“Reconnect into your inner self via Cottage-Cafe's authentic culinary art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

This magnificent piece of paradise is located in a dreamy garden at the center of Geneva's beating heart.
Appropriate to its location, Cottage-Cafe offers its guests an exciting & (almost) totally homemade (!!!) culinary experience as well as a breathtaking tour guide through the chef's incredible sense of imagination.

Each course is carefully assembled out of the Switzerland's finest ingredients. The composition constantly reveals a complex structure of both hidden & exposed tastes.
I've managed to try-out almost everything on the menu (on my 3 encounters with this palace of culture) & must say that I (a hardly contempt person) was amazed each time...

Last (but certainly NOT the least) I feel obligated to recommend the heavenly desserts that are constantly served with a delicate touch of an aesthetic decoration.

PS
1. Don't forget to make a reservation - or else you'll be left out...
2. Don't forget to visit the "inside" (meaning - don't just dine on the terrace & leave) - since the interior design is as memorable as the meal...

Bisous...

“Great outdoor location in Geneva”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

A delightful place to spend a soft summer evening in Geneva. We shared a wide range of dishes for the tapas menu. There was a good variety and they were well executed. But I wouldn't say anything was particularly exciting or innovative. Prunes wrapped in bacon are yummy, but my mum was making them in the 70s. You can get labne or hummus with pita, some cheese plates, courgette stuffed with lamb, and other items of this ilk. The aubergine is pretty good, but where is the value in half an avocado for 10 francs? The wait staff are fairly good, for Geneva, although we waited a very long time for them to take our drinks order. I'd return for the ambience and the opportunity to eat outside in the park setting rather than for the food.

“Sadly, closed on holidays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Sadly, could not get in since it was a holiday, but I went the next day during my after dinner walk to check the menu and the atmosphere - both were delightful, and everyone very friendly, too, so I will definitely be back next time I am in Geneva.

“Great place for tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

It is just a couple minutes away from the lake, but you can easily miss it. They serve tapas (large variety) and everything we tried was tasty. The atmosphere is very pleasant too. I was told that the breakfast is also worth trying.
