On impulse, while in Lausanne, we decided to take the ferry from Nyon to Yvoire for lunch. It was a Sunday, and when we arrived in Yvoire, the place was packed with tourists and most restaurants were full and wouldn't let people wait for an open table. Jules Verne is one of the larger restaurants and did keep a list... More

I went to have lunch and I was a little afraid due to the bad reviews but I found a very friendly team and a more than acceptable food for a decent price. You can't expect something spectacular but as a normal weekdays lunch is worthy.

The food is very typical - no big surprises (positive or negative). The prices are on the higher side for such a type of restaurant. If you come during summer you can have a table outside. A positive spin for the winter is the bar downstairs where you can continue for your drink if you want. Good quality food but... More

Pleasant place, friendly service, seems to be moslty for folk from the quartier - locals. Short menu makes it easy to choose from. One "exotique" meal of the day to live up to "Jules Verne" name changes on the menu but it wasnt available the evening we dined there. Overall experience was ok but we felt it was a bit... More

Ordered the plat du jour of fish and vegetables. It was uncooked so I returned it, when it returned it was so overcooked it was uncomfortable to eat. I informed the server who informed me it was the fault of the fish....

I ate meals, had coffee, and had drinks 5 times in a week long stay in Geneva. The service was fine, contrary to some reviews. The drinks are quite good. I ordered an Irish coffee, and the manager apologized that it would not be up to snuff. I ordered anyway, and it's as good as you will get outside New... More

We usually go there with collegues to have drinks every week. The place is very nice and the drinks and food are really ok. We have been very disapponted with the behaviour of one of the waiter...very uncomfortable behaviour and unaccettable service...it is a pity because the place worth it to enjoy your evening with friends and colleagues. I think... More

Nice place but the service is quite disappointing, especially one of their waiters. I used to go several times a week, but I stopped becuase everytime this waiter was rude and unfriendly. It is a pity, since the food is good and they have a quite relaxing terrace

More that the food, we are in love with the decoration and the atmosphere. In the underground you have a bar where concerts are given.

Went with several colleagues for dinner. Food was reasonable and prices in line with other restaurants of the area. Unimpressed by the panna cotta-but it may just be me, others were quite happy with it. The room in the back is quieter than the rest of the place, but unfortunately is very close to the restrooms which can be bothersome.... More
