Great service, atmosphere and food! Good value for money. Be sure to book as this venue is mostly filled.

Nothing fancy or a bill that requires taking out home equity loans. Just great food. A very warm atmosphere and terrific service. If you're staying at the equally good east west hotel, it is just across the street. Order the local geneva red wine. Terrific!

We had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel, and it was so good we went back the next night. Reservations are advisable. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, with excellent English skills and extensive knowledge of the wine list. The crawfish salad was my favorite appetizer, with just the right acidity and many pieces of tender crawfish,... More

We didn't have a reservation and they accommodated our party of five even though they were very busy. All of the servers were friendly and attentive. The bread is fantastic; it has ham and herbs in it. The perch entree was fantastic and the presentation delightful. It is very cozy. Prices were average for a sit down restaurant in Geneva.

Typical Bouchon Lyonnais with its classics: Andouillette, cassolette d'escargots, Carré d'Agneau, Entrecôte... Friendly and efficient service, Brasserie atmosphere and the need to reserve at night as it is simply full almost everyday. We went there for Lunch and Dinner > same efficiency and quality. For the dessert the Profiteroles are TOP so is the Tarte Tatin. If you are looking... More

Le Boeuf Rouge, is a bistrot in the centre of Geneva, a few steps away from the area of Les Alpes, where a number of hotels are situated, such as the President Wilson, Kempinski, Hotel d'Angleterre, Hotel Edelweiss, Novotel, Hotel Bristol among others. The Atmosphere of the restaurant is that of an old fashioned bistro, the decor of wood panelling... More

Was looking for something close to my hotel and agonised over this or the slightly smarter and more formal restaurant next door. This is a good restaurant decorated in bistro style with a menu to match. Food is good apart from the pudding. I had the tarte tatin which was incredible and the best I have ever had anywhere.

Brasserie style, quite cosy and very much alive. Obviously a popular place as we could see many customers coming in without a reservation forced to leave immediately. The cuisine is great in the pure French traditional style, for instance, the foie gras as the entree is great! Home made of course. The portion are generous: a colleague had the smoked... More
