A nice outdoor cafe with tapas (small plates). Most are cold plates. We tried hummus, Serrano ham with Manchego cheese, and a salad. Three selections was enough for a light dinner. To me there was nothing special about the view or accomodations. Reasonably priced for...More

Came across this as we were walking past and made a point of going for brunch/breakfast. Lovely setting with views of Lake Geneva and quietly set in a park by the Brunswick Monument. Substantial home produced breakfast in a lovely setting.

Set in the park behind the big statue with the fountain. Exclusively a tapas menu but serves drinks and has a great atmosphere. Pricey but great!

Really enjoyed our drinks and meal last night. Had wines and beers and several amazing dishes. We had several dishes: Aubergines, Iberico duo, mushrooms, figs, chicken wings and the crayfish. All very, very good. Will definitely come to Cottage Cafe when I'm next in Geneva.

What a wonderful place to meet friends, take a break from the bustle of the city, and the raspberry sorbet is delicious. I was also happy to note the service was excellent & friendly.

Cafe restaurant with outdoor seating in the back of a small park near the lake. Grassy areas and a little pool, and many young children were playing, having a good time, while parents were dining on a number of tasty small plates. Fun for everyone.

I couldn't help but photograph this cafe when I first walked past it. It is so cute and located within a picturesque garden near the lake. I was thrilled when a good friend of mine (who lives in Geneva) took me there for a selection...More
