I thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Le Chat-Botte. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu and the Sommelier gave us excellent guidance for a nice local Chardonnay. The numerous aperitifs were a surprise. They were both elegant and clever with the marriage of flavours. We had the prawn entree which was delicious followed by the veal shank and pollock,... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal on the veranda outside in the sun. I ordered the risotto and a salad. Both were very tasty. The waiters were all extremely nice and polite. One tip though if you prefer to sit outside - when it is windy you might find particles from the roof blown onto your table and plate as there is... More

Nice dishes especially the sea food. A bit disappointed because don't offer a Valentines menu for lunch but the service was on high level. The chocolate desserts are incredible.

Had a late dinner for two. Generally the food is typical 1 star level. Some dishes need more attention. Cheese tray was not bad at all. Restaurant offers nice views in the terrace and is conveniently located near Four Seasons and inside the Beau Rivage. Needs more attention to detail in terms of the quality of the dishes/cooking. Overall pleasant... More

Le Chat-Botté has recently been completely refurbished. The new décor is stunning! Although nothing extravagant (apart from a few candelabra!), the light shades on both wall and floor and the table settings (set well enough apart to enable a private conversation) give a cosy yet elaborate atmosphere! The food is awesome, a pleasure for the eyes and the palate! The... More

Out of all the places I have ever eaten in Switzerland, this is by far the best. Attentive but not intrusive staff add to the experience. Expensive but for those special occasions, worth every Swiss Franc!

We had a romantic evening here and it was truly wonderful. The seven-course tasting menu is a fantastic culinary experience. Every dish was well prepared from good ingredients and we left feeling extremely content.
