The restaurant offers breathtaking view. We enjoy our food from the appetizer (Gravlax salad), main courses (grilled Perch fillets, prawn & mushrooms tagliatelle) and desserts (Creme Brulee, Chocolate fondant cake with vanilla ice cream). The food is a bit slow though, but, it makes up by a very friendly service. We love the experience!

The food was average, nothing special. The owner seemed to be nice and polite. However, the waitresses weren't nice at all. The service was not good in general.

We booked a table close to the window one week before my birthday celebration. When we arrived they told us that we could not sit there. They asked us to wait 5 minutes outside and after 25 minutes we left very unhappy. At least they apologized several times and invited us to the apero. It is a pity because we... More

Simple and rather modern. Whether just to drink some cofee or to have a full meal, a wonderfully quiet place to go and enjoy life.

Finding nice, well-priced restaurants in Switzerland can be hit-and-miss. The Debarcadere is a bit of a 'hidden gem', serving simple, well-cooked dishes at reasonable cost. Great views, and friendly service will greet you - and an added bonus, most of the staff can speak English too! Cuisine style is mostly Swiss-French - the menu certainly is not especially 'adventurous', but... More

I live in St Sulpice so was looking for something nearby and decided to try this place just with my wife. The view is amazing. Food is average and attention was nothing spectacular. Even within Swiss standards, price was not cheap. I'm not coming back.

Far from my first visit to this wonderfully situated restaurant, however after a good few months we have visited again I am glad we did as we found a good number of subtle changes which combined showed the continuous effort and attention to detail For example a much better selection of champagnes than previously, and further growth in variety and...

A restaurant with a lovely view of the lake Geneva(Leman for the French). The food was good and very well cooked. The service was quite quick considering the restaurant was fully occupied.

The family had a Sunday lunch on the terrace. Staff inexperienced and disorganized. The children had pasta, although we asked three times for grated cheese, it arrived with the dessert. Children's portion or fish filets was delivered without sauce tartare, which we were told was "mass produced", not made on site. My risotto was very bland and again three requests... More

I went to the restaurant with my girlfriend for her birthday. I had to book with a few days of advance since they're often full, even on weekdays and especially during summer. I also have the impression that the parking spots they have are very limited. The location of the restaurant doesn't have equals on the lake Leman. You can... More
