A Dinner at… L’Equinoxe

December 01, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

In the centre of Carouge is this little inconspicuous café/bistro, which leaves you feeling quite uninspired when walking past. After reading reviews online, however, I decided that I would give L’Equinoxe a shot.

An Evening At… Qu’Importe!

August 08, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

In Geneva we are very spoilt when it comes to choices of bars. There are some wonderful places scattered over the city, however one of my favourite areas to head to is Carouge. This quaint part of the city hosts a number of great bars and restaurants, including this week’s choice: Qu’Importe. Qu’Importe is situated on the main route through Carouge, making it an easy location when giving directions to your group! I decided to meet friends here for a few drinks and a bite to eat on a Thursday evening… Qu’Importe has a wonderful outdoor terrace at the front of the bar with numerous seating options. Due to the glorious summer weather we have been experiencing recently, the terrace area has been filling up quite quickly, so it is advised to arrive early should you wish to sit outside. My group and I arrived at 7:30pm and the terrace was already full, so we had no option but to sit inside. Although we would have preferred to spend the evening outside, the main bar area in Qu’Importe is definitely not a disappointment! The bar has a very cosy and rustic atmosphere, with warm woods and soft lighting. During the summer, they also open […]

Onneca at Terroirific

Terroirific Wine Bar, Cornavin

March 30, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

Return to the earth at Terroirific, recently opened wine and tapas bar in the heart of Geneva. “Terroir” means soil or land and is one of those French expressions that are so hard to translate, yet, when two foreigners use the word Terroir, you see a knowing look in their eyes meaning “yes, I too have experienced that, tasted it and loved it”. Wines, cheese, meats and any other produce “du terroir” have been created following a long, local tradition of using an in-depth knowledge of the land of a particular region to harness its virtues and produce unique products that reflect the landscapes, light, scents, lives and people of a region; products that come from a land that has been observed, explored and respected by those who live and depend on its prosperity, and in return nurture it. People who love and value their land which is at the mercy of the natural elements and beyond man’s control. Partners in wine, Onneca and Julio, are passionate in their artistic and innovative approach to promoting artisanal wine. It is in their blood. Julio’s homeland is the Douro region in northern Portugal, where his family have not only maintained vineyards, but […]
