On my birthday I had a friend in town, and we spontaneously decided to have a celebration dinner at Hotel De France, just down the street from my apartment in Ferney. Only a 20 minute bus ride on the F bus back to downtown Geneva, this was convienient for her as well. The prix-fix menu is a good deal, at... More

We wanted to try a new restaurant. The environment was fine. The service was extremely slow. One couple left the place because they were told that if they were not happy they were free to go... Between the moment we sat down till actually getting our food took more than an hour. We enjoyed the food but when we mentioned... More

I’ve been going to this great restaurant for the past two years and just had to add the review now. I visited on the opening evening after they have just renovated the restaurant. What a good experience! (Once again). Good hosts, good service, great selection of wine and a very good menu to choose from. Really can recommend this restaurant!

The Hotel de France was built in the late 18th century as the home for one of Voltaire's secretaries (or Secretaries). It is a characterful and quirky hotel in the old centre of Ferney(-Voltaire), overlooking a fountain to the great writer, a café called Le Patriarche and the best bakery in town. The hotel is a good and modesty-priced alternative... More

My husband and I had a most delightful meal the first time that we revisited the restaurant again two nights later. Cecile and Bertrand are excellent hosts and Gotye setting is very pretty. The foie gras was the best I have ever had the pleasure to try and all other dishes were beautifully presented and very tasty.

The restaurant looks cosy and elegant. The hosts are formal but welcoming. The menus have virtually 5 dishes to choose from and I felt they were quite rigid with accommodating some changes. The dishes are beautifully presented but the taste does not match the expectation (pollack was rather bland). Main courses approx €32 Photos are of pollack and cod

We stayed here, close to Geneva airport, to give us a chance to overcome the jet lag before going to the mountains. What a wonderful surprise. It was close to the Geneva airport and is totally authentic France. The ambiance and the beds were super. Our hosts, Cecily, Bertrand and Serve were very friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced.
