we have been there with family, as we were meeting all together before I take plane to Spain for work, they brought us to this typical "art-nouveau" bistro with french inspiration & spanish owner.
Nice meat
desserts are fine, the TATIN is nice & yummy !
a bit too long but was ok cause the place is beautiful ´n a little bit oldschool´ish.
WILL BE BACK!

“A lucky find”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Was looking for something close to my hotel and agonised over this or the slightly smarter and more formal restaurant next door. This is a good restaurant decorated in bistro style with a menu to match. Food is good apart from the pudding. I had the tarte tatin which was incredible and the best I have ever had anywhere. This dish alone is worth the price of admission. Not cheap by international standards but reasonable in the context of Geneva. Very popular with locals which says it all.

“Nice food!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

Brasserie style, quite cosy and very much alive. Obviously a popular place as we could see many customers coming in without a reservation forced to leave immediately.
The cuisine is great in the pure French traditional style, for instance, the foie gras as the entree is great! Home made of course.
The portion are generous: a colleague had the smoked salmon salad and it was big.
Nice selection of main courses, and great desserts. The lemon meringue pie is excellent.
Beautiful wines list from all over Europe.
One point to improve is the service, definitely too slow. They are all nice, professional, smiling but obviously short of one or two when the restaurant is full.
It took them 25 mn before taking our order afte giving us the menu, and after 1 hour 30 mn in the restaurant we had only our entree served.
But a nice place on the whole!
