Good food, pretty surroundings and attentive staff. Especially loved the sea bream tartar! The veal was also good but I would try something lighter next time because it feels a bit heavy in a heatwave like we have now.

I've had lunch on the terrace and dinner in the private dining room; both great experiences. The friendly catering students make excellent waiters and waitresses, and the food is not only delicious but each dish is a work of art.

Very good food. The quality of their service totally depends on the very person who serves for you. Generally speaking, they are good.

Good restaurant just next to the entrance to the Palais des nation across the Red Cross. A good menu. Good service. A bit snobbish as often used for official and diplomatic lunches and dinners.
