Nice old decor building, beutiful location (just outside ONU headquarters), warm welcome.
Ordered only main courses, without entreés.
20 minutes later, the food arrives, but one of the plates was wrongly ordered.
Both plates went back, and as a compensation, we were served one of the best soups I've ever tasted (Topinambours soup, a heavenly delicatessen)
As for the rest of the service, absolutely wonderful!

“Wonderfull evening”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Near the UN complex, in an old master house, it hosts one of Switerland's best Hotel school.
Opened for lunch, you can reserve it for private parties, just great.

“Excellent food, so-so service”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

We were well surprised by the food, very good and well presented. The setting was nice, and the service fast... even too fast: the staff was really in a hurry and at times they were literally running. It's a pity because all the rest was excellent. However, they were always corteous and if we happen to be in the area again we will go back.

“Beautiful setting, perfect terrace, uneven service, fine food, high price”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

Returned to this restaurant after a couple of years---it's a lovely setting and the food is very good indeed--original in presentations, with attention to pattern, texture and color. But ooh, the prices have gone up! As mentioned in most review it is a training place. Very courteous staff and students, but wow, expensive!

“Near the UN. Atmosphere is great.”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

This is cooking school in an old mansion right next to the UN. The staff are all very helpful and the food is almost on a par with some much more epensive places near San Francisco. In summer one cn eat outdoors under umbrellas, and the food is a bit more adventurous than what one finds in hotels. UN diplomatrs inthe obligatory black suites can often be seen at lunch (which appears to be theonly meal they serve).
