Someone called this "Baroque". It isn't at all. It is 1930's ish...and quite dated. It has a wonderful view, and terrace overlooking lac Làman (Lake Geneva in English). The terrace is shaded by vines and is very lovely. The food is OK. I wouldn't say more than that. they have a good selection of "menus" and we ate there in August and chose the 38€ menu, which had an "amuse bouche" and a starter - in this case foie gras and was very nice, served with warm toasts. Main was filets de perche which we adore. Althoguh these were definitely from the lake and not from Poland (Polish ones are much bigger) they were not particularly well cooked. Frites were limp, and as they are billed as "frites maison" - which they undoubtedly are - this is inexcusable. Cheese selection was fantastic. Dessert selection too. Would I go back there (and I live less than 1 hour away) - no.
Service was good considering it was Assomption. But the main course was just not up to par.
