A very pleasant dinner. The ambiance was good and the food delicious. The service was very helpful and efficient. The menu and daily specials were interesting, not just stock items. I would go againl

Their famous veal burger was excellent. Fresh ingredients and good quality meat. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. She recommended a local wine with the burger and it was delicious. It's not cheap but I would definitely go there again.

It’s a nice bistro located in a narrow street nearby the Mont Blanc Bridge. If a little bit pricey, still on par with the local high prices of Geneva. Not a large menu, but with nice options. Worth a try.
