Good food and good background music. A cozy booth to sit and gossip with friends. Smiling service. I had a great dinner here and the prices were not excessive (for Geneva standards).

Excellent, warm service in an artistic and relaxed atmosphere. Very good cuisine: normally absolutely full for lunch time so make sure you book a table. Excellent salads and an exceptional apple pie dessert!!! To visit if you are in Geneva!
