The chateau d'Ouchy has a beautiful view of the lake and great filets de perches. The fries are the best- thin and crunchy (I.e. not like the chunky oily American fries). Also, delicious chocolate dessert. If you're a veggie, get the risotto with black truffles- generous on the truffles and not overpowering- really amazing. Watch out for the price: it's... More

View from the terrace of the lake. But the waiter did not come for 20 minutes. Good, if you're willing to wait. Stale bread and dry.

Beautiful setting with great service and wonderful food, accompanied by very high prices, just what one would expect. The salmon for main course was excellent, creatively presented and a nice mixture of flavors. But it was the duck foie gras with black mushrooms that stood out. Elegantly presented with marvelous delicate flavors. I would go back just for that dish.

You cannot miss this beautiful building sitting on lake Geneva in the port of Ouchy. The red tiled roof is a real feature and adds to the waterfront skyline. Beautifully decorated for Christmas it is a lovely spot for a cup of coffee.

Lovely Hotel overlooking Lake Geneva with the Alps as the backdrop. Beautifully simple elegant rooms and the dining room is absolutely serene. They have a wide variety of choices for breakfast and a cozy lounge for quiet conversations. There are several choices for dining within walking distance and the metro is merely minutes away if you want to explore the... More

I regularly go for a drink there as it is a beautiful place in one of the best city location by the lake. The interior is glamour and service impeccable. They have meeting rooms and it is a serene place to meet romantically or organize business meetings.

Had poached egg in artichoke purée with truffle oil (really?!). Tiny tasteless portion with undercooked egg at the incredible price of CHF 28. One vegetarian dish: risotto. Not outstanding. Nice environment and service.

I had dinner here this evening. An all round amazing culinary experience! We were welcomed so heartily and warmly that I knew we would not be disappointed for choosing Chateau d'Ouchy as the establishment to have dinner in. The food was so scrumptious and the presentation was A+! I had the shrimp with turmeric as a starter and the chicken... More
