This was a great and tasty experience! The foie gras was so good, and well presented! The vegetable with the peanuts sauce were good but maybe could be improved as we can't tell what kind of vegetables are inside the pastry.. but still really good. The entrecote was fabulous!!! Cooked perfectly, the sauce was delicious as the potatoes and the... More

Had heard of this place before but never had a chance to try until today - went to lunch with a friend during a busy day and it was a great idea! Don't be mislead by the modest undertone decor of the interior of this small establishment. It is a boutique experience where most emphasis is on food. Menu is... More

I've eaten here occasionally for lunch, and service has always been on the slow end. There is one lady that manages the restaurant and the bar alone. However the food is decent so I kept coming back. On this last visit, we waited for 30 minutes without even given the opportunity to order a drink. The waitress passed by and... More

This place is astonisihing - even though it is Michelin Star rated, it managed to stay "normal" and makes you feel welcome and down-to-earth. Service is extremly attentive - we had a reservation for a family dinner with a child: when we arrived at athe restaurant there were some toys on the table and the chef cooked a child-firendly meal...

We used to really like this place. Food was excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, the service attentive (although not very professional) and the prices reasonable. However, our two last visits were spoilt by the huge amount of salt the cook used in all the dishes that we ordered, bar the dessert. It was really disappointing. The first time it happened, we...

Me and my wife recently visited the 2 star Joel Robuchon restaurant at the Metropole Hotel in Monte Carlo so it was easy to judge the standard of food here. The pre starter was delicious. The tempura vegetables in a gazpacho was also excellent and very well presented. As mains we had king prawns in a light madras sauce, and... More

We walk in with a reservation to a muted welcome from a waitress in a tracksuit. The restaurant is not full the whole time we are there, making us think perhaps a reservation was not required after all. The appetiser is extremely salty and heavy handed with sesame oil. The foie gras is the best experience of the night. The... More

Food in this location is really good. They have a full menu for 68 CHF which is really great with not much choice but all is good. Unfortunately the location and the decoration is average.....

The meal we ate here was outstanding - fantastic flavours and presentation. Rather out of the way in a little side street, but worth searching out - some of the best food we've had in ages. A quiet atmosphere when we went, but this place should be packed to the rafters with the quality of this cooking. Highly recommended.

This small restaurant is likely to be a very welcome find for anyone looking for good food, friendly service, and fair prices near Geneva's Gare de Cornavin train station. The French menu is quite interesting, to the point that it was difficult to decide among several very tempting possibilities. The food is quite fresh and very skillfully prepared, certainly an...
