Burgers - Le Richemond

The GVA foodie's quest for the perfect Genevan burger continues with a visit to the Richemond hotel conveniently located by the lake. Overall, the burger is quite good and so is the service. Note: The burger and its toppings are served separately, so if you want some lettuce, pickles, a couple of slices of tomatoes and onions on your burger, be sure to look around your plate before starting your meal!

At this point, there is really only one Greek restaurant in Geneva. In the past there were a couple of others, but they seem to have fallen by the wayside. However, Emilios seems to have done rather well for itself. Located in the lively neighborhood of Plainpalais, the restaurant serves a number of popular Greek dishes including Moussaka, gyros, various Greek salads and starters and of course baklava.

For the most part, Champel is a quiet, residential neighborhood. But it is also home to a number of restaurants, including Pompei, a busy pizzeria. The restaurant's staff are known for their friendly, warm welcome and their signature pizza.
