We had dinner in one night and lunch on another day. On both occasions, our food was very good, and the waiters were great. It was full on both days, but we were able to get a table without reservation. The cheese fondue is delicious.

Very friendly. Swiss comfort food. Hard to go wrong on the menu. Our Geneva relatives took us here for dinner and the owners personally greeted them.

I ate dinner here with friends. The fondue was excellent, but the surprise was a side dish of asparagus with hollandaise sauce that was exceptional. I have never had such good asparagus. The desserts were wonderful too!.

Their Suggested Meal of the Day Is sumptuous and reasonably priced. The ambiance is nice, accessible to public transport and there’s a nearby parking lot just across the street.

We visited here on a Saturday lunchtime, a lovely cosy restaurant which is very reasonably priced in comparison to the rest of Geneva. The cheese fondue was brilliant. Would definitely go back.
