Me and my family stayed at a hotel nearby just for having quick access to an early morning flight, we just expected to find a pizza joint or similar in the evening. However, what we thought would be a boring airport hood evening by accident ended with a wonderful experience. Great service (we had no reservation but got a table anyway), excellent food (we had e.g. bouillabaisse, paella and grilled fish) and very reasonable prices (we are on the French side of Geneva).

We tried Le Pirate with my husband on a Thursday night. We found the food was of excellent quality. Service could have been better, it took a while before someone took our order although there were more staff then customers at first. All in all a good experience, and reasonnable price for the area

My husband and I have been going to Le Pirate for years. Imagine my astonishment when, just by curiosity, I looked at reviews on Trip Advisor to see their rating. Honestly, I don't know what fault anyone could find with this restaurant and if you are looking for fine dining in the Ferney-Voltaire/Geneva area this is hands down...the VERY best!!! This isn't pizza, or hamburgers, or anything like that, and it isn't priced that way. This is FINE dining in the French fashion with the focus on seafood. If you don't like seafood, then don't come here. If you're looking for cheap, don't come here. But if you do love fresh, wonderfully prepared seafood, then this is THE place for it. We have never, ever had a bad meal in this restaurant. The food is exquisitely prepared, the service friendly and professional, the atmosphere elegant. Come one Saturday evening, see all the packed tables around you, all the Geneva license plates in the parking lot, now why is that? Because...it's GOOD! The other restaurants shown for Ferney-Voltaire are not even in the same category. This is the restaurant that should be number one. Don't pay any attention to these other negative reviews, if you love good seafood and a fine dining experience, than go and see for yourself.

We travelled four and a half hours by train (and back) just to have the gourmet lunch at the "le pirate". Excellent food, nice staff and very good value for money.
