“Good quality eating but not dining experience”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

The Lac has a very good local reputation. We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch, which was efficiently but emotionlessly served.

For entre, the Pot de Fera (off cuts of the fish otherwise served as a main dish) is well recommended. The Saint Jacques based sauce cum terrine is tastely and light.
I particularly enjoyed the Cochon Iberico for a main dish and my partner’s dorade was moist and tasty.
A bottle of Satigny Chardonnay completed a celebration lunch.

A relatively expensive meal, but worth the cost although a bit more engagement during the service would have made it a great choice. Why do restaurant fail to appreciate that we come for the dining experience and not just the fancy food?

“One of the best in Geneva area”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

What to say: just excellent food, attentive waiters, charming owner. Try the "filet de perches" which are sensational. I have been several times already, with family, friends, business partners and clients, and I have never ever been disappointed. There's a terrace, view onto Lake Geneva. Only small disadvantage: you mioght hear airplanes approaching Geneva, but the food should make you forget the noise.

“Perfect food and very friendly service!”
Reviewed 3 May 2013 via mobile

Were there with husband and (ado-)children. We all have had a great night with wonderful food (and excellent wine!) What pleased and surprised us even more was the accurate, friendly and immaculate service!!! Highly exceptional for la Suisse Romandie! Nice atmosphere! Price/quality very good! Definitely come back often! Looking forward to discover other meals on the menu!

A beautiful lunch on the sunny terrace by the lake. The filets de perche was excellent; to be recommended as the local delicacy. Service is warmly courteous and caring.
