“3 G”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Good view, Good service, Good food !
The view is very relaxing, just fine to enjoy a good meal. The staff is very customer oriented and very efficient to give any details about the different courses of the menus and make suggestion about the wine to drink with the food. They have a sense of humor, which is not always the case in this type of restaurant. As far as the food is concerned, it is very south west of France oriented, and sometimes revisited for the best. Plenty of different tastes makes your mouth water and enjoy every part of it.

“Food Good, Service Not So Good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

I consider the service I receive to be as important as the food. On this occasion the service was not good enough. I ordered a drink at the bar but was kept waiting for at least five minutes until it was poured. Some important looking businessmen in suits were being given priority. Regular customers or the promise of a big tip perhaps? I don’t know but I certainly felt as if I was low(er) priority. The waitress actually seemed to have forgotten I had placed my order with her.
I was not offered a table in the main restaurant (to be fair, I could not see if any were free). I ended up with a table in the bar area together with the other lone diners. No view of the lake for me.
The food arrived promptly. It was good enough but for the prices they were charging it should be. Portions were fairly generous. The Salade Verte was uninspired. The Cassoulet I had for main course was thoroughly enjoyable but for CHF39 they could have thrown in some vegetables. Fromage to finish – nice enough selection and enough of it.
Perhaps my review is somewhat harsh but my first impressions were poor. My money is as good as anyone else’s – allowing a customer to see others receive preferential treatment is completely unacceptable.

“Superb View- food is good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Have been at least a half dozen times in the last year and generally the dishes are tasty. The menu is handwritten on a board and rolled around from table to table- and the waiter walks you throw the options- a nice touch. Booking is recommended and the service is generally very good. Some dishes are OK whilst others are good- but I've never had my socks knocked off so my overall review is only 'average'.

“Lovely terrace, good food, adequate bill...a perfect sunday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2011

First of all, we arrived at the beautiful and small village of Bursinel andwe found a space to park in the public space: a covered, clean, modern parking in a village of 500 meters extension!! Great.
The restaurnt proposes a beautiful terrace yith view on the lake that pays already 50% of the trip from Geneva. The other 50% is more than well covered by the food.
Service is friendly and dishes are really well presented, in the right portionsm leaving the space for a dessert at the end.
A pleasant discovery. We will return for sure.
...and what a park space!! All respect to the municipality...
