Fodor's Review

Built in 1827, this sprawling lakeside chalet set amid magnificently manicured public parks comes dramatically into its own in summer. Pink tablecloths and hanging geraniums frame an unobstructed view of Mont Blanc and the glassed-in Orangerie is a rainy-day alternative to the covered terrace. While the wine list is good and the French-accented seasonal cuisine competent, if it's haute gastronomy you're after, don't come here. This place is about location, location, location. An excellent compromise on a nice day is to come for a coffee or a plat du jour at lunch on what they call the "brasserie terrace." The Mouettes Genevoises water taxis dock directly out front.
