Another delicious lunch with excellent service and good wine at the Hotel de ville .. in summer there is the added value of the terrace. Salad and sou as starters were great, and lamb main course succulent.

We needed an early dinner near the theatre and boy was this a surprise. I saw the Cardon gratin as a side dish and ordered the meal. The entire dish of local meats (trilogie genevoise) was delicious. Each with its own flavor topped off with...More
