Been there a couple of times, nice veranda, the food is very good, the service is friendly. It's open on Sundays. The surroundings are wonderful for a walk in the large park with views on the lake.

We went there on the occasion of the exhibition of the Rembrandt etchings in the chateau in the same grounds. The setting is in a beautiful park opposite the American permanent mission and next door to the Palais des Nations. We sat inthe new serre which was constructed a few years ago. Our meal was selle de chevreuil. It was... More

From unstable weather to a sudden change, we were a group of 6 colleagues coming for a quick lunch. None of the tables were set outside, as it had been cold and grey all morning, but when we arrived, the sun sprung out, we wondered if it were possible to eat outside…. A few minutes later, Thierry arrived with a... More

Was invited for business cocktail dinner, a great tent, very well designed was over the terrace. The ambiance was great during a summer evening. The food was very tasty and from the "terroir" most of the ingredients were from Geneva and Switzerland. Small display of trout tartare, or smoked bacon wrapped on a dried plum, fried cheese, and plenty of... More

I've lived 33 years in Geneva, and used to come to this place when it was Le Cent Suisses. It was pleasant, and one ate well for a correct sum. Now they have created the restaurant out back, slapped on a few fancy certifications and nice lamps, and before you know it, you are paying through the nose for nothing.... More

Attended a conference as one of the Swiss artists uk , for the celebrations of the Swiss societies and clubs global. The restaurant is extremely good , serving breakfast lunch and drinks throughout the conference talks lectures and exhibition tour guides etc with the Rembrandt. Extremely nice food and wines presented for all the delegates attending the conference.

I liked the location of this restaurant near the Museum of Swiss abroad and located at the entrance of Domaine de Penthes-a majestic park. However, I was less impressed by the food, which did not match its pretentions. The service requires improvement.

Nice decor, proximity to the United Nations area are the pluses. The food is at best mediocre and the prices are in the high-mid range. I have never liked the food here.

I believe this place is known for having a lot of business lunches, particularly from nearby international organisations. Business lunch menu on offer is nicely balanced with fish and meat options. Location is in a nice nature setting and I can imagine it being stunning in blooming spring or lush summer. Service is professional but rather curt, borderline brusque. They... More
