I agree with the last review - this is an absolutely fabulous restaurant with a view to die for. Service was attentive and warm, but not overly intrusive. Food beautifully prepared and presented. But a simple pasta dish, dessert and soft drink is over 50...More

This is a beautiful restaurant. Ask for a table on the terrace for the best views. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. This is only a 10 minute walk from our apartment and was a great find. Can definitely recommend.

Had hoped that a simple and quick lunch would be enjoyable... Sadly had to look for the waitress for quite sometimes, waited for longer than needed for beverage and food service and bill too... Can do much better, based if anything on prices paid.

An innovative all-day restaurant with stunning views of the Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc. It is a kind of a Mediterranean Brasserie with tasteful dishes. It offers also a Sunday's brunch that was really excellent. Reasonable prices and an efficient staff.
