We showed up after shopping (two people), we were left standing for minutes while the waiter was not doing anything. We then had to ask the waiter (who was not doing anything) for a seat. He acted very annoyed (there was plenty of seating), then we were given menus. We were never given the blankets as it appeared everyone else... More

We had dinner here a few nights ago and had only one complaint; we had to wait around five or ten minutes from the time we closed our menus to actually place our order. When the waitress did arrive though, she was lovely and very attentive. Food was very nice and ambience is lovely. I've read here that it is... More

Good location, good service and good food. Tables are not crammed together whether sitting inside or out which is great for conversation. Good wine list and friendly staff who will explain dishes.

I have only ever had their DOP pizza here and I would rank it at N.3 for Geneva after Luigia and DaPaolo. So, pretty good. The restaurant is in an ideal location in Geneva and I was very impressed by their service for families. We went for lunch with friends who have to young girls. The waiter came up with... More

There is hardly a more charming lake-side terrace than this one. The food is very good. Although the ambiance inside in the winter isn't that great at the moment, the new young team have plans to correct this.

I've eaten here over the years but not recently until today, and I won't be going back. Surly service, very average food and indifferent ambience. It felt like going back 30 years. Brasserie Lipp is in another league.

The menu is primarily Italian with some fresh seafood and seasonal game offering. Our group had some pasta, risotto, grill seafood and pheasant. The food was very good. The service was a little slow but fine for a business lunch.

Thi sretaurant serves a wonderful dinner with lake view. It is as most of the restaurant s in Geneva quite expensive but the food is good and the service good. If you want to dine higher segment then this is a good choice.
