Where locals go…


Eating out in the city is part of locals’ lifestyle. Long business lunches, meeting friends over a dinner, locals are all about time well spent while delighting their taste buds. Planning to surprise your other half with a special dinner or just looking for a new gourmet experience, here are our recommendations for spots that you shouldn't miss during your stay in Geneva:

Chez Philippe
