“Nice staff, average pizza!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I wish I could give this a better review as the staff were really good, but they are unfortunately let down by the pizzas. Plus points: Great that they bring you carafes of water to the table, rather than pushing the bottled water/ well dressed and tasty green salads / good and generous portioned pasta dishes. Negatives: terrible pizza! All the pizzas that came to our table were burnt, making the edges inedible and them difficult to cut into. I understand that they were coming out of the pizza oven, but this us suppose to enhance the flavour, not nuke it! The four seasons was a mess - all the toppings mixed into a jumble of seafood, ham and whatever else was thrown on. Just bizarre. Apart from being burnt one of the children's pizzas came with Parmesan shavings liberally scattered on the top - like a pasta dish. Many children dislike Parmesan and this meant an unhappy little boy! I don't think we will go back which is a shame as the ambience and location was very pleasant .

“Good pizza & view”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I generally hate pizzas but I had a ham one @ the Quai 23 and actually really enjoyed it! A nice fine base, not too much cheese or tomato sauce which I personally like. It tends to get very busy though - it took us 1h to get our pizzas. You must reserve otherwise I doubt you will get a good table. The outside area is very nice, facing the lake and the fairy lights hanging from the tall trees. Friendly, young staff. The prices are very reasonable too!

“Favorite pizza place in town”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Really funky deco. Staff are friendly, but sometimes the food can be slow. It's a very popular place on weekends. Get the chef's special pizza, which is always different and always yummy. Also great coffee!

“excellent value for money and great location”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I'm from the Nyon region and this is definitely the best value for money you'll get around here, especially if you are traveling on a tight budget but still like food in a nice setting. It's nice italian and french inspired food (the pizza is great and comes straight from the wood fired oven) with seasonal and regional inspired daily suggestions like Tartare de Féra (féra is a type of fish found in Lake Geneva) in summer. People also go there just for drinks on Friday and Saturday night, so make sure to book a table or come early. If it's a nice warm summer evening and there's just two of you (in a romantic mood), try and grab one of the outside tables next to the big open front window looking onto Lake Geneva. The atmosphere and decoration are great too: it's a French style bistro furniture and a fun mix of all and new. Staff are nice ( I don't know about their level of English though) but can get a little stressed if it's a busy night.
