The menu tends towards classical French fare but with nouveau twists, and it is divided into an 85chf three-course degustation, a 130chf five-course degustation, or á la carte from a wonderfully diverse menu. At our recent dinner, we enjoyed greatly the ravioli of duck confit garnished with foie gras black truffles and served in a chestnut cream broth; a wonderful bruschetta served with lobster; and the filet of beef crusted with mushroom and accompanied by root vegetables and a superb wine sauce.
For a nice dinner out, or for a special treat, I found Buffet de la Gare to be an excellent departure from the typical restaurants in Geneva: the interior is quite modern and not at all crowded, the service was attentive but not annoying, and the menu was thought out well and accommodated all tastes. I will be going back when the weather warms up to enjoy the outdoor terrace - if I don't get back before.
