It's well worth getting a bit out of Geneva to discover this really nice restaurant. The staff is very welcoming and they are very helpful to guide you through their menu. The Chef revisits hi menu very often and always uses the best exclusive ingidients. I've alway been happily surprised when going there. I definitely recommend their "Joue de Veau... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Geneva. The setting of the restaurant is quite simple but everything is in the plate. Excellent food and diligent and friendly service. Good wine recommendations. Highly recommended.

Loved the location of this restaurant. The food is expensive with small portions, but overall a must eat destination in Geneva.

Best restaurant in the area, and worth the trip to Plan-les-Ouates if you are in Geneva. Very sophisticated cuisine with French basis and exotic refreshing touches. Service is warm and precise. Good selection of local wines. Excellent quality / price relationship for Geneva. Just make sure you reserve in advance, more and more people know about this restaurant.

forget the expensive restaurants in the centre of Geneva. Just outside the city centre in plan les ouates is one of Geneva's best restaurants. Really nice place for a summer lunch on their terrace, or inside for a great diner. The chef is a magicien, prices very reasonable and staff friendly. Only b-mol is the art on the wall. Maybe...

Nicely located, fresh food, new menu every day. Pleasant selection of wine by the glass. In summer a nice terrace outside. Fast and efficient service. Never disapointed.
