...at least they say. But sadly I did not enjoy it. It looked great, but taste was poor, not well structured or defined

First of all, this place can be a little hard to find, as it is tucked away in a pedestrian passage with mostly eerily empty shopfronts. So for initial atmosphere, this is a bit dissapointing. Inside is much better, but not anything special or specifically...More

If you would like to have an authentic Bistrot experience in Geneva, the Charlotte is strongly recommended. A menu made of traditional courses and delicious specials. The personnel is young and kind, and the whole place has a pleasant atmosphere.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and it didn’t disappoint. The food, wine but especially the service was exemplary - not to be missed !

I wasn’t planning on having a burger while in Geneva but this place was highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. Go all out and get the cheese (your choice) and bacon to make it worthwhile.

I had a business meal here recently. I had mushroom ravioli and rice pudding with salted caramel ice cream. Food was good. Wine was good too. Ambience is nice. We thought that the waitress was bit rude but otherwise we enjoyed the evening.

Typical and charming french bistrot very inspired from the traditionnal bouchon lyonnais and parisian brasserie. The food is delicate, tasty, generous and home-made ! We also provide excellent tapas for the afterworks every evening from 5.30pm with competitive happy hour ! Kitchen is open from Monday to Friday 12am to 2pm and 7pm to 10pm. And on Saturday from 7pm to 10pm.
