The food was great, and our waiter was especially helpful to older family members, but this restaurant excels because of its location.

Within 10-15 minute easy walking distance of Geneva's Central Business District is a jewel which sits in a wooded park on the lake shore. It must have been a wealthy nobleman's lake house at one time, had a distinctly residential layout. The dining rooms were capacious, the views panoramic, and the lights on the south shore twinkled in the crisp... More

I have gone twice to this restaurant and advise that anyone who visits same should get tables closer to the view, especially when the weather allows.

We decided to go there to enjoy the nice setting, and see if the reputation of the restaurant is justified. Conclusion: forget it!!! Food is decent, but nothing unexpected. Staff is extremely disorganized. They obviously do not have allocated areas and can forget customers for a long time. You should expect to wait a lot before anyone actually bothers taking... More

I visited here three times over a two week period. The first time three of us went for dinner. That time the staff were lovely, food was great and it was lovely. It was very expensive and I thought overpriced but I still liked it. We were celebrating the life of a friend who had died that day. She had... More

With its stunning views of Geneva and the lake from its ample outdoor dining terraces, this was simply the best place to watch the fireworks that end the Fetes de Geneve in mid-August. There was a three-course menu without choices, but I shouldn't complain, we were lucky to get this reservation a week before, and the food was delicious, the... More

Our two couples could not have picked a sweeter spot to enjoy a mouth-watering lunch in a very special lakeside setting. Two of us had the fixed price lunch, which included a tasty shrimp risotto starter, a chicken entree and an outstanding dessert tray, which included a superb Black Forest cake and excellent fruit tarts. The total bill was expensive... More

We were walking down the lake of Geneva to the park close by and just saw this restaurant. We wanted to have something to eat but the service was extremely unpolite: all tables were available and almost nobody there but we were not allowed to sit at the tables closest to the water because they were reserved for 4 people...

We decided to celebrate my wifes Birthday by having lunch at the Restaurant La Perle Du Lac and what a great choice that turned out to be. This is a fantastic traditional restaurant with smartly dressed, very professional and attentive staff that look after you from start to finish.
