the restaurant was a bit more than slightly pricey but the meal was ( as always there ) .. suberb !

Three years ago this restaurant was a squat on the outskirts of Geneva, it is now, to my mind, one of the best local restaurants ( with some tough competition )


http://www.restaurant-du-lac-versoix.ch/accueil.html

I had...

Marinade de St Jacques à la Crème de Meaux acidulée et huile de noix
-et-
Souris d’agneau confite au jus
Servie sur un lit de lentilles légèrement parfumées au curry et petits légumes


and Mrs...
Foie gras de canard maison au céleri vinaigrette
Chutney d'ananas et basilic thaï
-et-
Pavé de Bar Sauvage de l'ile d'Yeu aux moules bouchot et beurre blanc
fenouils au Chasselas de Gilly
