I have been eating here whenever I am in or near Geneva since the mid 90's. I try to stay at the hotel but I have brought clients all the way from Geneva to dine here a few times. I am a very picky eater and eat only seafood and I always call ahead and let them know when I... More

Excellently situated this terrace restaurant is a great place to eat, way out of the hussle and bussle of a busy town. Food is excellent and will certainly return there next summer. The actual restaurant is authentic and also a lovely place to eat.

The food is ambivalent: the quality of the used products is very good, the cooking as it should be, but the dishes are almost tasteless. Vegetables and fish are prepared without salt, herbs or spices. Only the meat dishes had a kind of (dull) taste. Desserts also without any creativity with the worst icecream we had for years. All the... More

Dear Guest, We regret reading your disatisfaction.

We display salt and Pepper on the table for our guest who like saltier taste. The spices are proposed in a "condiment" aside to allow our... More

Inventive food, well presented. Unusually for France, spice was involved as opposed to only herbs. Good use of local ingredients like lake fish and quality meat, together with a good variety of vegetables, all cooked to perfection. Deserts are particularly good. If you arrive early, good luck with trying to locate a barman.
