Description
It takes talent to dream up a "quick gourmet break" meeting the constraints of short time-frames. For Le Bistro, the chef Armel Bedouet has concocted a gourmet moment based on respecting the generosity of artisan-style produce. Tasty and original interpretations of classic French brasserie dishes accompanied by Geneva and Swiss wines compose a delicious menu. Le Bistro is the natural destination for friendly meals and business lunches offering a wealth of reassuring culinary references.
