“To celebrate winning a contract, we chose Le Chat-Botte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were a team of at least 10 and chose to celebrate a contract win at Le Chat-Botte. First, the hotel itself is beautiful... Hotel Beau Rivage is directly set on Lake Geneva and le Jet D'eau, so champagne at the piano bar with great service set the mood.

For the dinner courses, Le Chat-Botte put on a show with a 5 course meal including cheese plate. The service was impeccable, the food presentation and quality were fantastic, and the wine selection was perfect. I am an accidental choosy eater, allergic-to-this-and-that, I pulled the head waiter aside before sitting down, and they accommodated me with a genuine smile not a sly sneer.

This is a pricey dining experience, well worth your time, so let the restaurant assist you in setting up a table near the window overlooking Lake Geneva and you are sure to have a wonderful evening.

“Not as good as before”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

They live on their reputation.... it was a very good restaurant with innovative ideas. Nowadays you pay a lot (too much for what it is) for nice food but nothing at all exceptional.

“Worth its Michelin star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had a very nice three course lunch with wine. Although this was far from the best Michelin star restaurant I have been to, we had a really nice time and enjoyed all the dishes. One very nice tough was that the chef came out and asked us if we had been happy with our meal.
