I am delighted to include reviews about some of these Geneva restaurants by our Guest Blogger, Celine Conejos.
A Philippine Diplomat's wife, Celine Conejos is a permanent resident of Makati, although she currently lives in Geneva, Switzerland. She reviews hotel, restaurant, and attraction sites in TripAdvisor under the name of Coellum. She says this of herself:
"My father was very fond of traveling. He passed on his wanderlust to me. I enjoy traveling and planning for my trips. People close to me benefit from this. My children have many good memories of happy vacations together. At present, I live in Geneva temporarily. Being in the heart of Europe gives me many opportunities to see new places."
The following reviews first appeared in TripAdvisor and are reprinted with Celine Conejos' permission. I look forward to posting more of her reviews about other places in my blog. Thanks to Celine Conejos for sharing her reviews.
La Faviola - 4 Stars
Rue Jean Calvin 15, Geneve, Geneva 1204, Switzerland
Each time I have eaten here, I have enjoyed both the favors and the presentation of my food. It is a rather pricy place though.
Notre Dame Basilica - 3 Stars
3, rue Argand, Geneva 1201, Switzerland
This church is just across the Gare Cornavin. It is a lovely church. The restoration was completed about a year ago. On Sunday evenings there is an English mass.
What is sad about this place is that there are undesirable looking people who like to hang out here. Once when I visited at noon, a priest was trying to tell a dirty looking person to move away from the altar. It looked like he was going to disturb the Blessed Sacrament. I left hurriedly. I wonder how the parish can solve this situation.
Rue du Rhone - 3 Stars
This is the Fifth Avenue of Geneva. All the expensive shops are here. I like to get off at the tram at Belair and make my way to Rue du Rhone from there. Of interest to me as a Filipino is a little plaque not far from the tram stop, indicating that our national hero, Jose Rizal, once stayed at a pension on this spot. Then, I continue to window shop, looking at the expensive jewelry displayed in store after store. Cartier is here. Boucherer, the official distributor of Rolex can be found here. The designer labels are here too. You will see Prada, Louis Vitton, Chanel, Celine and many more. For lesser mortals, it is a nice street for window shopping.
Jardin Anglais - 3 Stars
There are many pickpockets here. My husband says that someone tried to steal his wallet while he was here. It is wise to be alert while visiting the garden.
You have not seen Geneva if you have not seen the Jet d'Eau.
