We are a diverse and inclusive community comprised of refugees, former refugees, immigrants and locals from Geneva and Switzerland at large.

We take pride in saying that we help refugees and asylum seekers integrate into the fabric of Geneva’s society, reach economic independence, contribute to the local economic growth and create a new home.

Through our delicious and diverse food, guests can discover and appreciate other cultures and be part of a movement that value and promote cultural diversity.



Both a training restaurant and a social enterprise, Cuisine Lab offers not only services that are traditional of the restaurant industry but also a program designed to help under-employed refugees achieve economic independence.
