Not impressed. Dissapointed... Anchoiade is clearly out of a tin and does not taste of anchovies.... Burgers where fine, nithing impressive, but service was slow slow slow totally disorganised and ended up being very rude when we asked for our bottle of wine for the third time.. Not going back, there is way better around.

The burgers were nice, but I have tried better in Geneva. The service was a big cold, one of the girls was almost rude. They charged us 1chf per tag water jar, when we asked they said it was for charity.

It seems that every restaurant in Geneva lately claims to have the best hamburgers. Le Calamar makes the claim but doesn't take the prize. While the monthly menu is very entertaining with new takes on toppings, etc., the burger is just your average burger. It just costs more than the other places. Nevertheless, the other items on the menu, notably... More

Don't be turned off by the scary website or the somewhat bizarre way the menu is presented on their website (it's an attempt to be "edgy" I think). This is actually a very unpretentious casual restaurant that has really great burgers. It gets a bit rowdy in the evenings (there is usually a live DJ on weekends) but nothing out... More

This is the sort of place Geneva needs more of - relaxed, not stuffy or snooty, modern food, reasonable price. The burgers are good and along with the fries and salad are a substantial meal. Only a couple of francs more than the take-out burger places for a nicer, sit-down meal.

One of the few places in Geneve that actually serves a relatively decent burger. Forget about the service its always hit and miss not only here but all of Swiss. What I always find bizarre about eateries in Swiss is that they never come back after they serve you food and ask if its ok, and never never return to... More

This has become a regular go to place for us for a relaxed evening out. The burgers are very good and worth a detour, so recommended! Table churn is high and we were served tapas and main course at the same time, which would obviously should have been done separately.

I was surpriced by the burger quality here - better than in Holly Cow and one of the best burgers I've ever tried in my life. The price is ok - 17-20 CHF for a burger with fries and a salad Cocktails are a bit pricy (15-18 franks), but you have few wines and beers which are more affordable It's... More

Went here with friends. The place is popular with locals and ex-pats alike. They do a pretty good burger to boot.
