Affordable Old Town Option

Geneva isn’t a cheap city in which to eat, and in the “Old Town”, which appeals so much to tourists, it can be hard to find good value. It was therefore a delight to find Vino Olio. Arriving at 7.15pm on a wet mid-week evening I was relieved that I’d called ahead to reserve a table as I suspect... read more

If it's lunch time and you're in Old Town Geneva, there's this small beautifully decorated restaurant just around the corner of Geneva's old town plaza called VOC, short name for Vino-Oglio-Cafe. The choice of meals, mainly Italian inspired, such as pasta and salads is not extensive but very good. I would recommend the Tagliata - sliced beef sirloin - on... More

The waitress was very rude to us. We live in Geneva and go out a lot, and never have we encountered such a host. We didn't even continue ordering. Just paid for our drinks and left. We went to another restaurant down the street, where we really felt the difference in service. It does make a big difference.

Clearly better than other restaurants around. Food was never a disappointment (although I do usually choose among the large list of salads), and service was good and very friendly. A special thought to the two employees who were very "child friendly" each time we came (although this nice "plus" probably has no link with the management at all). All in... More

This is one of my "secret" little places in Geneva, the pasta and salads are outstanding and the staff is extremely friendly. The wines are also good and I like the fact that it is one of few places that is hardly ever overcrowded. The restaurant is very charming and romantic, and the place feels very special. The only negative... More

went there with some locals, although we were early we were invited in and offered wine to drink. The menu was very varied and the comments from all 3 of us were that we could have had pretty much all the plates on offer. The chef came out as he sensed our difficulties in translating French/Italian and ran through the... More

There is nothing special in this expensive restaurant. They dress the normal macaroni and charge 5 times of a normal restaurant.
