Three things make a beautiful dinner between friends: location, delicious dishes and perfect service”

( After the book Le Livre du Trois
anonyme du XIV siècle. )

The Domaine de Châteauvieux is located in Peney-Dessus, in the heart of the Geneva vineyards on a spur planted with grapes. It is in fact the farm of the former Château de Peney destroyed by the Genevans of the 16th century.

Today, Châteauvieux is the flagship of Philippe Chevrier. In these historical surroundings, he develops his creative and inspired cuisine, highlighting the most exclusive roducts of the gastronomic tradition.

It is completely natural for the Genevans – less belligerent than their ancestors, other Swiss and visitors to occupy this magnificent place for an unforgettable stay.

The restaurant is closed on Sunday and Mondays.Domaine de Châteauvieux-inter

Our dinner was stupendous, from amuse bouche to desserts. Memorable moments include: Le tartare de noix de coquilles Saint-Jacques mariné au citron vert, gelée d’huîtres ” Belon ” aux herbettes,
pain au beurre d’algues (tartar of scallops and oysters);
L’escalope de foie gras de canard poêlée, chutney de coing, caramel d’épices et baies de sureau (duck foie gras with caramel and spices)
Les jambonnettes de grenouilles sautées, mousseline de pommes de terre ” ratte “, émulsion à la truffe blanche d’Alba ( a superb frog’s leg preparation). A lush pumpkin soup was glorious,, as were Les filets de rouget de roche poêlés, (red mullet).

Le biscuit coulant au chocolat chaud, glace à la vanille de Tahaa 44.-
Le croustillant au miel et figue noire de Turquie poêlée aux épices,
glace au poivre de Tasmanie and L’arlette aux pommes ” Granny Smith ” et safran,glace au caramel et crème à la vanille de ” Bora Bora were ideal conclusions. The sommelier’s selection of Swiss wines (see next section) was idea and service was attentive and personal. One of the great Swiss restaurants in the Geneva area and rates A Major on the Walman Report.

Domaine de Châteauvieux-table

From the moment you arrive in the Domaine de Châteauvieux , your eye will irresistibly be attracted to the bay window opening onto the kitchen. The latter tiled in blue colored lava stone, contrasting with the polished stainless steel of the cupboards. In the centre of this jewel-case, a “piano” (ie. stove) made to measure with an incomparable heating capacity. 4.50 m long, it allows the chefs to give free rein to their creativity. It was conceived by Philippe Chevrier and designed and built to ultra-modern standards.

Between the “Pâtisserie” , the “Chocolaterie” and the main kitchen is located the “Chef’s Table” at the crossroad of temptation between the sweet and the salted

If you have dreamed to sail alongside the skipper of an America’s Cup boat or to attend “Don Giovanni” from the orchestra pit, you must try this unique experience to eat at the “Chef’s Table”.

A reservation is absolutely necessary due to the success of this table.
