Description: The Bar & Restaurant de la Plage du Reposoir is beautifully settled right on the beach of the Lake of Geneva only minutes away from the centre and all international organisations. From our terrace you have an exceptional view onto the water and the Mont Blanc massif, while you enjoy the specialities ranging from Filets de Perche, home-made pizzas, meat or filet of tuna sizzling on hot stone and delicious salads. The bar has a great choice of cocktails and snacks and very comfortable wicker-chairs to relax and start your evening with friends around an Apero in the sun!Local specialities and wines from the Geneva region as well as the locally brewed beer Velosophe.

Le Reposoir is on the lake just outside of the city in the direction of Lausanne. Compared to restaurants in the city centre, Le Reposoir is very reasonably priced ( but still ridiculously expensive by UK standards ! )

The house speciality is Perch, with about half a dozen different sauces or serving options. Several types of pizza are also on the menu. I had a steak which you cook on a hot stone, and as a gimmick a paper bib is supplied to put around your neck. The bib is marked to appear as if you are wearing a collar and wastecoat !

Only one member of staff seemed to be able to speak any English, but everyone was friendly.

One thing to note though, the restaurant does not take credit or pin cards, only cash is accepted

Perch and meat dishes perfectly done, with five choices on the perch sauces. Feel comfortable in shorts, right on the lake. Great terrace and atmosphere. Wonderful respite from overpriced geneva yet very close. Reservations in season smart unless you like a long cocktail hour. Eat outside.

Great setting, terrace on the lake (provided of course the weather is decent). I went with colleagues at lunch. We arrived at noon. The restaurant wasn't even 1/4 full and the waiter announced they had no more 'plats du jour'. So of course you were left with expensive à la carte selections - and they don't take credit cards! The salad I finally ordered was elaborate - and good - but unless you really want to admire the lake while you are eating, there are much better lunch spots in Geneva. The dessert menu sounded delicious, unfortunately the service was so slow, we didn't have time for dessert.
