Food was generally good but not excellent. Given the standard of the restaurant I was expecting better taste. I was a bit disappointed in the sense that the dishes were not very original in terms of taste although they were good. Service was great. Staff were particularly welcoming, with attention to details. We enjoyed our dinner. Restaurant settings and decor... More

We have been eating there from time to time for the last 5 years. The location with the chateau, its park and terrace with views over lake Geneva is still a major asset for this establishment. We liked the new chef's menu, everything was excellent. They still provide two rounds of appetizers, plus a "pré dessert", which shows commitment to... More

The kitchen has ambition and is certainly capable of fine cooking. We had dinner here two nights in a row and both showed classic french cooking with some elegant and even innovative touches. Excellent quality and skillful preparation. We enjoyed the food. Two problems though: 1. The service is more than slow. The staff kind indeed, but the kitchen must... More

The setting is beautiful. On a warm Summer evening dinner on the terrace is magical. The food is well presented and is good although the portions can be very stingy. The service was extremely long and it took more than an hour for our appetizers and another hour for our main dish. If one judges by the very high prices... More

I am a world traveler and I think a very seasoned traveler for more than 50 years as well were my parents who traveled in different times with us young children. So when I say this was a terrible place for food and in France! although shocking, it is true.

The food was great but the portions went beyond nouvelle cuisine (even smaller portions). The sea-bass portion was perfect but the veal looked as if it had been cut with a scalpel under a microscope. Dessert was amazing though pure chocolate delight with crunchy caramelised sugar and I think pecans crushed up. The weather was perfect and the view from... More

Description
In the dining room of the Chateau de Divonne, you will enjoy the special atmosphere of a beautiful family home converted into a restaurant. Authentic floors, fresco by Jean Debaub representing the banks dreamed of Lake Divonne in the romantic style, family portraits, soft colors combine to create a rare setting near Geneva. The dining room "Duchess Vendôme" is located on the ground floor, windows provide light and stunning views of the mountains. From the first lovely days, the terrace facing Mont Blanc chain is very appreciated for lunch and dinner.
