Smart brasserie and wine bar offering a menu of Mediterranean cuisine with an Italian bias.
There’s a buzz about this street corner in the Quartier des Bains, just down the road from busy Plainpalais, and Le Reservoir brings its own sophisticated contribution to the party. Attached to the Café de la Presse and under the same ownership, this smart brasserie and wine bar offers a menu of Mediterranean cuisine with an Italian bias. Tuck into melon and parma ham, tagliolini nero vongole and asparagus risotto, or fish and meat dishes with local flavour, such as fish from Lake Geneva and beef tartar. For dessert, dishes featuring local Gruyère cream crop up alongside Italian classics. Tables spill out of the modern, minimalist dining room on to a terrace the length of the building, while the attached wine bar works well for an informal night of tapas and Swiss wines. Unfortunately Le Reservoir doesn’t win any points for service and it’s a little overpriced, but the food hits the mark on the whole.
