Food was good to very good. There's plenty of space between tables and the service is good. Formal enough to feel like a proper restaurant, but still friendly enough and not stuffy. Good advice on wines. Note that there's no view on the lake from the restaurant (only a 2 min walk away though). After your meal, would recommend a... More

Our menus (foie gras, various fishes, cheese, desserts) have been well arranged and delicious. The atmosphere in this old house is very warm and with only two handful of tables you feel extremely comfortable.

All along lake Geneva's shore you find the usual places, all the same, all with "filets de perche" tourist traps. If you're looking for somewhere with proper haute cuisine.. Try the clos du lac. 50 meters away from the lake, elegant but friendly, great selection of wines. If you're in the region, and don't want the usual stuff, I recommend... More

We have thoroughly enjoyed the excellent cuisine, good value and attentive but discrete service offered by Le Clos du Lac ever since it opened a several years ago. The only problem is getting a table on the weekends as this restaurant is very popular with the locals which always a good sign. It offers a welcome alternative to Perch/Frites/Salad menu... More

The restaurant is pleasant inside; not many tables in a light and airy dining room. Service was friendly and the presentation of the food was very good. The menu is quite short - a selection of meat and fish dishes and no good if you are a vegetarian. The food was good (not exceptional) although I did really like the... More

The Restaurant is in a country setting a stones throw away from Lake Geneva on the other side of the road. Good friendly service and cooking is served in a spacious dining room decorated in relaxing beige colour tones. 3 newly built basic comfort rooms are available for overnight stays at bargain prices compared to expensive 20 kms distant Geneva.
