I wouldn't have expected such a nice restaurant in this industrial area. Built in an old workshop it has its own character. I liked my burger and there are a lot of tartar variations on the cards. Some live music played, fortunately not too loud.

L'Atelier is located in the industrial area of Les Acacias/Carouge. They have a lunch option including a main dish and salad for 18 CHF. I had the sechhan beef, my friend the burger. The food is good and you will find French dishes, Pizza and also Asian dishes on the menu. A bit of everything.

What a disappointment... Eeverything looked so great on the menu but in the end it was barely average. My wife and I got the "Gourmandise menu"; the foie gras was the worst I've eaten in a restaurant, the beef that was supposed to come with a morilles sauce turned out to have ONE morille in it and it wasn't even...

I was there with good friends and we had a excellent dinner. All meals were very tasty and the ambiance of the place was very comfortable. The surrounding maniifactory/industrial aera is not really inviting to go on the evening but I would definitey recommend the place. Avoid going there when there is a ice hockey match going on in Geneva,... More

Went on a Groupon voucher. The food was excellent, especially my starter dish of chanterelles. Many so called "fine" restaurants in Geneva do not clean them properly and you end up eating sand as well. Their food is refined with an excellent choice of different herbs. First time I tried the typical English "green sauce" with its spices and its... More

Off we went the four of us, with a Buyclub coupon to Acacias. The place was full and chatting happily, but then the group started playing, Flamenco music, and we had to scream to get ourselves heard. (live music every Thursday) The starters were OK, the Simmental steak excellent. But even with the coupon we spent 60 Chf p.p. (starter,... More

We will not return here. The space is beautiful: but a pity that they did not spend money or thoughts on how to use this amazing space. My hands are itchy to redecorate. Staff is reasonable, a bit slow, but ok. The restaurant is located in the industrial area of acacias, though i have come there often to my garage... More

If you don't mind the decor (a mix of Buddhist, Greek and modern decorative elements fighting for attention) or the location (situated in Acacias, between several office buildings), and simply want to taste excellent tartare, I totally recommend it! There's a full menu of tartare options, with the best one in my opinion being the Italian one (dried tomatoes, basil,... More
