For such a wonderful location the restaurant could be so much better. It is clearly popular, given its premiere position on the water in the center of town, but the service could be more attuned to customer needs, the specials for lunch more creative and so forth. We are occasional clients, but would be regulars if it I,proved and didn't... More

I understand the old saying that says "When you are in Rome DO as the ROMAN do" But This is Geneva, an International destination among other things, is home to the European headquarters of UNO, meaning you get people from all over the world.

Went here for evening meal with my two sons. Whilst we found it very expensive, this was an average priced place and in defense the food was to die for and I don't mind expense provided the food is well above par which it was and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We waited 15 minutes for our order to be taken (had to call the waiter ourselves multiple times). When taking the order, the waiter informed us we were given the previous month's menu so we had to pick our meals all over again. Once our order was finally taken, we waited a short 65minutes to get our food, and of... More

We showed up after shopping (two people), we were left standing for minutes while the waiter was not doing anything. We then had to ask the waiter (who was not doing anything) for a seat. He acted very annoyed (there was plenty of seating), then we were given menus. We were never given the blankets as it appeared everyone else... More

We had dinner here a few nights ago and had only one complaint; we had to wait around five or ten minutes from the time we closed our menus to actually place our order. When the waitress did arrive though, she was lovely and very attentive. Food was very nice and ambience is lovely. I've read here that it is... More

Good location, good service and good food. Tables are not crammed together whether sitting inside or out which is great for conversation. Good wine list and friendly staff who will explain dishes.
