A small restaurant at an angle of an old village house, not always easy to spot but once you're inside, it's a unique culinary experience so well worth the detour. The dishes are fresh, tasty and original, the menu changes regularly and the chef really puts a lot of heart into it. The price range is varied but every single... More

Fine food restaurant. Everything is amazing and product mostly provide from the Geneva region. Lot of great wines and spirits available. Yes, it's a bit expensive but worth the money if you like the fine food.

The food is very well presented and filling. The terrace is a great place to eat in summer. The service and the selection of wines is excellent. Lots of free parking available. People are friendly and unobtrusive. On the downside, it is a bit pricey.

We were lucky enough to book the chef's table. We had amazing food, great service and, as usual, the warmest of welcomes. Really, if you are in Geneva for even a few days, enjoy fine food, love your friends and want a treat, please try and book a table. Yes by most people's standards it is a little expensive but...

What a great place to have lunch or dinner! The food is prepared with excellence and the Chef will surprise you with his fine cuisine. I really enjoyed every bite of food there and will come back for dinner in a week. I highly recommend.

We ate à la carte in this small friendly restaurant. The chef takes great pride in his dishes which are all tasty. Some presentations were not to my taste but the members of our party all enjoyed them. A number of dishes are slow-cooked making the food very tender. Reservations recommended.

A small family run restaurant with cosy ambience and good local food. Selection is rather small, but meals are excellent and taste home made. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff and fast service. The place has just a few tables and is popular among staff of international organizations and diplomatic missions, so make sure you make a reservation.

This charming French bistro features the delectable fresh local food of artisan cuisinier /owner David Tracol. I went to lunch with work associates and enjoyed a wonderful lunch special-- roasted duck with mashed potatoes and micro vegetables, feta cheese carpaccio and a cherry creme brûlée. Mr Tracol uses only fresh local ingredients, catches his own fish, and even bottles the... More
