We saw the special online offer and decided to give it a try. It was well worth it. The decor and ambiance was quite nice. The food is fresh and imaginative and appreciate the chef coming out to great the tables. Some dishes could be more simple, like the supreme de vollaile. I liked the courgette flower stuffed with vegetables but felt there was a bit too much going on in the plate. My friend’s tuna tagliata was delicious as was the filet de loup. Overall, the restaurant is a trendy but warm place to spend a couple of hours enjoying good food with your friends.

Food is out of the ordinary, very refined French cuisine. The chef personally passes by the table. Service very friendly and attentive except for the wine refill. Not surw about the bright green polo shirts, sort of does not align with overall ambience. Other than that I can really recommend Le Philantrope and will likely go back.

An excellent restaurant, with friendly, knowledgeable staff. The food was beautifully presented, well cooked, and tasted perfectly summery. The wine went well with both the main, and cheese courses. Will certainly be returning.

We arrived on time and we were immediately seated. The staff were extremely friendly and very efficient and the cuisine was very good although not particularly inspired. One of the few restaurants in Geneva in which the food, staff and environment are all very good. Will be back.

The fish was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were delicious!
The service although courteous was not at the level of the food!
Not much of an ambiance when kids are running free and being noisy in the restaurant at a late dinner hour.
Again, the food was wonderful and that is why I will go back!
