Average but pricey breakfast: Restaurant Glowing @ Hotel President Wilson (5. May 2019)

The President Wilson is overall a lovely hotel – a bit aged in terms of interior design when it comes to the rooms but if you are lucky you get a nice view onto Lake Geneva making it a rather lovely location. What is a bit surprising is the pricing for the breakfast. For CHF […]

When your search for shisha finally has an end: Al Manzil Café (4. May 2019)

When your search for shisha finally has an end: Al Manzil Café (4. May 2019)

Geneva is a place where you have a lot of people from Northern Africa and the Middle East resulting in a vivid selection of ‘shisha places’. But there is also ‘vivid rip-off’. In the Kempinski, for example, they want between CHF 80.00 to CHF 200.00 for a shisha. Excuse me? I mean, that is just […]

The first time I’m disappointed by ‘Where Chefs Eat’: Restaurant Le Lexique (4. May 2019)

The first time I’m disappointed by ‘Where Chefs Eat’: Restaurant Le Lexique (4. May 2019)

The Le Lexique was a restaurant – and frankly the only one in Geneva – recommended by “Where Chefs Eat“. And it was pretty much the first time ever that I was disappointed by recommendation of that book/ app. I guess the fact that they were almost empty already gave away quite a bit how […]

Tasty Lebanese food selection but average atmosphere: Restaurant Les Parfums de Beyrouth (4. May 2019)

Tasty Lebanese food selection but average atmosphere: Restaurant Les Parfums de Beyrouth (4. May 2019)

The idea was to have something quick for a late lunch and the Les Parfums de Beyourth is pretty much the perfect place for such an endeavor. I went for the “kefta plate with minced meat” (CHF 17.00) which offered all you need for a hearty lunch – however, the meat is quite intense in […]

11. March 2012: Restaurant Le L’Acustre

At first it looked like a touristic place, then again the food was pretty good, and we were back in a touristic place. Short summary: Do not go there unless you pretty much have to! The Restaurant L’Acustre is located close to the Lake Geneva and pretty much the only restaurant which is open on […]

26. June 2011: Brasserie des Halles de L’Île

If you’re looking for a good breakfast buffet in Geneva, I recommend you going to the Brassiere des Halles de L’Île – you can enjoy a large buffet for only CHF 39.00. The dishes are good, the selection is quite big (only the selection of bread is disappointing) and overall, it is definitely a good […]

25. June 2011: Ristorante Pizzeria Da Paolo

The Ristorante Pizzeria Da Paolo is supposed to be the best pizzeria in town – honestly, don’t agree. I decided to have the Pizza of the day which was a pizza with Gorgonzola, Peperoncino, and Salame Picante (CHF 23.00). The pizza was not bad but it was absolutely nothing special. The salami was a bit […]

25. June 2011: FloorTwo Lounge @Grand Hôtel Kempinski

The FloorTwo Lounge in the Grand Hôtel Kempinski is absolutely amazing! The lounge is located in the courtyard of the hotel on the second floor. The atmosphere is just absolutely overwhelming – it is absolutely quiet, the hung curtains create a feeling of cozyness and privacy, when the sun is shining it is just beautiful, […]
