French halal gastronomy to tempt diners at Geneva’s Michelin-star restaurant, Le Chat-Botté

Le Chat-Botté’s recent relaunch in Hotel Beau-Rivage promises to offer a unique and memorable culinary moment for those headed to Geneva, the gourmet capital of Switzerland. With its complete renovation, guests are in for a feast that will delight the eyes and the heart, as well as the taste buds.

Awarded one Michelin star and rated 18/20 in Gault & Millau, the restaurant is the work of the skillful chef Dominique Gauthier and his partner Vincent Debergé.

Bathed in soft and intimate lighting, the restaurant spreads over a double library-lounge which sets the tone from the moment you step inside; sofas and armchairs display the timeless, yet comfortable, elegance of a state-of-the-art Rolls Royce. The restaurant is ideally situated with views overlooking Lake Geneva and its famous fountain, with the dramatic Mont Blanc just beyond – there are a few better spots for a romantic meal or to celebrate special occasions.

The restaurant serves contemporary and creative French cuisine incorporating the flavors and colors of the Mediterranean Sea.

Get an exclusive first-hand look at the kitchen and its team at the completely redone Chef’s Table, set right in the centre of Beau-Rivage’s impressive kitchen. Up to eight diners can enjoy a surprise Chef’s menu. Guests who wish to learn Gauthier’s cooking secrets can sign up for haute de gamme cooking classes and work directly with him, to create a gourmet meal served at the Chef’s Table. His passion, love for food and dedication to share his creations has made his cooking classes so popular that they are now being offered to larger groups.

Dubbed Chef of the Future in 2005 by the Académie Internationale de la Gastronomie, Chef of the Year in 2009, awarded 18/20 in the Gault & Millaut, French chef Gauthier is the pride of Beau-Rivage.

Welcoming of the Arab culture, Beau-Rivage offers tailor-made services to exceed the expectations of foreign guests. A halal menu is available and the terrace is the perfect place to savor it, overlooking the lake’s picturesque views. The hotel also offers Shisha of various flavors to be enjoyed on the terraces, a Qibla indicator and a Quran is available in every hotel room.
