Felt like being on the deck of an ancient clipper deep at sea. I will remember that evening alone and the great wine and the greater food...

Wanting to have some good mussels in Geneva, I decided to try Francis after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. I took the mussels as a starter. Normally the chef has A.O.P. mussels from the Mont Saint Michel area but it's not yet the season. Even so, they were from Normandy and, I have to say, quite succulent. As a main, I... More

I know this restraurant for years now and I only tried mussels: marinara, provençal, etc. Doesn't matter how do you prefer them, they are just delicious! The price is very correct compare to other seefood restaurants. Excellent service. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague who enjoys seafood and especially mussels and we were told that you pay CHF30+ for all you can eat mussels. We were 6 and hence we ordered different sauces and I got to try different ones. Mussels: One word, SALTY. They tasted as though they were all boiled in uber salty water and... More

This bistrot has been around for a long time. A specialty is Mussels and "Pommes Frites". Filets de Perches from lake Geneva is another one ( not available out of season). Today, we had Salmon Tartare and the Côte de Boeuf. The beef is a serious piece of meat, normally shared between two people but the patron was quite happy... More
