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.

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!!!

We have been customers of the Rajpoute for over 18 years.
The father ran an excellent restaurant, and we had wondered what would happen when he handed over his legacy to his son and they moved from Maconnex ..... well we found out.
Appalling service (food took 2hours to come), off-hand and dismissive customer “service”, mediocre food capped off by an unfinished car park/turned quagmire in the rain (now all over the inside of my car).
We will not return, and will take our weekly custom back to Junoon just up the road, where the dining experience is the opposite of that endured at the Rajpoute recently.

To get away from expensive Geneva prices, we visited this establishment. It was delicious! For €13.50 you get a great plate of different foods - chicken, veggies, lamb, rice, etc. Great deal! And they didn't charge for tap water!

A very friendly place just on the Swiss/French border. A wide choice of food, I seem to have the horse when I go there, very good quality meat. They also offer fondues, fish, etc. local wines are available. They have plenty of parking and dining outside also. Would recommend.

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.

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.

One starter was eye-wateringly acid and the other so bland that there was no taste at all. Our main course of filet steak arrived almost charred, although we had ordered rare. The chef doesn't seem to know that meat will continue to cook when placed under the hot plate in the kitchen awaiting service. The steaks were served with a mountain of shrivelled small potatoes (same as those served since eternity at the Pirate in Ferney) and little else.

At Bayview restaurant, guests can savour the unique culinary creations of world-famous chef Michel Roth (MOF and Bocuse d'Or 1991, Taittinger Prize 1985), an international role model for cultivated and creative French culinary art. An impressive wine cellar rounds off the authentic gastronomic offering and completes the absolute sensory experience. This luxury restaurant in Geneva was awarded a Michelin star since 2014 and a grade of 18/20 at Gault-Millau since 2016.
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.

The restaurant does not look very inviting from outside nor is it particularly charming from inside. However, our salads and pasta were good. I had the spaghetti al pesto which were average and my wife had the spaghetti Bolognese which were very tasty. The service is friendly and efficient. They offer outside Seating and are open on Sundays.
