    Great layout with much space between the tables. Open kitchen and service with attention although they were a little overwhelmed. Great food, lovely deserts.

    Really great experience, from the delicious food with high quality ingredients and very generous portions to the delightful service of the staff (special thanks to Guillaume for his positive approach and jokes :) ). We even got a birthday candle with ice cream and some sweets even if we didn’t order dessert. Would 100% recommend! Really great place!

    I enjoyed the previous visit in June, but the dishes at latest one in September were insipid. There was a heavy Asiatic influence which was not to my taste but doubtless would the Asian customers. It did not seem good value.

    This is one of the best restaurants in Geneva. Every single dish is delicious, fresh and original! Nathalie with her charming attitude makes this place a unique experience that I can only recommend. I thank her and the team for such a great birthday dinner. She even prepared a little surprise at the end!! It was lovely! Definitely we will come back again.

    I went with my mother, who is rarely pleased with any restaurant food, but she was ecstatic about each and every course. It was all delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. We will be back!

    One of the best places in Geneva to eat something else than the traditional perche du lac, tartare or steak. Always surprising dishes prepared with passion and mastery! And, affordable prices!

    We found this restaurant after a search for a neighborhood restaurant which focuses on fresh, seasonal food. We thoroughly enjoyed the vibe, friendly service and sense that locals were eating there. The ceviche was superb. The tart with tomatoes was very creative and delicious. The plats of eggplant and squid were wonderful and filling. Sadly, we didn’t have room for dessert. We will visit again next time we are in town.

    Exquisite wine and one of the best services I have ever had - attentive, pleasant and going that extra mile. Food was also excellent. I hadn't noticed that we had to order main and starter or dessert to have the 20% discount, but we were informed before ordering. They did not have some of the dishes in the menu, but that is fine as everything was really fresh and we should avoid food waste anyway. We had the burrata (the best dish of our meal) and ceviche as starters, duck, porc and eggplant as mains and the pistachio moelleux for dessert. All quite good. Overall just a top notch experience.
