This restaurant was within walking distance of our apartment, and we went there twice. It has a white-tablecloth side and a casual side. The casual side had daily specials, which were well prepared and very reasonably priced.

I used to go to this place quite often some 30 years ago, but haven't been back as it is no longer on my beaten track. Today was the 1st time back there for a lunch with a friend. The food was very good. The beef burgers served to a nearby table looked absolutely fantastic. Staff were friendly but lack... More

This is an overlooked establishment right in the heart of Champel, not far from the Claparède TPG stop. It is quite expensive but offers beautiful meat sourced from the Boucherie du Molard located in the rue du marché and an institution in this town. The service is from a bygone era and you can feel the push to make you... More

Went here on a Saturday night. The steak was top notch as was the service. Got a chance to brush up on my French. Staff where very friendly. It wasn't cheap but the food was top quality.

The new owners have refreshed the place. The staff ( many who have worked here for 20 years) are rejuvenated and the steaks and burgers are much better. Nice place, good meat and tasty deserts. A nice evening out!

Went here based on a recommendation of the hotel owner in Geneva and was definitely not disappointed. The restaurant is pretty big with several areas which does not make it look big. It has an open kitchen close to the entrance so you straight away get a good impression of a clean kitchen. The menu looks nice and interesting however... More

The food was good, the service fine and the place comfortable ..... but even if none of these things were true the fact that this is about the only restaurant in the neighbourhood which serves food on Sundays makes it a must!

The place was a classic in the Champel / Parc Bertrand area. However it went downhill in the past few months - too expensive and food ranging from serviceable to not very good (based on quite a few visits). I'm disappointed. What happened?

We used to come here often, with colleagues and friends. Apparently, the owner has changed, and the chiefs were changed. The change is dreadfull, all nice things we liked, such as baked potatoes with sour cream were remplaced by tiny potato with just a hint of cream, the meat was not of the quality it used to be, and we...

If you are familiar with English steakhouse (Goodman) or American (Peter Luger), do not go to this restaurant (expensive and old-fashioned)
