Your röstis are the best, so why try and follow the burger trend?? We’ve been eating here for years and got tempted by your tenderloin burgers, but they don’t deserve to be on the menu! The pepper sauce is overwhelming, the steak is not cut...More

Seriously. Super delicious food. A little mandatory (but not really) French. Great space and ambience. Also - strong drinks. Could not ask for more.

Came here for lunch and had to try the rosti. We were not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious. Service was great, waitress was friendly. Although we found it was a bit pricey (but I guess average for Geneva restaurants).

We found this busy cafe while exploring the old town. It is a brasserie that offers traditional Swiss dishes like rösti (shredded potatoes, fried with or without toppings, sort of like superior American hash browns). The service was friendly and the al fresco seating made...More
