This is agood restaurant but even by Geneva standards it is pretty pricey. At the moment the construction work for the CEVA project means that it is closed (or even demolished?).

Buffet de la Gare des Eaux-Vives carries the burden of a fine reputation for quality, original cuisine; unfortunately it's a reputation it doesn't live up to. Our recent lunch there was pleasant but average in a way that failed to justify the price. My lamb...More
