An impressive wine cellar rounds off the authentic gastronomic offering and completes the absolute sensory experience.

“Call me old fashioned....”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

The food was nice, but not as amazing as we hoped. We got some great service & some more arrogant service (my husband looked up the French for smile at one stage). We had to wait until we had ordered food for a drink because we preferred to have wine as an aperitif. The food waiter couldn't take a wine order and sommelier was already busy.

Slightly odd that the woman is handed a menu with no prices... Some may find it quaint, others chauvinistic.

Food was tasty and lots of variety on the menu degustation. Very filling. Loved the amuse bouche and starters.

Sommelier is a star.

“MICHEL ROTH IS THE BEST”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Excellent cuisine, top service, superb view and the best gastronomical business lunch possible in Geneva for a decent price 65CHF.
Superbe pre appetizer > cappuccino of cauliflower and roquette + almonds
Cailles prepared in two different fashion a true delicacy
Rabbit with a Verveine infusion and a emulsion of mash potatoes on the side
Carpacccio of Pineapple...

A++++
20/20

2* stars should easily be given by the Michelin Guide and The Gault & Millau should upgrade to 18,5 easily.

Bravo Chef Roth I had a fantastic time at the Bayview

“Awesome cuisine, awesome view”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Looking onto the peaceful Geneva Lake with Geneva fountain in sight, I totally enjoyed the delicious dinner here. Food are tastefully done with pre-appetizer, pre-dinner and pre-dessert dishes, all too yummy not to finish. I ordered a sole which came with 2 extra side dish of fresh morels and truffle. Chocolate souffle with vanilla ball center doused with Grand Marnier finished the perfect meal!

“tres suisse”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

At the Bayview the delightfully inventive dishes help keep diners' eyes off the lake (or stretching for a glimpse of Mont Blanc) and instead focused upon the surrounding tables to see what's coming next. The service is impeccable and if anything almost too staid. Sexy it isn't but classy it certainly is. And excellent value compared with some other European power-cities.
