Came here for lunch and had to try the rosti. We were not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious. Service was great, waitress was friendly. Although we found it was a bit pricey (but I guess average for Geneva restaurants).

Went with a group to this restaurant. Had the ham, egg and gruyere rösti. Loved it. Good service. We went on a very warm day and there was no ventilation which ruined the whole experience. I would recommend investing in some fans! Would go back...More
