Great wine and charcuterie place, great atmosphere, decent priced dishes, yet it only got 3 stars from us because we came for dinner and wanted a bit more ample dishes. Would recommend as a place to meet friends with wine and nibbles.

The quick served french/Mediterranean food is quite good and for a good price.
The "fougasse" which is an olive focaccia is quite nice.
The staff is just not very friendly and they refused we pay separately or by card.
Like most cash only places, the just refuse to make it easy for the customer.

Tapas style, good taste and combinations. Kitchen is open until late perfect for an after dinner with beer or delicioius tea. Not suitable for groups, better for a Tinder date!

If you are at Flagey longing for delicious and unpretentious food, this is you place. I Really liked the aubergine tatin and the desserts. Also a good selection of wine. We were quite a big group and the staff was very helpful when we wanted to pay separately.

Penates is a place i associate with nice feelings and moments. Not too far from home and an ideal base for returning from forest excursions. It always provides a warm, down to earth, glorious feeling. The food is not exceptionally varied, menu has not changed in the last year, but warm noodles can be one of your best memories when you come back to town frozen after 6 hours hiking. The wine is also excellent, although if you are on the bio side it might carve a hole in your wallet. Alltogether Penates is what everyone knows, a home base for some and a great place to try.
