Welcome back to the blog! A lot of you have asked me to give you some ideas to take your beloved one on a romantic date for Valentines day! So, I decided to put together a list of the most romantic restaurants in Geneva, many different budgets and types of food!
However, this list could always be useful for any time of the year, anniversaries, birthdays, etc!
Comment below your most romantic places in Geneva ! I would love to know!
10 Romantic Restaurants in Geneva
1.- Café de la Paix
We went there last week and we loved the place, the atmosphere and the food! Traditional French cuisine with low light and big windows… is there anything more romantic?
We had the Foie gras as a starter and then we followed by the caramelised chicken and the beef. If you still have room for dessert you can always have the dessert which we choose the riz au lait with caramel, amazing!
If you really want to take your partner to a place he or she has never heard before (may yes, maybe no, but it is not super widely known) Il Mirtillo is a perfect escape. Inside of what looks like a house, your have a super cozy restaurant with homemade Italian food.
You have the traditional dishes like Parmigiana and Carbonara; but also unique dishes by day like the Jewish Style artichokes we had yesterday that were TDF!
Why we ♥ : The unique location, the quality of the food.
We love less Ø: It is more expensive than your average Italian, but worth it!
Schedules: Mon- Sat 12 h00 – 14h00 – 19h00 – 22h00 & Sun 12h30 – 14h30 & 19h00 – 22h00 Telephone: +41 (0)022 784 26 26 Address: Route de Veyrier 130, 1234 Vessy Price: aprox 90 CHF pp (depends on the wine you choose)
3.- Izumi – Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues
Neighbourhood: Quai du Mont Blanc
I would recommend this place more during Summer, because the view is simply amazing! But honestly this place is amazing all year long! During colder days you eat inside the library which I believe is ULTRA Romantic!
The cuisine is Japanese and perfectly done… simply delicious and beautiful.
Why we ♥ : The perfection of the food and the service
We love less Ø: … there are two services, so you have to choose one slot and well, it kills a little the romantisim
I have shared with you my love and admiration for this place! I havent been for dinner, but I loved the intimacy with the kitchen and the other guests. It is a big table-kitchen and you can experience your food at the same time!
I would recommend this for a first date, since if there is a lack of conversation or awkward moments you can always comment on the food or chit-chat with the chef!
Why we ♥ : Thecooking skills and unique concept.
We love less Ø: It is not a 1:1 restaurant to be face 2 face and hold hands, but it is more about enjoying the culinary experience.
I love this place because it is a budget-friendly UBER romantic little piece of China in the middle of Quartier des Bains. In the menu you will find a vast selection of Dumplings and teas and … that’s it!
Simple, cozy and delicious, and of course super romantic and intimate.
Why we ♥ : The coziness & uniqueness
We love less Ø: It could take forever to get your food, be patient
Schedules: Mon- Sat 12 h00 – 22h00 Telephone: +41 (0) 079 436 77 18 Address: Rue des Bains 65, 1205 Genève Price: aprox 60CHF pp (depends on the wine you choose)
