know. Pity! Hope the previous tenants will surprise us with a new hang-out someplace somewhen.

La Comete is a must try and it is beautifully done. Quite big portion so be sure to share it. Funny and friendly owner that made fun of me asking for tap water... If only My French was good enough to get the joke... Had a vegetarian risotto which was nicely done. Definitely pricy even by Swiss standard.

Food to remember! Starters of unusually small squid (calamaretti) - melt in your mouth delicious - followed by scallops wrapped in ham and served with finely sliced shallots cooked with mustard. We've not had a better meal prepared for us for a long while, and were served with a smile and unhurriedly even though the restaurant was full. All this... More

We have been to Margaux on a few occasions, and I am sad to read that the restaurant will close at the end of March 2015, as the lease is not renewed. The food is well prepared and presented, and quality of ingredients is generally high. Foie gras and crispy calamaretti are excellent starters, and the 'catch of the day'... More

Like several restaurants of the area the MargauX does not disappoint. Very good soup, they have a meat specialty (Filet de bœuf « Comète » sur le réchaud) that left me unconvinced—but it may be a question of taste—good side dishes and very good desserts.

In that village there are several restaurants. Margaux has a reputation as being the most expensive. Now is expensive also always the best? Interior Design quite nice (although under the covers you will find old, used chairs and tables). The menu is mainly concentrated on their design menus (long, many plates, expensive). If you try to find easy food, food... More

I visited this restaurant in May of 2013 while with a group of international travelers. The service, food, and atmosphere were unforgettable. I highly recommend this place to any travelers or locals. Marcus and his staff were so wonderful! I am so glad our guide brought us here. Thanks Simon!

Visited mid week on a business trip with a large group served in the downstairs Cave. Despite some rude behavior by me and my colleagues (we had to take a conference call back to the States before the last course - the owner opened up the terrace on a cold night, even heating it for us!), the patience he displayed...

Great pity as nice atmosphere but as we were 5 women and all complained when faced with a main course garnished with a sliver of carrot peel and a baby asparagus and milky potato we had to eat with a spoon, our complaint was met with the dismissive comment that we were eating nouvelle cuisine. Sorry but we have all... More

It's practical to have this spot so close by because it is the "to-go-to" place for a fine meal in a pleasant environment. It has a bit the charm of a bistrot (especially when you chose to sit in the Library). The place is lively, filled with good-humoured folks. The menu is diverse and the meals are always of very...
