Description: In the dining room of the Chateau de Divonne, you will enjoy the special atmosphere of a beautiful family home converted into a restaurant. Authentic floors, fresco by Jean Debaub representing the banks dreamed of Lake Divonne in the romantic style, family portraits, soft colors combine to create a rare setting near Geneva. The dining room "Duchess Vendôme" is located on the ground floor, windows provide light and stunning views of the mountains. From the first lovely days, the terrace facing Mont Blanc chain is very appreciated for lunch and dinner.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Dined at the Chateau on a Thursday evening, certainly not fully booked but enough tables occupied to give a bit of an atmosphere. The Chateau has a certain old world charm about it, but the place feels like it could do with freshening up.
The food was well executed but lacked flavour and the quality of the meat (beef and lamb) was not up to standard. The food in general felt a bit tired no freshness/life to any of the dishes we tried. The price is out of proportion to the quality served, and the wines were far too expensive with little choice. Unfortunately was not at all impressed and can’t recommend the restaurant.

“Good location and setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

..but pricey.

Stayed at the hotel three years back for a family event.

This time just dined at the restaurant as was passing through on a visit to Geneva.

Nice view from the balcony and a good place for a pre dinner drink.

“Brunch on Sunday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Even though the setting is pretty, the brunch could be much better...

The waiters didn't allow guests to go into the restaurant until 12.00 o'clock sharp! Even at 11.58 they asked clients to stay outside the dining room.
The buffet offers mostly a selection of seafood such as smoked salmon, shrimps and oysters.

Cheese lovers will be happy...the selection is good.

Dessert is a problem, since all the "good stuff" is not being replaced, once finished! That's actually the problem with all things on the buffet.

Service is slow and the head waiter needs to improve his people skills!

I wouldn't go back for brunch - the feeling is too much of a cafeteria.

“Food Chateau”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

If you want a truly magnicient setting then this is the place. It has very traditional service standards - silver service and starched white table linen. The chateau has creaky ancient parquet floors and the rooms are tall and panelled. The location is exquisite and the food very good. It is a great location to have a set menu for a larger group for which the price can be vastly reduced over the standard menu prices.
