Nicely located in the old town. Food is good and well presented, but overpriced. Service is also quite good. Restaurant has kept an historical atmosphere.

The food was delicious, fantastic ambience and the service was exceptional (inclusive of the waiter being the dessert menu but not the dessert...!). The wine recommended to us was delectable and went very well with the beef dish (with marrow bone & red wine jus)....More

We had a very enjoyable lunch in the heart of Geneva's old town. The food was very good and creative. The service was fine and the terrace is big and friendly. A lovely view on the Old town of Geneva.

A nice warm restaurant with good service and reasonable menu. Intimately decorated like old times and it has its ambiance for a nice Saturday lunch with few choices from the menu..I prefer this over variety of choices and least complicated to order the best.
