The food needs to be a little tastier and a little less fancy. Wine is on the expensive side. Always regularly full/frequented though so a popular restaurant. Nice location by Divonne lake to go for a walk after dessert!

In a town where good food options are hard to find the Rectiligne stands out. We went for the middle-menu at just over Euros 75.- The food was excellent,original and modern without going overboard. The desert was an extraordinary warm pear filled with roquefort.A must. Staff are efficient,location is on the lake,seating is private. I just found the wine a... More

So.... where to start? Well, the taste is just not there. There is nothing fantastic about the food. It's just dull!! We had lentils that were not cooked. The dessert was way too sweet and really didn't have anything exciting about it. Even writing the review about the restaurant is boring since everything about the food was lame. The service... More

Superbely elegant food often presented like little works of art! We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed! Lovely staff and in summer a pretty terrace overlooking the lake!

fantastic food, beautiful presentation, smooth service. The weekday lunch set menu is very reasonable (about 35€, exc. wine), dinner would have been quite expensive though (about 60€ for similar set menu). Great for a special occasion

Great meal (taste, presentation, quality of ingredients), almost "Michelin star" level. Value for money seems fair (menu Grand Large). The service level though is variable and not perfectly coordinated, some room for improvement here (bread replenishment, dish description not always clear, etc.). I will certainly return to this restaurant for the next occasion.

Beautiful contemporary place at the lake. The food is delicious from the starter to the amazing desert. The presentation of the food is awesome. Very good service.

Good intention when it started with modern style, homeopathic doses. Creative enough, but how uncomfortable you feel if you don't play the local Yuppie new rich comedy. Go if you lake around...

Arrived on a Friday for lunch with my mother and 2 month old who was quietly napping in her carriage throughout the entire meal. The restaurant was semi full and it was a beautiful Autumn day so we accepted to sit outside on the terrace. At one point the wind picked up and it was gushing into my two month... More

I used the earlier recommendations as a factor in my selection. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly. We booked the terrace for a dinner. The five course was a good option. At evening it may get chilly, be ready for sweater or extra jacket.
