We called in without a reservation and were really well looked after by the owner/manager. He gave us a lovely seat and explained the menu for us non-French speakers. We ordered the lamb shank and the chicken “with friends” and they were absolutely delicious dishes....More

Fantastic selection of beers with knowledgable staff about what was good with recommendations. They have some good local beer too! Not particularly cheap but not bad value. Bar man very friendly, good atmosphere and good for groups which is rare in Geneva.

I was introduced to this establishment by a friend and regular client. We only did a wine-tasting, but the selection is clearly extensive. The service is very friendly, and the menu looks mouth-watering, all in a French brasserie setting. I look forward to coming again.

this is one of our mostly preferred French cuisine. Has its own cave that you can select personally your own wine from the cellar. And the food is good, especially tartare de bouef if you like raw meat. Otherwise, others are also good. Nothing good...More

A great little wine bar with typical brasserie food and some revisited classics. An excellent wine selection from classic Swiss and European vineyards as well as some delightful new discoveries from smaller bio properties. The Foie Gras is to die for as is the Cote...More
