I ordered the grilled tuna with sesame seeds. It was 34 CHF. About 2/3 of the plate was covered with plain, bland white rice with bits of green that appeared to be chive bits. The tuna serving was very small but adequate in taste. It...More

Following the recommendation from local co-workers in Geneva, four of us(from the USA) had dinner here. We all had different variations of the Rostis, and all were very pleased. The waiter was very helpful, explaining the menu for ingredients we did not understand. The price...More
