Description: A fine Bistro in the heart of Geneva. Offering a seasonal menu and a wine list of 100 references.
Reviewed 12 July 2018

This very friendly place offers excellent quality at reasonable prices for expensive Geneva. The menu is short but carefully chosen from seasonal ingredients. Everyone in our party, both French and American, was very happy with their dinner, and the hospitality was first rate. The guys who run the place advertise that "life is too short to drink bad wine," and the selection we got lived up to the promise: a delicious and rather rare Swiss Païen from the amusingly titled "Histoire de l'Enfer" winery.

Great vibe in this place. The pork belly was amazing and the beer selection was spot on. Great service as well.

This is a nice place where it is easy to have some good time. The menu is short, modern and well balanced and the food is simply good. Good products, nice presentation, pleasant taste. Nothing extraordinary but the pleasure is here. Location is not the best, although reasonably central it is on a high traffic street, but once inside that is no longer a problem. Service courteous and efficient. Prices average. Definitely a good address in Geneva.
