This place is a bit remote from the center of Geneva and probably attract more the locals than the tourist you can even come by boat and anchor in front of the restaurant.

This nice restaurant is situated on board the lake, a very picturesque place. We wanted to enjoy the view and the meal yesterday afternoon. But the awful service spoilt the whole impression. We waited for the menu for a long time, then the waitress brought us the water almost at the end of the meal, in spite of several requests.... More

I lived in Geneva for ten years within walking distance to this charming restaurant on the lake. It's always my favourite place to go . In the summer sit outside on the spacious patio covered with the leaves of old trees, threaded with lights..

I was taken here by a friend who lives in Geneva and we went especially for the local delicacy - perch, freshly caught in Lake Geneva. We had hoped to sit on the terrace - unfortunately it was pouring with rain so we had to sit inside. I gather it is very cosy in winter with the open fire. I... More

Little town, seaside restaurant with good quality food and smiley service. Friendly welcoming restaurant, doesn't have a big menu with a lot of different plates which makes a difference from a touristic restaurant. We all served well, we all had the same lake fish with different dressing with delicious fried potatoes. We had a very nice evening in this restaurant.

Went as four people . We had a range of dishes - meat, good fish but struggled as one of the party is vegetarian. The restaurant needs to recognise that there are a lot of vegetarians! Beautiful location right by the lake.

Indeed we don't have many vegetarian dishes in the menu because of the lack of demand from our costumers. On the other hand, the Chef will be happy to suggest some vegetarian courses if necessary.

This place used to have a concept, ten years ago. It still has. But not the same: it was about food, now it's about making money… well it is a business after all. The location is great, ring side-lake side, parking on the spot… it's all there. But the quality of the food is somewhat to be questioned. Such a... More

Beautiful location with large terrace close to the lake. Excellent and friendly service. Limited menu with no vegetarian option. Good and simple food but it could be tastier. Interesting crowd from the neighboring chic suburbs of Geneva.

I grew up in the house next door. This restaurant used to be called Madame Saxo's named after the woman who owned it.
