To call this a tapas bar is not really fair as in Geneva this often means a few strips of cheap salami and a chunk of unidentifiable cheese. It also doesn’t do justice to Michelin-starred French chef Yoann Caloué’s efforts to extend their own exquisite tapas menu to include world-class restaurant sharing plates.
This means we are a bit more selective with the kind of company we invite along for the night – only the ones we trust not to scoff the entire content of a sharing plate before we had a chance to take our second sip of vin rouge. We may have mentioned this before, but the breaded oxtail and tartare sauce melts in your mouth – a delicacy well-worth trying, if you’re not familiar with it. The octopus and artichoke plate is good too.
For the more conservative appetites, you can’t go wrong with a succulent burger and chips and some Iberian chorizo and calamaretti.
Vegetarians are well catered for and we liked the arancini rice balls with mozzarella and tomato or opt for the potatoes with melted Vacherin, your own little mini-raclette.
