En arrivant sur la place Longemalle, à part le mobilier urbain flambant neuf, on se laisse en général vite frapper par la devanture d’inspiration néogothique de l’hôtel La Cigogne et son restaurant du même nom. Construit au début du XXe siècle, l’intérieur de ce bâtiment résolument art-déco déploie des vitraux fleuris incisés dans un revêtement acajou. Quand les modernistes de la fin du XIXe ont eût fini d’aplanir les remparts de la ville, un passage plus marqué a commencé à colorer la ville. En particulier le quartier des rues-basses avec la place Longemalle, donnant anciennement sur un port de commerce peu ragoûtant, qui a vu une de ses bâtisses d’habitation se muer en palais romantique. Revenons à nos barigoules et autre mousselines. Le service est très attentionné avec le (devenu trop rare) service sur guéridon, avec bien sûr découpe à table, pour cette cuisine traditionnelle française racée.

Le chef, Nicolas Pasquier, a connu quelques itérations fructueuses à Paris avant de se décider à descendre sur Genève. C’est à l’Auberge du Lion d’Or, sous les ordres d’Henri Large, qu’il entre dans les assiettes genevoises, avant de prendre les rênes de La Cigogne. Il nous propose une carte résolument tournée vers le large avec du rouget, du cabillaud ou encore du turbot dans une tradition de carte courte.

INSIDER tip

Un moment d’aparté et singulier au centre ville à savourer dans un cadre néo-gothique magique !

    A very nice meal, well served. We especially appreciated the imagination of the chef in presenting the food on the plate. I like also the use of Coravin to serve very expensive wine by the glass. Suggest to extend this to medium expensive wines.

    Delicious and beautiful dishes, a delight from start to finish. This restaurant serves Michelin starred food but also more casual informal dishes such as club sandwiches. Excellent service.

    It’s The cuisine is excellent and so is the service . The wine collection is good . The French and Swiss collections are at least good . The reason why I would say it falls short is the price which is higher than expected when compared to other restaurants which have similar offerings . True this is Geneva and things are pricier here but overall I did feel that the money paid was somewhat higher , especially for the wine .

    I appreciated the service and the food. We took the Menu and each plate was well prepared and presented. The ingredients used are from the season and the fish was fresh and tasty. Excellent desserts. Overall a very good experience.

    Wine prices are extremely high. It is not acceptable. The desert was too sweet and creamy this killing the taste.

    Fabulous place, warm atmosphere, discrete. Excellent food, interesting without being over the top. Great for business lunches, great for a meal with friends in the evening. Welcoming staff. I can't think of a single thing bad to say about the place, it's all good!

    Market menu delicious and reasonably priced for Geneva. Excellent Swiss wines by the glass. Space is small but well appointed. Attentive and professional service.
