A colleague living in Geneva brought us there for dinner. Nice settings in a green spot in the middle of town. Service was pleasant. Food not bad, but nothing exceptional

This restaurant has a number of things going for it: it's well located centrally in Geneva, it's in a small park, if you're with kids they can play while you eat and keep an eye on them, and it's unpretentiousness means that your expectations as a customer will be moderate and hopefully easy to meet. This mostly happens food-wise. Nothing... More

We highly enjoyed our meal. The menu is a bit special, since (at night) you only get tapas choice. You have a very vast list of tapas so it takes some time to chose :) the food is very good and the dishes are delightful. The highlight is the terrasse in summer. Very beautiful and big. Right by the lake,... More

The location of Cottage Café is amazing! Right in the middle of a calm park, with view to the lake and great overall ambience. I had only had coffee, drinks and tapas there, which were a bit overpriced but decent. The service, however, very dissapointing. We had to wait a long time to order and even more to get our... More

I recommend this restaurant to everyone! They have a nice location near the lake with a wonderful view on the lake and the Brunswick monument and a little fountain that gives fresh air in warm days. Food is delicious. There is no big choice and it's simply enough, 3 salads, Fish, Meat, Pasta and Vegetable Lasagna. All of them are... More

Open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Very different menus are served lunchtime and dinner. Dinner focuses on a tapas menu which is so good for sharing. The location is a quiet square just two minutes from the lake (rive droite). This is my fave place for a summer's evening in Geneva.

This place is perfect for getting cosy in winter (try the lasagne. I hate pumpkin but I cannot get enough of this) and a charming place in summer as it's located in a mini park with a fountain and feels like it isn't right next to the road. You can enjoy some amazing quality food that is both fresh and... More

This place has a lovely situation near the lake overlooking the Alps on the far shore. A lovely spot for a summer's evening. It is basically tapas-style (i.e. small portions) and all the dishes we ordered were very nice. However, at around 15CHF for each dish it comes out pretty pricey if this is your main meal of the day!... More

An exceptional terrace for enjoying nice dishes or just for a drink. The view is very nice, the place is calm and the menu is very appealing. The dishes are small and don-t hesitate to enjoy more than one (a bit like tapas concept). Everything I tried was very good and the wine was nice. I your are lucky enough... More
