It’s not in the centre of town, and that’s how I discovered the Café Restaurant des Voyageurs originally: I used to work nearby and often had lunch here. The lunch menu was amazingly reasonable by Geneva standards, the food was always excellent, the service extremely friendly and the restaurant perfect in all seasons, with a cosy interior during the cold weather and a spacious, shady terrace on summer days.
I now work on the other side of the lake and unfortunately don’t manage to return as often as I used to. However, each time I do dine here, I discover that none of the good things about this wonderful restaurant have changed, including the family atmosphere of this buzzing, friendly spot. It’s still well worth the slight detour from the city centre.
The wonderful thing about this restaurant is that it looks like an ordinary Geneva tavern, but the presentation, range and taste of the food will please any gourmet. I love to start my meal with the fish soup, accompanied by a delicious, homemade rouille sauce and croutons. After that, the choice is always difficult, simply because all the dishes are excellent! Overgrown children will find the massive jar of sweets that accompanies the coffees particularly delightful.
Small appetites beware: the portions are very generous! For my part, if what is good is plentiful, then I’m happy – and I’m always happy, on both counts, when I come to this restaurant.
