This is very nice place, quite conveniently located about 20-30 minutes outside Geneva, on the side of the main Gex-Divonne road, with plenty of parking space. In the summer, there is a nice garden, close to a forest. But our last visit was in February, with rain and snow. Menu is good, and quite reasonaby priced. The full 4 course... More

Très deçus par notre diner de samedi soir. Malgré un ambience chalheureux, presentation exquise, et service comme il faut, tous nos plats manquaient de gout. Very disappointed by our visit on Saturday. The atmosphere and service were both good, and the presentation was most artistic. But every dish we ordered was tasteless. Such a pity!

We went in the evening and had a thoroughly good meal. The atmosphere is wood and stone and very cosy. Staff are welcoming and efficient. There is a few choices of menu which are reasonable as well as a la carte. We took the most expensive menu at 32Euros. The fois gras was excellent and well presented on a slate... More

Reliably good French food with a wide choice of salads, meat and fish. Service is friendly and the chalet decor is cosy. Good value for money in the Geneva region.

Les Vieux Bois is always busy and so one would expect that the food must be good. Well, it is! The décor is sort of country French with some odd high seated tables that actually work once you get used to them. And they are always improving the place with a significant landscaping effort over the last summer. We can... More

I'm in Divonne on business and instead of heading in to town took TripAdvisor's advice and headed up the hill to the edge of Divonne. And I'm very glad I did. Welcoming and friendly, and just as well I'd arrived early as before long it was bustling. The food was absolutely excellent, I'm not surprised it's so popular.

There is no doubt that this is a good value restaurant and the service was excellent. Personally I found the food slightly odd with what looked like adventurous choices on the menu which didn't quite come off.The presentation was a bit chaotic and although trying hard, again didn't quite work and I never thought I would say this but too...

Went for dinner with my family. This place offers a variety of French dishes. Great atmosphere. Chalet style. Excellent food. Very hospitable staff. I recommend to reserve in advance. Just out of the skirts of Divonne les bains. Everything on the menu is great. A wonderful evening. Prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended. I will definitely be visiting again
