The perfect place for lunch

In addition of being super nice and accomodating, the food is simple but delicious, and quite fairly priced for Geneva. I had the truffle pasta which I absolutely loved!

We had spent some time walking around Place du Bourg de Four and wanted a break from the cold and a quick drink. There was quite a few on offer so we picked this place as there were a few people inside. The others mainly looked a little cold and uninviting compared to this. It is a lovely little place... More

First attempt here and when looking at the prices on display i assumed i would better opt for the "large portion" supplement (5 francs added to the main's price)... Needless to say I did not have to do that ! I was served a huge bowl that would have easily be enough for 2 well built and hungry males and... More

We used trip advisor and picked this place and we are go glad we did. We arrived at 1330 and missed the lunch crowd so getting a table was no problem. The staff was great, food was fantastic. I had the pesto penne with rocket and ham, yum. My honey had the burata cheese salad and it was great. The... More

Found this place on trip-advisor and tried it as was close by. Giving it 5 stars because it hits all the marks. Service was friendly, quick and with a smile. Atmosphere was quaint, small but cozy. Food was simple, fresh and amazing. Prices were very resonable. Only wish we were staying longer in Geneva so we could eat here again.

A small bar turned into "fast food" past place at lunch time. Prices went up, quality of the food down ( sometime the sauces are really nice, some other time diluted and not very tasty). Always packed with students and workers looking for a cheap-ish eat in the otherwise overpriced old town. My favourite is tapanade and chevre but as... More

Why do I give 5 stars to this restaurant ? - the owner is just amazing, very welcoming and friendly. He "walked" us through the menu and we couldn't decide, everything sounded so tasty.. He recommended the fresh pasta with burrata cheese and a spicy pasta with rocket salad. - the food arrived within 5 (!) mins, taste, plating and... More

We went on Saturday evening about 7 pm. It was quite a hike finding this place. And it was... closed. Quite a disappointment

Le Radar de Poche is a non pretentious gem hidden in the old town of Geneva. It only serves lunch - simple food. From memory, they only have two or three dishes of pasta along with a choice of paninis. We've always gone for the haristo, and have never been disappointed. Consistently delicious. A dish of pasta costs 10 francs,... More

It's simple food: pasta and paninis, but it's good and much cheaper than all other places in the old town. Mostly full with locals at lunch time. It's small, so go early or be prepared to queue. They've got a small terrace, and they're very friendly. Totally recommend this place for a quick, cheap (compared to others), and good lunch!
