The dinner menu was quite diverse, but fewer selections than I anticipated. On the expensive side, too. Still, the food was prepared and presented well, and the dining room to the left was pretty nice. Large crowd of locals and tourists. Was it an extraordinary meal, no. More than adequate, yes. Would I try it again, maybe if I was out on a business account again and trying to make a nice impression w/o going over the top! Seafood seems the best choice.

We went to the cafe for brunch with high given the wonderful old cafe feel. We ordered Eggs Benedict and also eggs and bacon, french toast, etc. Other than the cozy bright cafe atmosphere which I rated highly, the rest of the brunch experience food, service, value, cleanliness was disappointingly average.

The service was slow and one of the waiters was quite rude. We sent back the onion soup as it tasted like vinegar! The cod was good, as was the bourguignon. I wouldn't eat here again.

You find the restaurant at the south bank of Lake Geneve near Jardin Anglais in the pedestrian area. Inside its very elegant, but as the weather was perfect we decided to choose a table outside.
The service was fast and friendly and the seafood superb and fresh. We had a wonderful seafood platter to start with and a excellent Fisherman's Stew and a grilled seabass as main courses. All very good!
You have to accept that the prices in Switzerland and especially in Geneve are expensive for other nationalities.

Even the place is amazingly situated in the walking center of the city, our last visit was really disappointing.

The service was truly poor, so was the food.

The oyster didn't seem fresh, other dishes were rather mediocre, while the bill was high-
