Restaurant Edelweiss is a secret restaurant in Geneva that not many of its residents know about. It is as secretly kept as a speakeasy – if you exclude the fact that tourists are very aware of this hidden gem. In fact, it is the main restaurant of Hotel Edelweiss Manotel which is located in the quirky area of Paquis.
You live or are passing by Geneva and feel like visiting Swiss mountains? You do not need to go too far! In fact, mountains are coming to you with Edelweiss and its beautiful Swiss-chalet style restaurant. Yes, this place is touristy but is it really a problem if it is to have a unique experience?
The restaurant’s atmosphere is unique and beautiful. Everything is made to make you feel like somewhere far away from Geneva, in Swiss mountains. The decor is absolutely outstanding and herdsmen are also present to entertain you with music made of local instruments.
As when you visit Swiss mountains, you must have authentic Swiss food, such as fondue and dried beef. The fondue is one of the best in Geneva and portions are very big. Yet, this comes at a price. It is most probably one of the most expensive Swiss restaurants you can find in town but the experience is definitely worth it. As you can see it from the status of our table in the picture below, we really enjoyed the fondues. We had ordered a mushroom fondue and Edelweiss fondue.
Overall, we went all in fondue Swiss style and had a great evening. I highly recommend Restaurant Edelweiss for a delicious dinner and fun evening.
