Mandarin Oriental Geneva – Room View

Mandarin Oriental Geneva does not allow dogs – so staying there was not an option since I traveled with my little dog but I was happy to have lunch at La Riviera with a PR manager of Mandarin Oriental as Mandarin Oriental is one of the most luxurious hotel chains in the world.

I was a little skeptical when I read that it is a French restaurant –  French cuisine and vegetarians do not match well, so I checked out the menu before accepting the invitation. Good news: vegetarians have enough options to choose from (vegans probably also will have enough choices) at La Riviera.

So if you wondering where to find good vegetarian food in Geneva La Riviera might be the answer.

La Riviera is located close to Pont du Mont-Blanc (or as I see it at the end of Lake Geneva) – the restaurant is a bit less fancy, a bit less stiff compared to the rest of the hotel. Not surprising, that it is not as expensive as the other restaurants of the hotel – not only because Mandarin Oriental is a top-notch hotel but also because Switzerland is just expensive (well, no secret here) and this restaurant is more affordable.

It is more casual – and I just loved it. We sat outside, next to the street but still roofed.

Starter: We had some tapas and asked to make sure that it was only vegetarian because some tapas actually include animal products (fish).

Main dish: Penne with pesto sauce – this was actually really good and also the portion was decent.

For dessert, I ordered the signature dish: Tropézienne and an espresso. Though it might look heavy it was actually quite soft and light and a perfect finish for that lovely lunch.

Conclusion 

The staff was lovely and friendly and we (including my dog) had a great time and we stayed much longer than I planned in. It would definitely be a place I would love to have lunch again.
