The Café Beau-Rivage is situated on the ground floor of the 5-star hotel Beau-Rivage Palace with view on Lake Geneva and the Alps.
Although it is called “café” the traditional restaurant serves typical brasserie style cuisine like tartar, entrecôte or perch fillet. The interior design is very classical with warm colours in red and gold.
I am a huge truffle fan! That’s why it was indispensable for me to order the white truffle pasta as a starter. The sauce was very creamy and there was a fair amount of truffles on top. Simply divine!
As a main course I chose slow-cooked venison with chestnut flour spätzli and winter vegetables – the perfect dish on cold days. It was very nicely presented and it tasted even better than it looked. The best: you get a second serving!
My dessert was a tarte tatin. This typical French dessert is an upside-down pastry in which apples are caramelized in butter and sugar before the tart is baked. You can imagine that it is very heavy, but in winter absolutely enjoyable.
I paid CHF 96.- without beverages.
The five star service and the tasty cuisine justify the price.
I can recommend the Café Beau-Rivage to everyone and will surely be back!
