A very pleasant dinner. The ambiance was good and the food delicious. The service was very helpful and efficient. The menu and daily specials were interesting, not just stock items. I would go againl

“Loved their famous veal burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Their famous veal burger was excellent. Fresh ingredients and good quality meat. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. She recommended a local wine with the burger and it was delicious. It's not cheap but I would definitely go there again.

“Used to be good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We have visited the restaurant since its opening as the idea of reasonable and good quality open wines is always a selelr in Geneva. THis year, however, ....I do not recommend it anymore, the open wine quality has goen undrinkable and the meny...ther is nothing to chose from anymore, and when one finally decides amonth the lesser bad...it is just not good enough , for the price or otherwise. Bad news for us who love the location and the convenience, but no...definitely not worth the money and not recommended

Hello, we are very surprise by your last review about our restaurant ! we are open now for more than 3 years and we can see everyday that our customers are giving toward us more trusting and frequency. Our quality are growing because we are still using fresh foods from nice producers...
Our selection of wine is absolutely not "UNDRINKABLE" like you wrote...but i prefer to read from you that YOU DON'T LIKE !....we had nice Bordeaux by glass too ! that should be better that a first price range !! it's always question of color !!!...your review is not objective...i invite you to have a look on the kitchen and to make a degustation of wines with our sommelier...you will discover more knowledges....and it's very surprising to have this behaviour like you wrote to never come back after one disapointement ...after your long fidelity to us like you wrote ?!!

“Good & quiet place downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

It's not easy to find a good restaurant at Geneva downtown that is not crowded or very expensive. This is an interesting place with good local food in a hidden alley just by the lake in the city center. Prices are also aceptable for the level of Geneva.
