Hello, dears!

Welcome back to the blog! A lot of you have asked me to give you some ideas of where 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!


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 that with the caramelized chicken and the beef. If you still have room for dessert you can always have the one we chose, the riz au lait with caramel, amazing!

Neighbourhood: Bains

What we love: The food and atmosphere.
We loved the least: It was perfect.

Il Mirtillo.

If you really want to take your partner to a place he or she has never heard of before (maybe 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 which we had yesterday and were TDF!

Neighbourhood: Vessy

What we love:  The unique location,  the quality of the food.
We loved the least:  It is more expensive than your average Italian, but worth it!

Izumi – Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues.

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.

Neighbourhood: Quai du Mont Blanc.

What we love: The perfection of the food and the service.
We loved the least:  … there are two services, so you have to choose one slot and well, it kills a little of the romanticism.

Cinquème Jour.

I have shared with you my love and admiration for this place! I haven’t 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!

Neighbourhood: Eaux-Vives

What we love: The cooking skills and unique concept.
We loved the least:  It is not a 1:1 restaurant to be face to face and hold hands, but it is more about enjoying the culinary experience.
