We came there on a Saturday for lunch and we took the 75€ menu (without any wine) named "Le Pré et la Marée"; with delicious and very original dishes. I especially liked the dessert of a pear flambée stuffed with roquefort. It is quite expensive at its very near the borders with Switzerland but you can still try it once... More

The food needs to be a little tastier and a little less fancy. Wine is on the expensive side. Always regularly full/frequented though so a popular restaurant. Nice location by Divonne lake to go for a walk after dessert!

In a town where good food options are hard to find the Rectiligne stands out. We went for the middle-menu at just over Euros 75.- The food was excellent,original and modern without going overboard. The desert was an extraordinary warm pear filled with roquefort.A must. Staff are efficient,location is on the lake,seating is private. I just found the wine a... More

So.... where to start? Well, the taste is just not there. There is nothing fantastic about the food. It's just dull!! We had lentils that were not cooked. The dessert was way too sweet and really didn't have anything exciting about it. Even writing the review about the restaurant is boring since everything about the food was lame. The service... More

Superbely elegant food often presented like little works of art! We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed! Lovely staff and in summer a pretty terrace overlooking the lake!

fantastic food, beautiful presentation, smooth service. The weekday lunch set menu is very reasonable (about 35€, exc. wine), dinner would have been quite expensive though (about 60€ for similar set menu). Great for a special occasion

Great meal (taste, presentation, quality of ingredients), almost "Michelin star" level. Value for money seems fair (menu Grand Large). The service level though is variable and not perfectly coordinated, some room for improvement here (bread replenishment, dish description not always clear, etc.). I will certainly return to this restaurant for the next occasion.

Beautiful contemporary place at the lake. The food is delicious from the starter to the amazing desert. The presentation of the food is awesome. Very good service.

Good intention when it started with modern style, homeopathic doses. Creative enough, but how uncomfortable you feel if you don't play the local Yuppie new rich comedy. Go if you lake around...
