While the architecture is beautiful, the restaurant is below mediocre. The dishes were small and uninspired (and quite expensive), service was just ok, my table was given stale bread! I am not going back to this place.

We tried the place for a Sunday brunch. It is a large all you can eat buffet of salad, warm dishes and desert, nicely presented in a nice decor. You also have various bread, viennoiserie, juices and a crepe stand. The staff is friendly and the service quick. We enjoyed spending a nice Sunday afternoon among friend talking and trying... More

This restaurant has so much potential that is untapped. Great place, but what a shame. We arrived right after a show, and there was only few tables in the restaurant. The waiter greeted us, he smelled like a cigarette. Tried to make a joke toward my girlfriend that was unfit for a restaurant, she actually did not found it funny.... More

We were a large group that visited the restaurant. The service was slow. The food of poor quality. The beef for example was so leathery that all of us left the major part of it at the plate. The cheese was standard but OK, if no served directly from the refrigerator This restaurant is simply not worth the money. Avoid... More

Joined friends for lunch here on the patio under the trees. The wait staff were friendly and efficient, despite serving a bustling crowd on a hot summer's day. The food lived up to the promise of the menu and was very fresh - I can only recommend the 'coeur de thon mi-cuit' on a bed of avocado and other veg.... More

Nice, comfortable environment. Friendly wait staff and pretty delicious food with a lovely presentation. The structure of the building itself is quite interesting and made for a lovely evening.

I literally stumbled upon the cafe having been drawn into the park as I heard piano music and saw people inside playing chess, people settled in meditative silence and also people working on their computers; in other words an eclectic mix of students, women and children, lunch groups, social gatherings of men young and old and solitary diners... The cafe... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time and it was for a Sunday brunch. In this beautiful part of Geneva, across from the Grand Theatre on one side and on the other, the walls of the old town of Geneva, within the gates of the Bastion park. We reserved, as this place fills up really quickly. The welcome is... More

First to notice as you approach this restaurant are the huge chess and checker sets that you will notice when you pass by, very inviting and fun. Beyond the game area is the entrance to this beautiful building, with a large and lovely atrium overlooking a small outside skating rink that is attached to the restaurant. They rent skates here...
