I have been coming to this restaurant for years but not many times previously. However, for the last year, every single time I visit Geneva I always come here. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful too. The food is amazing and cooked to perfection....More

I've been here many times with friends, with colleagues and on dates with my wife. Tasty typical bistrot fare, good wines and a lively atmosphere. It's not cheap, but the quality and the friendly service are consistent.

After reviewing TA, we walked over to reserve a table for 3 on the next day for lunch. Window displayed Michelin 2016... We ordered salad, escargots, steaks and a bottle of red wine. Food was yummy and service was excellent.

It has to be 5 stars. Unusually for us, we skipped starters and went straight for the Chateaubriand to share. It's not cheap, but I can say it's probably the best steak I've ever had. It looked like thick slices of roast beef,  melted in...More
