We needed an early dinner near the theatre and boy was this a surprise. I saw the Cardon gratin as a side dish and ordered the meal. The entire dish of local meats (trilogie genevoise) was delicious. Each with its own flavor topped off with...More

Very good meal and priced fairly well located in the old town. We were a group of 8 people and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was also very good. As someone from out of town, would recommend.

Busy little tourist trap in centre of Old Town Geneva. Waiters worked very hard but were very busy so service was little slow. Good place to sit and relax though. Price for a Fondue for two was ridiculous at just under £40 for a small...More

Tucked inside the Vieille Ville, it is a traditional bistro. The room inside is very warm with quaint deco and the terrace a great relaxing place during summer times. We went there for the Fondue, one of the best we ever had, light and tasty...More
