Reviewed 7 August 2014

Geneva is a city of secrets that have to be found. I did not "find" this restaurant but it came highly recommended after I asked for a place with good food, a wonderful atmosphere and friendly service. it is located in a small street in the old town and is very small itself (maybe with 12 tables). But what came out of the kitchen was just grand by any standard...a perfectly cooked Filet of Boeuf with a wonderfully fresh salad. As a solo diner I was seated by a window so I could watch the street activity but what also captivated me was the grace by which all meals were served...as each one was presented as a perfected masterpiece!

Great food, great service, great wine and an overall a great experience. Went there with the family, e menu catered to all of us.
Very casual and very small so service is excellent.
Will definitely go back.

Wow! This small but exceptional French Cuisine restaurant is a real joy for the discerning palate! It is located at the bottom of the old quarter where it meets the bustling town centre.

The portions are just right and well balanced between the starters, the main and dessert courses. The food is so fresh and tasty. In addition, they have really high quality house wines through to the more expensive varieties.

When you are next in Geneva, please try this hidden gem! You will not be disappointed.

This delightfull resaurant is easily overlooked as you walk to/from the old quarter, but if you miss it then you would miss a gem. It is not cheap but the food, the atmosphere and the experience is not to be missed. The menu is not extensive but everything on it is absolutely first quality and the flavours blend together in very subtle ways. Portions are more than enough to allow you to appreciate and enjoy your meal. The staff are very attentive but not intrusive. A definite destnation for foodies

We had a part of 8 people - had red and white wines and the food was amazing. Presentation was on point and flavors amazing. Food in Switzerland is expensive. Ompared to the USA but this was well worth it. Everything is made to order and the attention to the platin detail was a plus.

Deserts are great and the candied almonds after your meal are the best.
