I give high ranks even to deco amd service at this burger food truck because they've thought of everything and their design is divine bovine! the beef is all from the Geneva area (Bernex, others), ground by their butcher and made into fresh patties daily. They are perfectly grilled just pink in the middle. The cheese and sauce are fab, lettuce and onions fresh. Their fries are perfectly cooked, slightly crunchy - but a tad too salty for my taste. (But fries aren't easy in a food truck!) C'est une burger service, vraiment à la américaine en camionnette ! Super burger et frites.

This bar/lounge/resto has a cool ambience with good lighting, art, music and space. The menu is impressive and the service friendly. The food is good, but not yet quite the gourmet American it purports: the burgers were slightly overcooked medium (though we weren't asked how we wanted them cooked). The sauce was good, but would be better not mixed up with shredded lettuce with a burger that comes with rocket (Sex and the City). The coleslaw is the tiny chopped, less julienned kind, very good - not as sweet as the American classic. The sesame buns were very good and slightly crusty.

sleek, clean design and efficient service. the wine list has decent variety. the entrecôte, in two servings, was perfectly cooked, and went well with the house sauce - though I would've preferred it on the side, as it was too much for my taste. the fries were better than most. overall, it's a pretty place, decent food, and open ever day - a plus.

The pretty, open space is inviting and the main dishes are ample, served at lunch with a small tomato mozzarella salad starter. The red wine braised beef Parmentier (shepherd's pie) was perfectly cooked, but lacked a bit of seasoning; its pretty accompanying salad of mixed baby greens and flowers was fresh. The chicken (suprême de volaille) with fresh pasta, herbs and spring vegetables were also cooked well, ample and pretty. Desserts looked pretty, but we didn't order any (too full!) note: we went with the Assiette Genevoise, so I've doubled the food bill.

Nice and calm for a Sunday lunch. The service was also calm and unhurried as others have reported (maybe because there were few people). The food was fresh and good - but just good. We had a simple lunch: one Sichuan duck with noodles and one roast Cantonese duck plate with white rice. The whole duck, crab salad and shumai served at the next table looked great.

Unfortunately, the fries and onion rings were undercooked. The best onion rings dont have thick batter and are large sweet yellow or Vidalia onions. These are more like fritters. I'd try again though!

Lunchtime service, especially drink service before taking the order and time between courses: the wait killed it. A bit pricey for what it is, but generous portions.

The Sichuan was disappointingly unspicy! The Cantonese duck a bit dry.

Cozy cafe with eclectic deco and excellent service. The large choice of crepes makes everyone happy. Brunch available, but the salé et sucré crepe menu remains the best choice.

Despite its lackluster rue de Lausanne location, this resto is a gem among the hotel-hosted options. The fish (I can't remember which one) was perfect: flaky light and flavorful. The courge purée was a perfect side - and all the prettier in it's cast-iron dish. Dessert was amazing: a chocolate and fig tarte. I went with the Assiette Genevoise and can't really remember the bill amount but think it was a great value.

I always find the food fresh, delicious, ample and appealing. Today's plat du jour of cod spinach roulades, fennel mousse and red quinoa was perfect. The steak au beurre maison, fresh grilled and vegetables and rosti were also very nice. Service is not necessarily friendly, but wonderfully efficient - even at the busy lunch hour. I also find it one of Geneva's most beautiful old cafes.
Desserts are prettier than they taste, in general, but not bad. The warm tarte tatin is really good.

Nice presentation; quick, friendly and Attentive service (so rare in Geneva!); very good food. We had perfectly fresh and generous green salads, steak perfectly rare a la plancha - one with shoestring fries, one over a bed of rocket with balsamic and Parmesan, both with basil sauce. En général, on y mange très bien. le service est sympas et efficace.
Basil sauce wad good but slightly too salty and perhaps better served on the side. The moelleux au chocolat plenty chocolatey, but just average (pre-made).

Un italien intimiste et élégant toujours plein à midi, servant une belle cuisine en bord de vieille-ville. Rien que d'y penser, cela donne faim;-) Il est indispensable de réserver car il n'y a qu'une trentaine de couverts, et les banquiers et autres costards-cravates du coin prennent d'assaut la salle. La déco est classique, feutrée; les tables sont très serrées même si le soir je suppose que ce doit être moins le cas. Le service est très professionnel, présent sans être étouffant et plutôt rapide si l'on prend le plat du jour (possibilité de manger l'entrée et le plat en 45min). Un mercredi midi, nous avons pris un excellent vitello tonnato en entrée du jour (fines tranches rondes rosées, sauce légère, juste parfaite, 21.-) et des pâtes fraiches avec une sauce crémée aux chanterelles en plat du jour (très bonnes aussi, 26.-). Le pain est également excellent: il ne manquerait que de l'huile d'olive sur les tables pour mieux en profiter. Des amandes caramélisées peu sucrées accompagnent le café, ce qui permet de terminer sur une note douce même sans desserts. A refaire absolument!

Un bistrot passable ayant servi Jean-Jacques Rousseau en 1730 qui pourrait être tellement mieux avec un peu d'efforts... Un mercredi soir à 20h, on nous laisse choisir notre table: la terrasse surélevée semble agréable (populaire, elle est quasi-pleine) mais on choisit finalement la table à droite de la porte, qui par hasard est celle avec la plaquette rappelant son célèbre client. Ecran télé sans le son en coin de salle, des maquettes de bateaux contre les fenêtres et des cartes postales sur le mur vers le bar: déco à la bonne franquette, pas gênante car visiblement authentique mais pas idéale pour un dîner galant si jamais. Les tables de vieux bois sont cependant bien dressées, avec des serviettes en papier fleuries, très estivales. La carte ne comprenant pas d'entrées, nous prenons les filets de perches "meunières façon Jean-Jacques Rousseau" (autour de 30.- sauf erreur) et une entrecôte de boeuf (250g, 36.-). Les filets de perche sont servis avec une sauce au curry (donc zéro meunière), correcte, et accompagnés d'une salade en entrée et des frites congelées. L'entrecôte est passable, plutôt nerveuse sur les bords, et accompagnée en plus de la salade et des frites par quelques légumes. En bref: cuisine basique. En dessert, le tiramisu n'avait ni alcool ni café et selon le serveur était aromatisé à l'orange: on l'a trouvé mauvais, pas crémeux, et avec un goût sucré de fruit indéfinssable voir industriel. Le patron n'était pas méchant mais pas franchement accueillant, et a poussé un soupir quand nos voisines de table n'ont commandé aucun verre de vin: geste juste insupportable... Une cuisine qui manque d'âme, un cadre passable si on oublie "LA" célèbre table ou la terrasse et un service pas vraiment chaleureux: ça ne nous a pas fait rêver.
