Terrasse le Paradis: “Gorgeous, colorful terrace”

I enjoyed a drink on this beautiful terrace on a lovely spring day with temperatures well above 25 degrees. This terrace is very aptly named: the colorful beach chairs and umbrellas at the bank of the river Rhône instantaneously bring you into the holiday mood. Since I didn’t order food, I can’t commend on that. I did try the house specialty though: a refreshing glass of citronnade. I found my visit very relaxing and enjoyed watching the water and the people nearby from my beach chair.

Tuk Thai Urban Kitchen: “Not so great thai food”

It is always surprising to me that in Asia you can have excellent fast food at airports, whereas in Europe they try selling Asian foods, but hardly succeed in making them taste like the original. Granted TUK is a street food style restaurants with ready-made wok dishes. But I’ve had lots of street food which I enjoyed very much. I ordered the pad thai, which sadly turned out to be a mistake. Should have gone for the curry. The pad thai only vaguely resembled this popular Asian dish. The noodles were overcooked and not warm enough. A very sad dish and way too expensive for this disappointment.

Gelato Mania: “Lots of flavors”

Other reviews said Gelato Mania offers the best ice cream in Geneva, but since this was the only ice cream shop I tried during my stay in Geneva, I can’t compare. The ice cream was nice enough though, decent quality and lots of different flavors to choose from. I went for cinnamon and dark chocolate, both flavors were very good. I paid 5 francs for my ice cream, which I consider value for money, because the ice cream is clearly home made.
