About the restaurant Eligo

DU LATIN FAIRE UN CHOIX - Eligo vous propose une cuisine jeune et innovante, raffinée et généreuse, dans un espace à l'élégance minimaliste. Les produits sont de premier choix, locaux.

LE CHEF- Guillaume Rainex s'est façonné dans des maisons parisiennes de haute volée : le Four Seasons de l'Hôtel George V, le restaurant Seize, le Jules Verne ou encore La Table du Lancaster. Il intègre ensuite l'équipe d'Anne-Sophie Pic à Valence puis au Beau-Rivage à Lausanne. Il était temps pour lui de faire ses propres choix créatifs.

LE LIEU - L'aspect urbain et industriel sur deux étages, la table d'hôtes devant la cuisine vitrée, vous met tout de suite dans l'ambiance : il va se passer quelque chose !

Excellent service and aesthetically pleasing modern restaurant - the tasting menu “large” as of October 2019 was simply not Michelin Star quality in our view, based on our collective prior experience. It was a decent meal, but the food at the nearby Bib Gourmand was better and substantially cheaper.

Lovely restaurant, very pleasant staff. The food was good but not brilliant. Quite conventional French standards, competently done. To be fair, my guest, who eats there often, said the food was normally much better.

Simple booking process, nice location, excellent service, wonderful high-quality food. The only downside was that the Moelleux au chocolat was a little over cooked, without a liquid center. Will certainly come here again!

I have expected an art, a great culinary experience while the food was not up to that level. Gazpacho, I have to be honest, was indeed with that touch and that taste that I will remember for a long time. Really lovely. But the main courses - the most expensive dish in the menu, lobster, was disappointing. Nothing special in terms of taste, I also had a piece of shell that had not been removed (guess this was an accident?) but green pea pure was not really green , it looked overcooked and definitely lost its color. Pasta with ricotta was really promising when we looked at it but again - there was not that kick, that flavor we were expecting, rather an average meal. Also, we were two but we received only one tablet with the menu and we had to share it (the restaurant was not busy at all) which I find a big faux pas towards clients. A pity, as this could really turn into more visits and inviting friends over, but I am not planning to come back.

Food was good but nothing exceptional and some people even were dining in a t-shirt and shorts, which you would not expect in a 1-star Michelin resto. Waiter was just recommending to have a white wine since we were having fish but could not tell which one in particular ...
Restaurant
Madame, Monsieur,
Aimable clientèle,
Nous souhaitons, par le biais de ce commentaire, préciser notre position par rapport à un élément spécifique.
Nous avons été gratifiés d’une étoile au guide Michelin il y a quatre ans de cela et nous en sommes très honorés.
Ceci étant dit, il nous paraît important de préciser que notre volonté a toujours été celle de créer un lieu de bistronomie ouvert à toutes et à tous.
C’est pour cette raison que nous n’exigeons aucun code vestimentaire au sein de notre établissement.
C’est pour cela que notre porte est et sera toujours ouverte à toute personne désireuse de découvrir notre cuisine dans l’ambiance décontractée que nous avons souhaitée et qui fait l’âme de notre restaurant.
Peu nous importe que nos clients soient vêtus en costume trois pièces, en t-shirt ou en shorts.
C’est ça l’esprit Eligo.
Cordialement.
Gabriele Bazzichi

Directeur.

If I opened a restaurant, it would be just like this. Perfect modern setting. Open glass walled kitchen. Menu is the perfect combo between convenience and sophistication.

Delicious food (especially enjoyed the sauces). Very good service, and wine recommendations. Ate here several years ago and had always wanted to come back; although a lot of time had passed, we were not disappointed - it was again another memorable meal.

The food was quite good, well presented and tasty. Service was also good. No complaints, but it is a bit expensive for what you get.

All was good... simply surprised that the waiter didn't know the meaning of the name of the restaurant... weird. He asked his boss and Eligo comes from Latin: make a choice or select what you want.

I am compelled to write this negative review due to the irresponsible behavior of the chief in regards to its customers' health. Indeed, I was glad to see tonka bean ice cream on the menu. Tonka bean has a fantastic flavor but is forbidden in many countries as a food flavouring agent due to its coumarin content (up to 3,5%). An overdose of coumarin has hepatoxic and teratogenic effects and can lead to death. However adequate dosage is what matters and gladly Switzerland legislation doesn't blindly prohibits plants but works on an autocontrol base. That is good as long as producers behavior is competent and responsible which was not the case in this restaurant. I warned twice that the current dosage is dangerously close or above safety recommendations to no avail. The EU limits coumarin to 10mg/l in beverages and of 0,1mg/kg bodyweight for humans. The chief said he uses 1 bean for 1l of icre cream. 1 bean= up to 2g= 70mg coumarin in 1l=0,13mg for a 55kg female. We advised to precautionarily half the dosage.
