I have been to the Auberge du Vieux Bois three times and each time it has been fantastic. The food is wonderful, portion sizes are great, and service is marvelous. Go and see for yourself!

Reliably good French food with a wide choice of salads, meat and fish. Service is friendly and the chalet decor is cosy. Good value for money in the Geneva region.

Les Vieux Bois is always busy and so one would expect that the food must be good. Well, it is! The décor is sort of country French with some odd high seated tables that actually work once you get used to them. And they are...More

I'm in Divonne on business and instead of heading in to town took TripAdvisor's advice and headed up the hill to the edge of Divonne. And I'm very glad I did. Welcoming and friendly, and just as well I'd arrived early as before long it...More
