the best restaurants in Geneva
Geneva, one of the most cosmopolitan world capitals, opens its doors and invites you to discover its secrets.

There is nothing like a great meal to start your visit on a perfect note.

 

If you arrive during the day or evening, Rooftop 42 provides one of the most beautiful views of Geneva’s harbor. The Japanese fusion cuisine will tantalize your taste buds; beautifully designed plates, high-quality service, and a refined yet relaxed ambiance.

 

After a long travel day, you might want to relax in the timeless embrace of Timothy Oulton. An unusual spot of utmost discretion, this boutique-restaurant-bar transports you into another world as soon as you step inside. Their cocktails and cuisine combine to create an unforgettable evening.

Of if you prefer a cozier spot closer to the water, Arthur’s, the most fashionable restaurant in Geneva, has a welcoming ambiance, both trendy and chic. A drink in your hand, the Rhône below your feet, and the evening has just begun.

In a different kind of atmosphere, in the heart of one of the President Wilson, one of the most beautiful hotels near the harbor, the Glow Bar & Lounge by Michel Roth allows you to start your evening enjoying great views of the lake and the mountains.

 

After your aperitifs, Geneva has an abundance of choices for dinner.

 

In a sleek, vintage setting, La Bottega takes you into the heart of Old World Geneva. This new bastion of contemporary Italian food was born simply to please our taste buds! Discover the new specialties on the menu each week, as the chefs dazzle with creativity. Cuisine with carefully selected ingredients accompanied by a list of fine wines.

Experience a different ambiance in each of these places along Lake Geneva: Bayview, an extremely chic restaurantWindows, or Vertig’o. All three provide the most breathtaking views imaginable as a backdrop for your delicious dinners.

With a different view that is just as beautiful, Rasoi is located on the shores of the Rhône, with a menu featuring the most refined Indian cuisine in Romandy.

If you are looking for a more intimate ambiance, the restaurants at La Réserve Hotel are located in the heart of a private garden. The Loti specializes in French cuisine accompanied by the world’s top wines, while Tse Fung offers the very best in Chinese cuisine. You can dine on different levels of the hotel, with a high terrace that has views of the lake spectacular enough to make your jaw drop. The hotel’s gourmet restaurant serves fine French food, while private salons and poolside location are reserved for Asian cuisine.

 

In marrying music, a fun ambiance, and good food, Le Baroque Restaurant, a hip spot in Geneva, serves everything from aperitifs to dessert with music on the side. The festive ambiance guarantees a good time.

 

Geneva has even more surprises up its sleeve for you!


Among them, Le Domaine de Châteauvieux, located just outside of the city, is THE emblematic chic restaurant of Geneva. It has the most stars and is the major culinary reference in all of Geneva. Chef Philippe Chevrier creates innovative seasonal menus, combining his passion and savoir-faire.

Stay in the Geneva countryside and discover the secluded location of the Auberge d’Onex, a legendary restaurant as picturesque as it is full of flavors in its authentic Italian cuisine. Enjoy incomparable-quality dining in an equally charming ambiance.

Staying in an Italian mood, discover the more contemporary atmosphere at Da Matteo.

Hidden behind the doors of magnificent hotels are some of the best restaurants and their culinary secrets. If you are dreaming of a great piece of beef on the mezzanine at Trilby, Lebanese cuisine facing the lake at Arabesque, or Asian specialties at Eastwest, your dreams can all come true.

 

And about those other surprises Geneva has in store for you…

 

After a marvelous dinner, there are fabulous bars waiting to welcome you. You can’t help but have a great time, from the bartenders at N’vy Bar, who take you on a voyage of the senses with their exceptional cocktails to Leopard, where you will find a warm ambiance with crackling fireplace and a top-shelf whiskey in your hand to help you relax after such a busy day. Or stop by Baroush, where you will want to dance among the hookahs in a Middle Eastern setting.

Le Baroque, where only the best DJs are behind the turntables, your night concludes as you swing your hips to the latest music at this hot spot where all of Geneva gathers for some pretty wild nights.

 

But that’s not all…

After a well-deserved rest, take a walking tour of Geneva to cap off your perfect visit to this amazing city. Start your tour at the Tiffany, one of Geneva’s most unusual hotels, where the sublime restaurant ranges from a brasserie to epicurean delights. Stop by for brunch, lunch, or dinner, and be transported into a colorful Art Nouveau universe.

Continue your promenade at the Cantine des Commerçants, an informal spot with good, simple meals available for lunch or dinner. Next on your culinary tour, enjoy a perfect meal at Coté Cour Jardin, whose reputation is growing day by day. The owner puts his heart and soul into every step, from appetizers to dessert.

Head toward the center of town and enjoy an outstanding combination of steak and wine at Wine & Beef. Located on the Place du Temple, right in the middle of the action, it would be hard to walk through Geneva and not be tempted to stop here.

Are you in the mood for a culinary promenade or want to party like never before? These are the best restaurants in Geneva and the most well known, so reservations are highly recommended to make sure you can get a well-placed table.
