The food at Patara was delicious and beautifully presented. They also gave some extra small treats as the meal went on.

Have been several times to this restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is divine and the location next to the lake of Geneva is a bonus, with parking nearby.

My husband had the tempura prawns which again were amazing. Main course my husband had the prawn and pineapple curry which was fantastic and came in half a pineapple!!... More

So here is the deal. If you don't care about money then you must try it not because it's good but because it's one of the best in town. The same food the same service will cost me in any US big city no more than 100 UD with tip. Give it a try if you want but for me... More

The palace is an iconic place in Geneva but the Thai restaurant is not at the same level unfortunately. Very very expensive prices (price of Thailand multiplied by five and more ...), small portions and basic standard Thai food with nothing exceptional. The service in Thai restaurant is usually nice and friendly with Thai smiles. For the price that is... More

The food is good (but not exceptional) and the restaurant is nicely decorated. However, with a bill of 170 euro for a two person-lunch (one starter and one main dish each plus one bottle of water), I found the value for money to be very poor.

My husband and I went there on a Sunday for lunch to celebrate my birthday. The positive first: The food was lovely, nice flavours and big portions. It's not really worth the price, but then nothing in Geneva is, so that's not really something I can fault. However, I have never been treated to disrespectfully by restaurant staff! I should...

I expected Patara to be exactly like its name: Fine Thai Cuisine. The food was mediocre, it was ridiculously overpriced, the portions were small and the service was average. I would have said that the location was good but after spending 25 minutes looking for parking, the overall experience was not a good one.

This chic Thai restaurant will not disappoint. The food and wine are superb as is the service. My favorite is the green curry shrimp with a glass of the Bordeaux but it is hard to go wrong with anything on the menu. If you like mangos then the mango sticky rice for dessert is not to be missed (this is... More

Since opening in 1999, Patara rapidly became a leading reference in Thai gastronomy and has long been one of the go-to addresses in international Geneva. This Mecca of culinary refinement is in reality the Geneva ambassador of one of the finest tables in Bangkok. It stands out for the authenticity and modernity of its cuisine, offering innovative combinations of spices, flavours and modes of preparation. The restaurant is located within the exceptional setting of the Hotel Beau-Rivage and boasts all the know-how, exclusive recipes and service philosophy of its Thai parent company. The chefs and kitchen team are sent to Geneva from Bangkok after being trained and having spent at least five years in the group's establishments. In a scrupulous concern for authenticity and freshness, ingredients are sent out twice a week from Bangkok, and are used in combination with the finest local produce. A comprehensive wine-list, selected especially for their harmonious combination with spicy dishes, rounds off a unique gastronomic experience on the banks of Lake Geneva, combining the best of East and West.
