7 terraces to Light the Fire

Here’s our selection of local terraces to light the fire & French Kiss. Spread the love! 

Au Vieux Navire, unique

The menu of the restaurant Au Vieux Navire is very short: quality here is much more important than quantity. Enjoy the unpredictable! Magnificent terrace in the village of Buchillon with a Geneva Lake panoramic view.

Au Vieux Navire since 1919

Izumi, near the clouds

On the seventh floor of the luxurious Hôtel des Bergues, Izumi offers one of the best panoramic views in Geneva. You can see the harbour, the Jet d’Eau and the Alps while admiring your date. An idyllic setting mirroring an equally fascinating menu created by chef Mitsuru Tsukada. A Japanese journey tinged with Peruvian flavours: grilled octopus with celery and gorgonzola puree with smoked chilli sauce. This may be worth many French Kisses.

Café de Peney, in the middle of the vineyards

In 1961, M. Edmond Martin discovered a treasure in Peney: more than 3’000 old pieces of bronze, buried in gravel pits, some dating from the Romain Empire. Another treasure is the café de Peney dating back 1900.

Le Floris, over the waves

How about toasting in front of Lake Geneva and show your feelings to your other half? Head to the elegant and spacious terrace of the restaurant Le Floris! Its 180° view of Lake Geneva is the prelude to an equally grandiose culinary moment. Imagined by the Meilleur Ouvrier de France Claude Legras, the menu modernises the classics of French gastronomy. Special mention to the pike soufflé and its coriander spelled. If you are a vegetarian, may we suggest the zucchini stuffed with chanterelles and Marsala potatoes. To die for.

Le Barocco, in the heart of a Museum

Nestled in the Geneva Museum of Art and History, Le Barocco and its hidden terrace are dedicated to art lovers. A la carte, your muse will particularly appreciate the well-known Simmenthal beef steak from the Swiss Alps. Until August 28th, a series of concerts are scheduled to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven. The opportunity to worthily celebrate your love for music.

Les Terrasses du 82, at the top of Eaux-Vives

A romantic stroll in the Eaux-Vives park is bound to whet the appetite. And that’s a good thing since Les Terrasses du 82 has a new concept. Imagined by chef Jérôme Manifacier, the menu is contemporary, among which we recommend turbot sake / shimeji / cabbage and red pepper. An explosion of flavors guaranteed. The icing on the cake: the candid and uncluttered decor which ultimately makes the 82 an ideal place to French Kiss and perhaps say “yes”.
