The restaurant has excellent service, the food is of a good quality, though a bit expensive. Other added value is the excellent lake view. Recommended for fine dining.

When planning my small trip in Geneva, I was eager to enjoy a Michelin-starred gourmet and finally picked up this restaurant for dinner due to its great reputation and location (I just stayed at the same hotel where the restaurant was located), and it truly gave me a perfect dining experience. Credited with one Michelin star, this restaurant had neat,... More

Charging a lot for great food is acceptable but what justifies outrageous wine prices? Nevertheless still had a very special meal.

Came for lunch on a Saturday. Had the three course set which at 77 CHF including a glass of wine and coffee is remarkable value. We had one of everything from the menu and dishes were consistently superb. Amuse bouche was tasty, as was the local wine and petit four. Bread and flavoured butter great fun. Worked out about £60...

After reading the positive reviews. We went for a birthday dinner on Saturday night. The food and service was truly first class. Each course tasted wonderful we had difficulty finishing all the courses. The staff were very helpful and assisted in taking a birthday photograph. We thoroughly enjoy the whole experience well done Bayview we will come again.

Booked for 2. Service was a joy to behold, everyone treating you as a Special Guest. We had the "Taster" Menu, and each course was a work of Art...delicate and delightful. Wine, on the advice of the waiter, matched the meal beautifully. Michel Roth came to the table and introduced himself. Expensive, but a real treat not to be missed.

We went to the Bayview to try the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was just perfect, a rare combination of cozy ambience, sophisticated service and haute cuisine. The food - that was a kind of food that makes you "wow" with each bite and indulge yourself into a rainbow of flavours. We had a nice chat with... More

We went for dinner to this restaurant on a Saturday night. We had read the reviews and they looked good, but it surpassed our expectations. We decided to skip starters and just have a main and dessert. This was a good decision as we were brought different varieties of delicious bread, with three different types of butters, followed by a... More
