Go Mexican with Taquería Los Cuñados

Since 2017 Geneva’s favourite Mexican restaurant has been busy. In the heart of the bustling Eaux-Vives district, La Taquería is a point of reference that offers authentic, honest cuisine with a thousand flavours. Here, local products and homemade food are the priority (special mention for the homemade Nachos). On the menu: Tacos, Quesadillas, Margaritas and a delectable Tres Leches. You’ll want more! Reservations recommended. The plus: the warm and smiling staff, as well as breathtaking decor, made up of fixtures and fittings imported directly from Mexico. 

Journey to Lebanon with Balila

In the heart of the Rue Basses and only a few steps from the lake sits Balila, within the charming and very plush Hôtel Longemalle. For lunch and dinner, treat yourself to some refreshing and modern Lebanese cuisine in a chic and cosy setting. In summer, enjoy lunch on the balcony overlooking the magnificent Place Longemalle. The menu features subtly jazzed-up traditional oriental recipes, from Hummus to Tabouleh, including Moutabal, Falafels and the delicious Katayef. 

Kakinuma, a must

The discreet Kakinuma will have gourmets drooling… Rue Henri-Blanvalet, Shinya & Sho delight their guests with delicacy and kindness. Their endeavour has been crowned with success for the greatest pleasure of our tastebuds since they opened in 2006. The restaurant honours Japanese gastronomy and its charms, with Wagyu beef, tempura and a sushi and sashimi counter. You can’t get enough of it. Reservations are recommended.

A Nordic experience at Fiskebar

An open kitchen, a passionate chef, signature recipes of Nordic inspiration: welcome to Fiskebar, a unique restaurant nestled within the Ritz-Carlton Hôtel de la Paix, facing Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. Here, Francesca Fucci experiments, charms and enthrals her guests with updated traditional recipes. The menu changes according to market produce and suggestions that combine land with sea with such dishes as Torsk (cod, fermented rhubarb, strawberry), Grisebryst (pork belly, peach, vanilla, aubergine) or Røkt Hjort (smoked deer, watermelon, purslane).

Indian Rasoi in Carouge

Just a few tram stops or pedal strokes from the centre of Geneva, enjoy the peace and quiet of Carouge with its atmosphere conducive to discovery and sharing. Hurry to Rue Jacques Dalphin to chef Kuldeep Rawat’s superb Indian Rasoi. Here you’ll enjoy Tandoori salmon marinated in three mustards and Swiss honey, Samosa with chickpea curry or Roganjosh lamb flavoured with saffron and ginger. The added bonus: there’s a quiet terrace for summer days.

Le Thé, dim sum specialist

This little culinary jewel in the Quartier des Bains is a must when it comes to dim sum and other Chinese delicacies and is a favourite with the locals. Le Thé has only a few tables and is a reference point for its dumplings and gua baos of all kinds. People come here for the authenticity and the typical, gourmet and exotic recipes. The decor? Plants, tea and bamboo for a one-way trip to the Middle Kingdom. lethe

Susuru for ramen

The famous Japanese noodle soups have found an ambassador in Geneva! At Susuru, there’s no messing around with quality, recipes are 100% homemade and use raw produce from the Geneva region. Plus, it’s wonderfully subtle and the aesthetic is appealing.  We love the harmony of flavours and the marriage of textures. The Shoyu, based on chicken broth with soy sauce, and the Spicy Miso are best-sellers.
