Auberge du Lion d’Or.

Restaurant in a village. Switzerland,Cologny

Unique in the world: Lake geneva, where you can take a stroll before dining within clear view of the jura.

Thomas Byrne and Gilles Dupont, Maîtres de Maison, present their property:

Imagine a candy-cane balanced atop a scoop of vanilla, which is delicately positioned on a disc of chocolate. Gilles Dupont and Thomas Byrne are both the tightrope walkers and choreographers of gastronomy. Their cuisine at the Auberge du Lion d'or is characterised by superimpositions and refined lines, as harmonious as those of Lake Geneva, where you can take a stroll before dining within clear view of the Jura. There is no limit to the artistic feats of these Chefs.
