With its excellent location right in frot of the lake, with its excellent location right below well off Quai de Seujet apartment dwellers, this restaurant should be making so much more money.

But I won't go there again. I went because the location was great, the website had pretty pictures and there were some positive comments on restorang, but was very disappointed with the decor (old, tired, faded and dark), food (below average, didn't taste fresh, looked pre-prepared and microwaved), price (expensive for the rather low quality), service (the waiter tried but I think he was tired too.)

This restaurant has great potential but unrealized. Change or retrain the management. Then it might be worth going back.

I would rarely or never put such a review on a business, as it effects peoples lives and jobs.

I did look at their website and menu before the visit, it looked promissing. The website photos are deceiving.

However tonight I went to Bistrot du Rhone with my family. 2 adults and 3 children and the bill was CHF 250- = about $280

So you would expect excellent or good service. Food not, service was average.
Yes the service was fine and agreed by my wife.

However, the Food was really disapointing. overcooked vegitables and small portions of dry 'Fillet du Perche'.
Also the entercote had rubber veins (cheep quality) and the Syrian Moutabal was sour (but its grilled eggplant so way sour?)

Further the decor was like 'boof', even the children commented about the ugly curtains and huge mirrors on the walls, they asked why are they there?

Oh I almost forgot, there is no Childrens menu.

Dont was your time or money, any discount is not worth the disapointment. Better go to McD

I am/did warn you.
