It happened that this restaurant was just next to the hotel i was staying at and i tried it because it was heavily raining and didn't want to go further in town. Surprisingly the menu was rich with daily suggestions from the chef. Apparently you need a prior reservation but as we were only 2 persons and it was still... More

This 'cafe' was next door to my hotel and, following TripAdisor ratings, I went to it, quite late after my flight. The welcome was warm and the menu terrific. I had foie gras, following by morels (mushrooms) cooked with basil and cream, then a splendid rhubarb and strawberry compote with meringues. The service was excellent. Good wine by the glass...

Food was excellent. I had riz de veau which was cooked in a tasty sauce with morel mushrooms. Service was the best I have ever seen in Geneva. The place is relatively quiet and decor is pleasant. You can't go wrong here.

The starters were very good -- scallops brochette and terrine de pate. The main course -- a lobster cassoulet -- was disappointing. The lobster was either previously frozen, or terribly overcooked, as it was tasteless and pasty. The desserts were the typical fare -- flan, crème brulee, etc. There are only two servers for the whole restaurant, and so it... More

We had the basic lunch menu and were surprised with the high quality of the dishes. Fresh, tasty, nicely presented and the servings were rather generous. But this culinary happiness was cut down by; noisy atmosphere, service on the slow side (probably because they look understaffed), and a bill a little high. Overall the good in all this is that...

I have eaten now 4 of 10 proclaimed burger places in town. They are all terrible! This little hidden gem is a must try in Geneva. The burger isn't even on the menu. It's a specialty that is given homage on the wall. A huge description of where all the ingredient come from. This is the first burger I have... More

I recently went to the Cafe des Sources with colleagues after a day-long conference, and we all had a wonderful time. Although we would have liked to have eaten outside, we came en mass of about 12 people, but they accommodated us quickly inside by moving tables together. The beer was nice on a warm day, and the risotto aux... More

Our plates were all very tasty. But the service was slow. And bread arrived when we finished our plates. Same for the coffee, we asked to have desserts & coffee at the same time but we had our expresso after.....

I have been to the restaurant 4 or 5 times, both for dinner and for lunch. What keeps making me want to go back is the food, but every single time I have been there the service has been terrible. You have to chase them to get anything, and end up waiting 15 minutes for a glass of wine or... More
