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.

Although the food was average at best, the location on the shaded square was a nice respite from the throngs of old town tourists. The price was, like everything else in Geneva, and Switzerland in general, steep for what you receive. Starting with Swiss cuisine is a bit limiting in itself, but the rosti I had was very oily, and not something I would look forward to again. Service was fine and the beer was cold.

As to the niceties, wonderful location in old Geneva, pretty old world design with 60's 70's caricatures on the walls. It is an glitzy cozy ambiance with a nice deck on the front. The old park that it is located in is absolutely lovely. The food is remarkably good, rosti potatoes and beef filet are especially good. As for the drawbacks, service was spotty and a little disinterested and they were not very busy. Prices are touristy/high. In closing, I am glad I had dinner there but would give another restaurant a chance next time in Geneva.

This is probably the best restaurant in the Geneva old town area with a unique ambiance. They have a small but cosy terrasse in summer, and a fantastic dining room for unforgettable moments during winter. Go for the röstis and the local Geneva’s beef filet. What else ?

Busy at lunchtime I had a bit of a queue to get in, but once in it was worth the wait. Excellent rosti menu, equally decent wine in a cosy environment, glad I made the effort. Service could possibly do with being a touch friendlier though,
