We first had dinner here some 30 years or so ago and have been returning ever since. It’s a pleasure to see that standards have, if anything, been elevated and we believe that one Michelin star will soon become 2 if not 3! The food...More

On the recommendation of our hotel we went to this wonderful establishment. We were not disappointed. We did the tasting menu and it was wonderful. And the all you can eat dessert cart was over the top. Chocolate lovers beware...in a good way.

As usual, I was delighted to eat in this nice restaurant. I took the Ravioles and Coquilles St. Jacques (scallops) both excellent. My friend ordered a bottle of white wine- Dezaley-Chemin de fer; and I could not resist the Baba au rhum for dessert.

We took a private party upstairs with some great views over the lake. Quality wines and superb menu. The lamb was very memorable. Top service.

It is very nice to confirm the reputation of a restaurant with Michelin distinction. All selected courses were of unique value. Soles meunières & turbot are strongly recommended.

Went for dinner with my wife while being a tourist in Geneva. Place was recommended by our hotel, it's a little out of the way by taxi from downtown, but, definitely worth it. At first we did think that the staff came across a bit...More
