Le Chat-Botte

Le Chat Botté restaurant, one of the finest gastronomic venues in the city, will charm its guests with its Mediterranean colours and atmosphere. Within the solid walls of the Beau-Rivage Cellar, there are treasures accumulated over many years. Wine enthusiasts will relish the suggestions of the Sommelier Vincent Debergé. French and contemporary cuisine is skilfully orchestrated by Chef Dominique Gauthier, one Michelin star and 18/20 in Gault et Millau.

This is obviously a great table and we experienced a wonderful evening at Le Chat Botté. All our dishes were perfectly made and presented with a touch of originality, although we had a game menu which probably imposes some constraints on creativity. Products were perfect, the amuse stops original and excellent, service was extremely professional, smiling and with the right light touch of familiarity. Timing of service was perfectly mastered. We indeed would like to taste a menu in which the chef would be able to express his inventivity even more.
Among the few less perfect points: A slight delay at the beginning of the meal: although aperitifs were served quickly, the menu, and especially the wine menu came after a too long time. More importantly, portions were definitely tiny. Not too much for starters that were ok but the main dish was surprisingly small. Obviously you don't come in such restaurant to eat a lot but this was only a 5 course menu (including cheese and dessert) so not gargantuan, a slightly more generous main dish would have been welcome. Second prices are high. Not too much of a surprise in Geneva, and even less in such luxury hotel restaurant, but here menu prices are on the high end. Wines are even worse and are definitely significantly overpriced. The restaurant chose to offer "classical" bread and not fancy little strange breads, which is fine, but the result is only average, a fresh sourdough would be better.
The restaurant itself is classically decorated, and quite pleasant, nothing really remarkable. Dishware is beautiful. Altogether this remained an excellent and pleasant dinner.

Domaine de Chateauvieux

Reviewed By Chambesy - Geneva, Switzerland

We finally found the perfect occasion to go to Domaine de Chateauvieux. We wanted to offer a very special evening to our friends visiting from abroad. Our expectations were totally met! We had an excellent dinner with impeccable service on the Chateauvieux Terrace.
Take your time to drive out to this beautiful part of the canton. Vineyards, rolling hills overlooking the Rhône river, the French alps in the distance. The Terrace is quiet and covered providing some protection against heat and cold.
A series of amuses bouches is served that are totally stunning (see pictures!). You think you order one dish but with three different servings of amuses bouches one starts to feel spoiled. Colours, taste, presentation! Pieces of art for the eye and the mouth.
We ordered four different main dishes and were each totally satisfied (veal, hare, écrevisses, lamb). Served with bread and a dish of butters and oil. The lemon butter was a very pleasant surprise!
The restaurant has a good wine list with decently priced wines. Local and imported wines. We ordered by the glass and were each happy with our choice.
A serving of desert amuses bouches, equally delicious as the salty ones!
Desert beautifully served and very good.
We were impressed by the selection of cheeses. I counted over 30!
Gluten free bread served.
The most wonderful evening!!!

Il Lago at The Four Seasons Hotel

Reviewed By kikPaca - PACA

We chose the restaurant at Les Bergues to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary and did not regret the choice.
Every course was prepared with care and taste, and the service was attentive without being invasive.
The Deserts are worth planning for - so leave enough room. The restaurant had heard it was our wedding anniversary and so brought us an extra desert decorated specially for us/
Memorable!

I had lunch with my business at this lovely bistro in the heart of Vernier Village. We all ordered the pumpkin soup which was the special of the day and the veal cordon-blue special. Tasty and delicious - we will definitely be back for lunch.

La Gioconda

Reviewed By yusuf69 - Yeovil, United Kingdom

The takeaway that thinks it is a restaurant! Understaffed, struggling to keep up with the business it wants, and not interested in the customer experience. Tasteless bland minestrone with overcooked vegetables, lasagne with a scarcity of salmon, and the wrong pizza which was not remedied. Perhaps some basic customer service training and a maitre d' would fix the lamentable service.

Chez Nina

Reviewed By indianguy - New Delhi, India

This place is great for a relatively quick business lunch. It has very good pizzas, pasta and a selection of other dishes. Service is quick and friendly. The wine and beer selection is quite good. The proprietress is always around and supervises the service herself.
The prices are moderate. Another very nice thing about this restaurant is the light and airy ambiance with glass on all sides letting in lots of light.

Everything a top Michelin restaurant should be. Superb food, excellent staff, beautiful room. Every course is stunning and the presentation a work of art. Just make sure you've got plenty of appetite so you don't miss and of the course and make it to the out of this world cheese-trolley. Pricing is reasonable too - if you've in Geneva, do not miss it.

On walking in to the Restuarnt we were greeted by the lovely owner, throughout the meal we were looked after very well. The chef is preparing and cooking the food in the restaurant very calmly and amazingly well. Food is fantastic and reasonable which is rare word in this town. Definitely worth a try. The desserts are to die for by the way!

Cafe de la Place

Reviewed By jmgGVA - Geneva, Switzerland

Best restaurant in the area, and worth the trip to Plan-les-Ouates if you are in Geneva. Very sophisticated cuisine with French basis and exotic refreshing touches. Service is warm and precise. Good selection of local wines. Excellent quality / price relationship for Geneva. Just make sure you reserve in advance, more and more people know about this restaurant.
