I absolutely loved the place! The waiters were super-nice and helpful, amazing service! The food was delicious, from starters to desert. The grilled octopus tentacle and the curried codfish with mango chutney were to die for! Everything beautifully cooked and presented, and a very reasonable price (for Geneva). L'Escapade is on my top 3 "where to eat" list in Geneva!

Welcomed and served by Jérôme, a model of efficiency and customer skills, ordered an octopus and scallop risotto which was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended if you are in the vicinity as it is a little way out from hypercentre of Geneva

a bit out of main Geneva, this is a typical local restaurant, very well liked by my colleagues, for me it was a bit similar to the rest, but nice good food.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Fantastic food and wine and great service. Also plenty of space between tables which is a rarity in Geneva.

Horrible risotto, acceptable tartare in an anonymous setting with high prices. There are many better places in town.

The escapade is part of a family run business. 4 brothers each with a restaurant. The food is exquisite! Must try their risotto with truffle and creamy buratta! The service is professional and the waiters can talk to you in great detail about their products. Very nice wine list. In summer they have a large terrace that is hidden from... More

A few stops on the bus from central Geneva's sky-high prices, we enjoyed a memorable meal at this friendly, genuine restaurant. I kicked off with the octopus; it was a single 6" tentacle, slightly crisp on the outside and really tender. My standard choice in all proper Italian restaurants that have it on the menu is Osso Buco, so it... More
