We arrived with a party of four, having a reservation. The service was swift and attentive. Lunch was served quickly and wow, what a lunch. Normally, one expects portions for a lunch menu to be smaller and the quality being ok. Not in this case. The duck carpaccio was fantastic and the fresh fish from the lake a feast. Highly... More

We were in the Geneva region for a visit with friends and took advantage of being here to visit an old favorite, which didn't disappoint. Yes, the prices are high (this is Switzerland). But the food is marvelous, really well prepared, beautifully presented, and the staff have excellent English. And the view is so beautiful, we'd pay just to sit... More

Over-priced for a family dinner. Good food, nice presentation, but average taste. Not worth the bill. 30 swiss francs for a kuds meal, this makes the beautiful view fairly expensive.

Sitting on the terrace of this village restaurant is magical as you have an unobstructed view over Lake Geneva. The food is good, a bit rich for my taste, service is friendly albeit a tad slow when they are busy which is most of the time! You must book a table as they are mostly full!

The set menu is sensibly priced, the service is friendly, the quality of the cooking is good and the surrounds are relaxing.

We came here for a family lunch and had a very disappointing experience as our meal was ruined by the service, which wasn't just bad but the waitress was aggressive and very defensive, raising her voice at us a couple of times and being reluctant to listen.

Each time I go, I am positively surprised by the new dishes (the menu changes with the seasons). It inclines toward the cuisine of southwestern France.
