Good and sophisticated french food. Variety of choices also with kids menu. Prices more similar to Switzerland than France. Crowded at lunch with day trippers across the lake Leman. Nice terrace with lake view.

The entrance to this marvellous restaurant is right beside the ancient city gates. We ate outside in glorious sunshine overlooking the lake with snow on the mountains as a picture perfect backdrop. Protected from the light breeze by the stone city walls this was a...More
