The restaurant The fine-dining Chat-Botté restaurant began as a dream
The dream of Fred Mayer, the 3rd generation in the history of Beau-Rivage Genève, for whom “the best was just good enough” and who, as a seasoned epicurean and visionary himself, was totally convinced of how fine dining could be a major asset in the world of luxury hotels.
And so in 1967 Le Chat-Botté was born, the first hotel restaurant open to the public, and his personal pride. Several leading names in fine dining have held the reins: Michelin-star chefs Lucien Leheu and Louis Outhier, followed by Richard Cressac who handed over the controls in 2001 to Dominique Gauthier. September 2023, after serving as sous-chef for 4 years, Mathieu Croze now takes the helm of the restaurant.
