The setting of La Perle du Lac is pretty exceptional and hard - although not impossible in or around Geneva itself - to beat on a beautiful summer’s evening. The food is perfectly adequate too, as is their service. You probably won’t regret giving them...More

On a sunny day what more can you ask than to have a table on the terrace and enjoy the view of the lake. The food was fine, the service friendly and professional, and we'd be happy to come back again anytime.
