Located in a quiet corner of Cologny this establishment has a commanding view of the lake. The restaurant features inside and outside seating and during summer the external seating can provide for some glorious views. We had a large party for lunch and most of...More

Very good restaurant, quite deserving one star. Service was very good and coordinated. Views over lake are very nice and it’s pity that we could not manage to have outdoor sitting because of cold weather. Vegetables presumably are grown next to restaurant in their own...More

We took our son here as a special treat for his birthday. Bitterly disappointed. The waiters were off-hand and service was very slow. The food was eye-wateringly expensive, which I don’t mind if I’m getting something special, but the meal was the same food you...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.
