Tried this place for the first time but probably not the last. We had one of the best risottos with mushrooms that I had the chance to taste in the last few years and it was very generously served. Efficient service. Nice atmosphere and reasonable price. A special note for a very good bread, and slight minus fo a (not... More

Within minutes, the entire place was full - so a good idea to reserve. Food was very nice - many options, all freshly... More

This restaurant is right next to the Plainpalais park (where there is a large flea market on Saturdays). If you are looking for something local and genuine then this is the place to go. The restaurant is in a typical local French style and the staff is very friendly. The menu is not large but what they serve is very... More

I walk by in front frequently and this time I stopped for dinner with a friend. It is a classic Geneva style restaurant. Prices are Geneva-normal, but service much better, The food was good and the atmosphere relaxed. Will be back!

Choice of beer was excellent and wine... More

Little restaurant in a big street, hardly noticeable if you don't know it. Food is absolutely amazing ! I had the fish and it was soft and tasty ! Really simple but good. The staff are super nice and they can really offer quality advice on wine/food. I strongly recommend the place for anyone willing to eat good French cuisine... More
