This is (was) my first choice for sophisticated but affordable French cuisine just half a mile from the Geneva-Ferney border (take the F bus from Geneva train station). Especially at lunchtime, you can (could?) enjoy a nice meal for a reasonable price (relatively to Geneva...More

Went as a party of four. Soupe de poisson was way too watery. My Sole meuniere was well made. The crustacean dishes aren't as good as what you can get in downtown Geneva. Good tarte tatin. Friendly service but place was freezing. Took the menu...More

Lots of great seafood. Oysters, sea snails, lobster, crab, langoustines etc. What's not to love? Interesting to see a complete mix of people eating - from those definitely dressed up for the evening to those, like us, coming back after a day on the pistes!
