Fodor's Review

The hilltop village of Cologny is Geneva's Beverly Hills with a view, and this sleek, sophisticated spot takes full advantage of its real estate. Burnished-silk walls and picture windows frame the sun setting over the lake and Jura Mountains in the main dining room, and the second-floor lounge-bar looks south toward the city. Strategically placed orchids soften the enormous portrait in the lobby and the shaded outdoor patio-terrace floats under a blue sky and above the herb garden. Seasonal cuisine by local celebrity-chefs Gilles Dupont and Tommy Byrne is modern, light, full of Asian accents, and artfully presented. The bistro next door shares the restaurant's kitchen, but not its prices.
