It was shortly before 19:00. The waiter said that it is only possible to have a drink up to seven o'clock and after that all the tables would be for eating. So we decided to eat. The food was actually delicious. Compliments to the chef!...More

We ordered chicken dish (or what can be described as chicken croissant) and it was satisfying experience. Never thought that a French speaking city would have a restaurant with proper portion sizes. Strongly recommended for quality of service and food taste.

Amazing place if you want to experiment fine tapas from around the world. Service is good. Prices are a bit high given the quantities but... It's Geneva.

A mix of super delicious tapas with a good selection of wines. Cozy homey atmosphere inside and a nice summer terrace overlooking the lake. Very efficient and friendly staff. My latest favourite place!

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
