Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first Swiss restaurant fondue experience and it was fabulous. The member of staff who served us helped us to order and guided our choices to ensure the best experience. Obviously popular, we visited on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was full and it...seemed that everyone was there to enjoy the Swiss specialities of fondue or raclette.More

Nice friendly Swiss/European restaurant near Cournavin train station. Wiaters and service were friendly and efficient. Food was very good. First night we had house wine by the glass, 2 house salads, Cheese fondue and lamb chops . Total bill for 2 was $112. Second night...we had 3 glasses of wine, 2 salads, large plate of broiled gambas with fries, and grilled salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Bill for 2 was $104. Lamb chops and salmon were especially tasty. Gambas were in shell and required much effort to deshell.More

Despite the restaurant being full, we observed other customers leaving and promptly requested a table. Shockingly, the waiter accommodated later-arriving groups without reservations, assuming we, as Chinese patrons, couldn't comprehend Swiss German. On a heavy rainy day, as a couple with three young children, our...polite request for a seat was met with a disrespectful dismissal. The waiter replied “we aren’t a train station taking everyone”. The unwarranted rudeness left us feeling discriminated against in the supposedly welcoming city of Geneva. An immensely disheartening experience.More

Extremely rude; mentioned I was solo and asked for a table for 1 person and refused, despite the fact many tables were free and continued to be free every-time I walked past. No effort made to accommodate

Found this little gem and was not disappointed even when we were seated in a small nook next to the door. Friendly waiters who made an effort to humor my non French speaking companion. The chèvre fondue was to die for and the ham and...au gratin w gravy was spot-on. Very busy at lunch. Rez highly recommended.More

Very good food for a reasonable price. I ordered a pasta, a tiramisu and wine. My mother who sometimes is a picky eater loved her pasta as well.

We were very happy with this restaurant. Food was excellent and staff were friendly and extremely efficient. Large meals so we ended up with takeaway leftovers. Unfortunately this was our last night in Geneva so we can’t return but definitely recommend

The menu has a huge variety of different dishes, literally something for everybody, all tastes, diets, meal size. We both opted for Swiss specialties, fondue and roesti, and both were excellent. The wine selection was limited by the glass but I had an excellent Swiss...wine. No room for dessert! The restaurant was very busy at the time, with customers both inside and outside, but the service was excellent considering how many tables the waiter was handling.More

Maybe the food is good but we will never know as service was absolutely horrible. Our server was so rude, impatient and arrogant that we decided to leave before ordering the food and paid for the drinks only. No restaurant should tolerate such a behavior...from their employees!!!More
