We were a group of 13, a double room with breakfast cost each guest CHF 99.50 (if you ask for the simple b'fast version, it is CHF 6 less). The good one-plate lunch cost CHF 20.Room 5 has 3 beds and 2 windows, one of them on splendid Lake Geneva (30 m away). Guests are also served on the wide... More

I wish the food was up to the standards of the scenic view. The latter is worth seeing. Disappointing experience.

We were very happy with our meal here, even though it was a little on the expensive side. Great fresh ingredients, and I highly recommend the fish - so fresh! The servers were fast, friendly, and very accommodating. Plus the view was spectacular.

Great location, nice setting, warm welcome, but food is not at the standard of what is claimed on the menu. Low portion, vegetable water boil, strange sauces. We had to ask for bread , which was forgotten, because we were still hungry. Last but not least, they charge 5fr for a liter of tap water. Explantation why: Water is analyse.... More

We had just had lunch so we didnt order any food but the aroma from the kitchen tempted me a bit. We however decided to try the local wine which was excellent. The view from the restaurant is fantastic. Just to admire the geneva lake with a glass of local wine made the hour long trip from geneva worth it.

The setting is beautiful, the food is nothing special. Cully is a beautiful part of Switzerland and we've been here for the past 5 days and have enjoyed this area tremendously. However, sadly this is our least favourite restaurant. The service was very cold and very impersonal. I mentioned this to the manager who smiled, but didn't seem to care.... More

My wife, son and I visited Switzerland to visit my Mother in laws family. One of our excursions was to a Winery in Riex Switzerland. Denis Faquiex was a very gracious host as we toured his winery. We then traveled a short distance to Cully to have lunch at the Hotel Au Major Davel. Our Perch meal was to die... More

We had our lunch here yesterday with a group of people and enjoyed our meal is spite of the crowded restaurant. Our group counted 102 persons! The tables were for 6 guests and so we did not feel the squeeze, also there was a good space between the tables. The staff on duty was friendly, and efficient. Our meal started... More

This place is a classic, traditional and tasty. I you only had 2 hours at lunchtime to spend in this part of Switzerland, it would be an excellent choice. Do not overthink you choice while looking at the menu, pick the traditional "filets de perche", served with lightly buttered potatoes and vegetables. Enjoy the view: it has everything: the lake,...

we went there for a breakfast, we had the typical jam, butter, bread, orange juice, coffee and croissants. The breakfast was 12 CHF per person, which is ok... The people were nice, and the weather was good. The view is really relaxing from there. Go there and spend a couple of hours, you won't regret it...
