What a lovely evening. Impeccable food, amazing service, and wonderful ambience. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Geneva! But make sure you book as it is not big and very popular!

The atmosphere and service are excellent. The chateubriand was very well prepared and the sauces were also tastefull. All desserts are homemade and the service is simply fantastic. Try their merengue with coffee and amaretto.
