I had a dinner at this fancy retaurant in Geneve. It reminds me somehow the Parisian Palais du Tokyo with a perfect match between food and art. Despite I'm not a real fan of the vegan cuisine I found that the food at this restaurant has a twist of design. The offer is not too wide and you can make... More

It's a great restaurant. More artistic, more informal, with high ceilings and fun art pieces hanging everywhere. We sat upstairs and had a great view of the inside and outdoors (because of the huge windows). The food was terrific - it feels as if the kitchen likes to mix flavours, and it works! The Moroccan salad was a real treat.

Very nice blend of art, good food and nice ambiance. Works for just a drink, romantic dinner or group gatherings. The menu variety is great. Service is always busy but very nice.

An artsy boho locale with a warm (and quite un-Swisslike) welcome for the solo diner. I had the really extraordinary Moroccan salad and tasty pumpkin soup with a glass of gamay. It's a really nice environment whether you are alone, with a friend or with a party. And of course the Grutli arts center is an extraordinary center of cinema,... More

The cafe fits the location. Decoration and ambience is very modern, and so is the food. A rather short menu, everything with a touch of creativity, and a selection of wine by the glass. The food was good, including the vegan dish that i decided to try just because it sounded interesting. Prices are, well, typically expensive as everything in... More

Enjoyed meeting a few friends and it was very pleasant. Friendly and helpful staff, delicious lamb, good wine list and very enjoyable. While keeping a certain simplicity the presentation of the food was very nice and elegant, tasty food and certainly the helpful staff made a big difference from other busy places who somehow dont have time for you!

This is the second time I've visited here and the second time we waited ages for service. The waiter or waitress looks at you then just wonders off never to be seen again.

Simple and cool but efficient service, short menu, pleasant atmosphere...very good cuisine and carefully presented dishes. Sounds like a simple recipe but obviously not something any place manage to master! This is the case in Cafe du Grutli. We had another pleasant experience there recently.
