“Only worth for their chocolate fondant”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Over the years I felt the quality of the food declined and the waiters tend to be very rude. Having said that, it is worth going there to try their chocolate fondant which must have been sent from Heaven itself!

“Very, very nice”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

The Mortimer is in a lovely situation in the Old town, near the Lutheran church. It is a fabulous place to pop into for a coffee, especially on a summer afternoon on the terrace. The food is excellent, the service is efficient. However, if you want to get in there on a lunchtime, you might have to book or get there early. On Thursdays and Fridays it seems to be the Hub of Geneva businessmen (girls .... if you're looking for a banker, lawyer or politician ....) as well as the many tourists who walk up into the old town.

“Great location, ambiance, and food!”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

After inspecting a few menus in the old town, my wife and I chose to eat at Mortimer, and we were not disappointed in the least. The ambiance was French bistro style, and very pleasant. My entree came with a mesclun salad, which was very good, simple, but very tasty. I chose steak for my entree, which came with allumettes-style fries (thin fries) and my wife originally chose a dish prepared with a local fish from Lac Leman, but was told the dish was sold out, so she chose the Daurade. The quality and service were excellent. The server was an older gentleman, who was quite joyous, perhaps one of the owners, and he attended to our every need.
Overall, with the candle light, the great setting and ambiance, the pleasant service and great food, it was a very enjoyable meal, very romantic, and I would certainly eat there again! Enjoy!

“easy and always on the go”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

in the old town, either for a cup of coffee or drinks, or for a delicious dinner, one could always stop in here. Lunch time is packed by lawyers!
