We had a reservation for the Bistro and the taxi dropped us at the entrance to the main restaurant so they graciously escorted us through the kitchen where the chefs shook our hands and welcomed us to enjoy their food and indeed we did. The food and the service were fantastic and the menu prices in the Bistro are much less and as far as we could tell the only difference was the difference in décor. Go; you will love it. It made our 23rd anniversary special. The view from the terrace outside was spectacular.

Arrived here for lunch on a beautiful sunny day and was escorted to the fabulous terrace overlooking the lake and the Jura. Breathtaking views.
The team make you feel so welcome and special, they assisted us in making a lunch selection that was exquisite, along with the wines to accompany each dish. Great choices and every dish prepared to perfection, with combinations of flavours and textures that compliment and contrast perfectly. We (along with many other tables) had the pleasure to meet Tommy, a delightful and interesting character who is so, so passionate about food, wines and the restaurant. This passion is shared throughout the whole team there.
The Lion D'Or is a MUST STOP for anyone visiting Geneva, what ever the occasion, lunch or dinner, casual or formal occasion.

My husband and I had our wedding anniversary dinner in Dupont & Bryne (its new name). The view was exceptional, probably the best view of the lake in Geneva. I was not that impressed with the food compared to other restautants of its class and considering the high prices... My expectations were high so I was a bit dissappointed. Still, very good food and very good service. If you are not crazy about having the view, you can try its Bistro with more reasonable prices at the same quality.

A great location overlooking the lake. Once there you forget about anything. Great food despite few issues related to details. Good service, friendly and smiling. Good to see the chef too. VERY expensive restaurant but that's not only geneva but Cologny...

A great restaurant with a great view on to Geneva across the lake at night. Parking was insufficient, but the public parking lots and garages further up the hill offer many alternatives. The service is warm but restrained, the wine list superb, and the food is of excellent quality. As other reviewers have mentioned the price of the restaurant is definitely pricey, but worth it, particularly in the Geneva area where almost everything is expensive. Watch out for the speed camera driving back to downtown Geneva along the lake
