Their flagship is the Caravelle steak, which also comes in two larger formats. I had the medium one (Super Caravelle) and it was more than enough, you better be hungry! Great quality and great service. Highly recommended if you are in the area!

I have been in this restaurant many times and always had a great evening with friends and great food. I can recommend this place especislly for steak: the speciality is "Caravelle" and the special is the extremely tasty sauce (garlic and fatty). It comes with a small side salad with bread, french fries. I never left this place spending less... More

I was a part of a very large group of people. The food was enjoyable, slightly on the expensive side but this has to be expected in Geneva. Might visit again.

Some colleagues and myself were invited by our manager to share a lunch, a few days ago. Even if the restaurant is very close from our office, I never went there... What a mistake! The decor is aviation related, hence the name of the restaurant... And the names of the signature meals too: Caravelle, Super Caravelle and L'A380 (pieces of... More

The Spot is close to the airport and I was on my way to France. Personally I was expecting a bit more "aeronautical environment" in this spot, since it is almost as a regular eating place. Service is fine as well as the food: I went for the Lasagne. In resume, just an ordinary place with nothing special on it.

The restaurant is located just a few minutes by foot from the airport. Their specialty are steak and burgers but they do have other things For the steaks they have that unique yellow sauce you can see on the pictures. It is just awesome. That sauce only justifies your visit there. if you visited the place a few years ago,... More

Every year business brings me once to Geneva and eyery time a dinner at the L'avitation is a must-do. The Super Caravelle is simply amazing as are the fries and the included salat plus - and not to forget - the sauce that comes with it. Thanks to the recommendation we enjoyed a very nice bottle of local Pinot Noir... More

I had business lunch there. The place was packed , but service still swift, fast and friendly. We all had the famous Steak - Frites Caravelles, with the home made bearnaise like sauce. Top. We were in and out in one hour, perfect for lunch!

Very nice business dinner into this informal restaurant near the airport. Lot of space can be used for bug dinners, but I strongly suggest a reservation because on Wednesday was really full of people (can’t imagine during the weekends!). Lot of us went for the Caravelle: a steak served with French fries and garlic souce. Time to time it’s included... More
