I arrived, solo hiker, in Geneva, planning to book a hotel once I arrived. Out of my control, all hotels were booked up for the night - (due to 2 international conventions). The wonderful staff here were so welcoming and made me feel so welcoming....More

Great atmosphere. Food really good and well presented. Excellent value for money. Fun and varied events. Can easily go alone and end up being welcomed by staff (Jesse and Leona) and clients alike. Already planned on what I'm eating next time!!

What do you say about a pub that has people asleep at the tables .... The strongbow served was definitely not strongbow !! Do yourself a favour and don’t waste your money in here, go elsewhere

Hi Jojo, Thank you for your comments. Sleep happens anywhere to the best of us: we do, of course, waken sleeping punters. You may not be aware, but Strongbow have actually changed their recipe in several countries, including Switzerland. Cheers

This bar was always busy due to its location. The prices are expensive but that's really like that everywhere here so it's probably not a place you'd get drunk in. Not bad though and was busy with both locals and tourists.More
