Dining options: Reservations
Neighborhood: Cité
Description: It is a straight forward inexpensive restaurant in the old city of Geneva with a general European cuisine, mixed with a few Balkan dishes. It does a good rosti. But the general food enjoyment is let down by a surly and rude waiter.

Yes the location is great and the inside charming.
The food is good but just way overpriced for what they deliver.
My steak tartare at CHF 34 came with grilled white baguette as toasts and packed butter.
No salad or fries.
Shame because dished were not bad.
Service was friendly.

Your röstis are the best, so why try and follow the burger trend?? We’ve been eating here for years and got tempted by your tenderloin burgers, but they don’t deserve to be on the menu! The pepper sauce is overwhelming, the steak is not cut fine enough and turns out to be chewy and tough; the overall burger was mediocre and unfortunately the röstis in the burger adds no value because there are too many different tastes and textures. However, the buns were great...but I still think you should drop the burgers and avoid having disappointed clients. The service was very good, but as usual the owner is not very friendly and doesn’t seem to enjoy running this place...one last thing, skip dessert, particularly the cheesecake which is bland and one of the worst I’ve had!

Seriously. Super delicious food. A little mandatory (but not really) French. Great space and ambience. Also - strong drinks. Could not ask for more.

Nice, cozy atmosphere with great service, located in the old town. A great stop for lunch or diner, especially to sample local food and wine.
