Finding a restaurant open on Sunday lunchtime in Geneva is tricky so this is a treasure. The architecture and situation is lovely. From our table we could watch the ice skaters and chess players outside having whetted our appetite with a stroll around Geneva Old Town.
Sunday Brunch is a delicious buffet including: breakfast cereals and pastries, salads, fish, cold meat and cheese, hot breakfast and lunch dishes, desserts and soft drinks. The service is minimal but we eventually flagged down a waitress to ask how were supposed to proceed. Some buffet items were replenished (the whole salmon) but others were not and we had to wait a while when the attendant at the crepe station took a break.
It is not cheap (48 CHF adults, 39 CHF seniors, 24 CHF 6-12 year olds, free for under 6 year olds) but we were not rushed along so you could probably spend half of Sunday there grazing.
The only complaint from our party was that there was no light option (such as fruit) amongst the desserts.

We ate here in a group of 10 people, had made a reservation but they had put it down on the wrong day so scrambled together three tables asking us: 1. to order only between two dishes in the whole menu and 2. to write down our order ourselves.
Staff was rude, inattentive, openly hostile for reasons we did not understand and, to top it all, the food overpriced. I will never go back, not even if this was the only restaurant in town.

Parc the Bastions is one of the finest public gardens in Geneva. There, surprisingly, you can find a very good restaurant, which is not just relying on a fine location and on the support of the local authorities who rent the place. Personel is quite efficient. Fine choice of local wines. Good food.

Very limited menu, but every dish asuccess story! I like to have a restaurant that serves few but excellent dishes. Better to concentrate on quality than quantity.
Wine list is also limited. We had on two occasions two good reds.

As you will notice on any beautiful summer days, this restaurant (kioske) which is perfectly located, in beautiful surroundings is rarely even remotely crowded. The mystery is quickly solved by trying to get the waiters attention (which is likely to fail unless you stick you leg out) - or if you get their attention, get some service. The service is appalling and the food uninteresting at best. All of Geneva is waiting for the day when the caterer is changed and this place can take the place amongst Geneva hang-outs it truly deserves.
