Description: Le Loti, for the best of flavours. When the excellence of exceptional produce is sublimated in perfectly mastered cooking, taste and smell are fulfilled. Nothing more, nothing less... The chef has made simplicity an irresistible recipe, beyond time and fashion. The seasons change, amazement remains every day of the year. Wagyu beef carpaccio and summer truffle shavings, mashed potatoes with Bormane olive, Roasted codfish from Norwegian fjords, Linguine with Brittany lobster...

Just ate in Le Lotti for the first time, and certainly won't be the last. Lovely room, with tremendous staff that are attentive, warm and just the right sort of amusing as well. Menu is clever mix of traditional dishes and some more creative ones. Langoustine starter in particular is very clever and mouthwatering. Introduced to the Lady Chef too, who seems very nice.

Le Loti is housed in "La Reserve" Hotel right outside Geneva, right next to the Lake. Went there twice and great experience each time. This is very much a traditional "Gastronomique" restaurant French style, very similar to what you can find in Paris. The food was both innovative, yet the quality of the underlying products was top notch. The Service absolutely superb. Not overwhelming, but very attentive, not stiff as this can be the case in some high-end restaurants, yet with just the right level of friendliness. Food was really top notch. Overall it's the kind of experience you expect out of a 1 or even 2 Michelin Star establishment. For instance, I recently had dinner at "Le Triannon, Versailles" Gordon Ramsay's restaurant outside Paris (1 Michelin *) and I consider le Loti to be superior both in terms of Service, Food, and also Value for money. (and it's rare for something in Switzerland to have a better value for money compared to France). My prediction is that soon enough le Loti will be awarded Michelin Stars, and you will need to book a long time in advance, so take advantage of it now.

Have already been to the Chinese restaurant so wanted to try the gastronomic experience. Excellent reception and the setting on the first floor gives lovely views of the gardens and the Lake in the background. The decoration is first class and we had an excellent table on the terrace. As it was holiday period the chef was not there but Georges Blanc was eating in the Chinese restaurant ! Delicious appetisers and selected wine to go with each course. Difficult to choose from the interesting mixtures from this excellent lady chef who is 'Meilleur Ouvrier de France'. Colours and mixtures for the desserts were also excellent, you can find the menu on the website for more information. It isn't a cheap evening but it's worth the money and the enjoyment of an splendid backdrop and succulent food...we'll be back

All the team joins me to thank you very much for your nice review shared on Tripadvisor.
We are really glad to read that you enjoyed your gastronomic experience at Le Loti.
Even if the Chef was not present, she is touched to read your lovely words today.
The terrace of the Loti is probably one of the best view of the lake, the Mont-Blanc and the garden, and the perfect place to enjoy a tasty and fine dinner.
We look forward to welcome you soon again, and the Chef will be happy to meet you,
Sincerely,
Laurent Branover
General Manager

We went for a cosy dinner for 2. We had a great place on the terrasse of the restaurant with view on the swimming pool, the lake and the Mont Blanc. Besides the great à la carte selections, we were spoiled with a trio of amuses followed by a wonderful amuse of strawberry sorbet with rocket salad and red bell pepper jelly. The signatory starter from sea bass with oysters and caviar is really a great recommendation. After our deserts, there were some more sweet amuses to finish the evening. Must be said that the viognier wine from Graubunden was brilliant but a bit expensive at 22CHF a glass. Overall the 300 CHF was well spent!
