You won't be disappointed by La Plancha, but you won't be wow'ed either. The food is decent, the service is OK, the place looks OK. But nothing beyond OK. The prices are a bit high, and for those prices one could do better in Geneva

Great food, atmosphere and service. I loved that they had 2 different sizes for the starters. The Mediterranean style octopus was delicious. It was tender, flavorful and nicely complimented by watercress and tomatoes while the potatoes made the dish filling.
