A family run restaurant whose house speciality of "La potence flambée au whisky" is really excellent. The beef fillet used was tender and delicious; the chef flambéed it at our table with a great sense of theatre. We found the staff to be friendly and attentive

Serving meat in a Brazilian style with rice and salad. They do a little show for those who request the meat with alcohol. Desert was good as well and they service was excellent. Reservation is recommended

The potence served here is the most delicious in town. My friends and mine have visited other restaurants in Geneva serving the potence but the quality of the meat, the tenderness and the way it is flambeed and served is an experience to behold and savour. There is even a display above the counter that tells you how many potences... More

Even if the environment is not appealing I definitely recommend this place. Very nice and fast service. Excellent products and the "Potence" is original. I would put 5 stars if the French fries were homemade and the bread slightly better.

This place never disappoints. Take the signature "potence" - a hanging skewer of tender beef flambé at the table. Always delicious and great theatre too!

This place has been consistent. A great beef quality with delicious marination. Go for their speciality the Potence, it comes with an interesting show. A typical Swiss place with great family run restaurant. Prices are reasonable in Geneva standards. Located in somehow a gloomy place if you're going in the evening, though great restaurants in Geneva are all in slightly... More

I was quite hesitant as to what rating I should give this restaurant. It all depends on how many variables you take under consideration when you give the rating. So as to be clear I'm giving a 4 star rating only based on how the food tasted and when I say food I don't mean that ridiculous excuse for a... More

My wife and me eat there regularly and are always delighted with the speciality of the house, the "potence" - the gallows. Even if it sounds gruesome, its terrific. Meat cooked according to your wish, flambéed with Whisky. You get rice and several sauces to choose from. Gorgeous.

Thank olivierc47
