FISKEBAR – the gourmand and gourmet treat

New Year's Eve Geneva 2019What better excuse to treat yourself to a gourmet meal than to see in the New Year?

Our favourite contemporary Nordic-fusion restaurant in Geneva celebrates seafood with a six-course menu on New Year’s Eve that will delight gourmet and gourmand taste buds.

If you haven’t been to this fine-dining restaurant – you won’t be disappointed. Overlooking the lake, the restaurant is both elegant and casual

The décor reminds of a traditional fish market with its raw kitchen counter and high tables and chairs, while the bar is luxurious, but at the same time very cosy.A great place for pre-dinner drinks.

The focus is high quality fish and seafood and organic and seasonal produce and the New Year’s Eve menu certainly delivers on this promise.

Elegant marble seabass, roasted scampi, rice, caviar, lime zest and turbot with salsifis and black truffle – served one after the other.

Head Chef Benjamin Breton takes you on a journey to the Nordic countries with the salmon confit, the foie gras, eel, cereals, followed by the lobster, carrot, mandarin and the turbot, cabbage, caviar, shellfish. Poultry from Bresse with root vegetables and truffles will delight the true gourmands. The tasting menu is accompanied by a glass of champagne, and the sweet touch of the Fribourg’s Vacherin mousse, and the blueberries, buckwheat conclude the meal.

What to expect: A stylish, gourmet evening fit for kings.
