Charming location with a parking lot adjacent. Starter courses of vegetarian tart and terrine pate were scrumptious. Vegetarian main dish was a hodge podge. The fish main dish was too saucy. It was a full of locals celebrating Sunday lunch.

Great restaurant, lovely indoor garden setting. They have a choice of 3 course menus, from as little as 21 euro. We took the 35 euro one as it had duck foie gras and fillet steak. Very generous portions too. All beautifully presented. Attentive, but not OTT service, English speaking and an English menu too. The steak was excellent and perfectly... More

We looked on trip advisor and then asked the locals which of the top ones they would recommend. This came out top and boy were they right! Everything about this place was good. The room was part of a open courtyard that has been glazed over with a sliding roof. There are live trees around you and it must be... More

After a long drive from Geneva we wanted a simple meal for dinner. Our hotel recommended le relais des gourmets, a short walk from our hotel. I have to admit, we were not expecting what we got. The whole meal was delicious from starter, main course and dessert. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would go back to... More

As this restaurant is mentioned in all the guide books we thought it would probably be over-rated, but it's not! The service, food and ambience were great and very reasonably priced for such a smart and comfortable setting. Do book in advance as the restaurant gets very full - even on a Tuesday evening. I would certainly recommend a visit.

The waiting staff are very courteous and helpful. The food quality is excellent no doubt from the regular menu du jour to the more expensive... More
