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

The Auberge has a Michelin star and it's well deserved. The little bistro next door has the same quality level, but serves more simple dishes. The atmosphere is chique but relaxed. Great views over Lac Leman (if you have the right table) while enjoying food...More

Surprised about how poor the food was!! Ordered fish for two with table service. The fish was under-cooked and the servers had to take it back to the kitchen along with our mashed potatoes. Rather than preparing a new fish, the kitchen simply reheated the...More

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.

This is the perfect classic restaurant - same high quality of food and service for years. Our third visit, and the set menu was just as beautiful while we enjoyed views of Lake Geneva below. Service is faultless, kind of what you would expect in...More

I was lucky enough to enjoy a magnificent dinner at this restaurant last month whilst on a short trip to Geneva. The setting is magnificent, overlooking the lake and the service was fantastic. We had the set menu, which offered a beautiful variety of their...More

A return to a favored restaurant from years gone by with three guests was disappointing in many ways - facility was drab (no charm), table settings ordinary, service rough with food brought to wrong person, spills that were ignored and generally unimpressive. Food was good...More
