Visited for the first time, a business lunch. Good service, top notch food, nice atmosphere. I save my 5 ratings for the truly exceptional, my 4 rating says I would be back there like a shot next time I am in Geneva. Recommended, I doubt you will be disappointed

After two weeks of travel, we selected this small restaurant in a rather out of the street. It was just what we wanted... quiet and comfy. Menu is quite extensive... one of us had quail; the other lobster. Both were delicious. Service was superb and Jacky even visited personally each table at the end of the evening. While on the...

This is one very pleasant place. Excellent products that are not oversold, simple mixture of flavors, very solid basics and a few twists in the seasoning that make you happy. Not the level of starred tables but simpler with extremely good dishes for a special occasion. Service is efficient, professional but friendly, location is urban but central and quiet, and... More

Its not in the Old Town. Or by the lake. But once you find this gem of a restaurant, you are yearning to go back. Impeccable service and tasty meals...I had the mushroom appetizer with the Poulet main course with the risotto. The Fromage tray and desserts capped off the terrific dining experience. It is expensive but you are in... More

Just ran in from the rain on a one night stay in Geneva. not a very promising area but a real find. Just a few courses on the menus but really special. Skipped the starter but the kind & attentive waiter gave me a little amuse-bouche. The fillet of beef with unusual kale chips was lovely & ratatouille contrasted nicely.... More

I’ve known chez Jacky for years. I never thought much about it, but as I got older, and the restaurant didn’t, it started to get character and today could well be described as pleasingly old-fashioned. It’s a bit like time-travel: the decor is 1950’s or 1960’s, bourgeois. As is the clientèle. The tables are nicely laid, and the waiters are... More

Chez Jacky doesn't look like much from the outside, or the inside. But that's only a deception. It seems like a common place where locals go for lunch. Being there already 3-4 times most of them seem regulars. And I'm not surprised. The food is simply the best I ever had in Geneva, a true feast for your tongue. Chez... More
