a bit out of main Geneva, this is a typical local restaurant, very well liked by my colleagues, for me it was a bit similar to the rest, but nice good food.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Fantastic food and wine and great service. Also plenty of space between tables which is a rarity in Geneva.

Horrible risotto, acceptable tartare in an anonymous setting with high prices. There are many better places in town.

The escapade is part of a family run business. 4 brothers each with a restaurant. The food is exquisite! Must try their risotto with truffle and creamy buratta! The service is professional and the waiters can talk to you in great detail about their products. Very nice wine list. In summer they have a large terrace that is hidden from... More

A few stops on the bus from central Geneva's sky-high prices, we enjoyed a memorable meal at this friendly, genuine restaurant. I kicked off with the octopus; it was a single 6" tentacle, slightly crisp on the outside and really tender.

I went there with 3 other friends and we had a great time there! The waiter was friendly which made up for his slight mistakes, and the food was as appealing to the eye as to the stomach! I'll be back :)
