Description: Shamwari is primarly the name of one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Africa. This contemporary design restaurant (capacity of 80 seats) is separated from the main building. It offers a change of scenery, including the exotic and captivating beauty reminiscent of South Africa. The dark tones which reflect the light on exotic wood give a foretaste of sensual delight. Our Chef Vincent Betton wants to highlight the taste and product, with a special attention to the seasons, terroir and fish he’d rather cook.

Our 3-day stay at Jiva Hill Resort included a 4-course meal every night at "Le Shamwari". Delicious food with imagination perfect service

A gorgeous place to keep in mind - "Découverte et Saveurs" can highly be recommended

We were there in a conference where the meal was pre ordered. Having done that also the service was very slow. The staff seemed to be forgetful, where we asked for anything out of the normal and they either forgot or got it after a long time or after having to remind them. Me and a few of my colleagues are vegetarians and when we asked for what was served, they did not know and did not come back. The food however was good. One goof up which I found unacceptable is that they served me Non veg food in one course and I had a doubt and had to clarify and realised that it was indeed non veg that they erroneously served..

Jiva Hill has sprung out of nowhere - it seems - and offers a slice of luxury in the little part of France neighbouring Geneva/Switzerland. In addition to having golf, horse riding, beauty salon with excellent massage therapies, and luxury hotel facilities, the restaurant is top notch, and a real treat for special occasions. Food is succulent, beautifully presented, and varied. The menu and wine come at a price so it's a place for special treats. On a lovely day, there are beautiful views to be had from the terrasse towards the Mont Blanc and Jura hills. A joy.

Would you like to escape your daily life in Geneva for a moment? This is the very best place to go for a lunch or dinner. The relaxing countryside atmosphere (with a beautiful view) is mixed with a personalised, proactive and discreet service. The food is delicious and presented in a beautiful and creative way on the plate. A great selection of wines and prices are reasonable for this level of cuisine. Enjoy !
