Found this whilst walking in the old town close to the cathedral. There are a lot of other nice looking places but this really looked inviting cosy but lively. We had a lovely welcome and managed to get a cosy table for two in a corner. They offer special menus so I opted for their lamb shank with cous cous... More

During our 3 week visit in Geneva, we went to this cafe at least 4-5 times. Beautiful location in the old town, cosy cafe, amazing service. Their coffee was amazing. I highly recommend a visit there if you are in the old town in Geneva

Various lunch and dinner options, from Tagine to Pasta to Tapas to Salads and Meat options. The Salmon tartar with avocado is particularly lovely.

I like to go there for a drink and get some tapas (hot or cold) or a burger. They have nice, friendly and efficient staff. The food is good and they have plenty of drinks.

Could to get in any restaurant in the heart of the old town, so we decided to get back to our car to eat somewhere else when we passed by the demi lune. The atmosphere is casual. We got there and were greeted by a waiter who was quick and efficient. He sat us to a table right in front... More

Have been here a couple of times and there is always a nice cozy and buzzing atmosphere. On top of this the staff is very friendly, the food is great and at a good price. Would recommend it for a dinner with friends for a good catch up!

I went there to have lunch with a friend during week-days. I recommend to reserve even there are a lot of tables. The decorations is really nice and the staff are kind and helpful. The menu is large with season dishes, international, hamburgers, sandwichs. A lot of choices in drinks also. Prices are correct for Geneva.

This restaurant has a varied menu but the tagine that I ordered was returned to the kitchen as not only was it unpleasant to look at, it was tasteless and not hot. The salad that came in its place was good but the dessert was also disappointing as instead of the chocolate fondue that I ordered, I was given a... More

Great location! We sat in the dining hall, which was a bit quieter than the café, so that we could have a decent conversation. I wish the menu would offer more local specialties and less "international" dishes (burgers, sandwiches, pasta). The wine list could need a push, too. The food itself was very reasonable (I had the venison).

Thank Stefan T
