Went there for dinner with friends. Booked through La Fourchette so we got a good deal. Food was really good and out of the ordinary. Service was super friendly (and funny). Only down side is the wine list. I know it's Geneva but only 4...More

The food here was great and we really enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant is well decorated and quaint, the service was excellent and there is outdoor seating. I also like that the restaurant is in a quiet neighbourhood, far away from the busy centre.

The waiters are very nice - good service. The quality is good and all is hand made (even desert). Rare to have fishes from Geneva Lake (filets de perche) - as usually other restaurants import from Estonia.

Small café close to the old city and the university. Very good french food, if you don’t have problems with cholesterol try the os à moelle, mouth watering!
