This brasserie is one of the most well known restaurant in Geneva since many decades. Many why the owner do not care anymore. The food is average french brasserie, the service distant . Inside it is very noisy as the table are very small and too close to each other. Superior price as it is full most of the time.

Very helpful staff, however you need to reserve if you go on Friday or Saturday night. Best meals to be recommended are the moules (mussels), les escargots (snails) and the oysters. Really good white wines from France. A bit overpriced, but worth a romantic outing.

Lipp is located in the heart of the city, in the old town, a couple streets off the lake. Very convenient spot as can park at the Mont Blanc parking and walk 5 min. The selection of food goes across all tastes and you can have excellent wines from the Swiss Valais for a good price. Have a covered terrace... More

Most enjoyable experience eating outdoors in a quiet enclave in the centre of Geneva. Expensive, as is Geneva in general, but worth it.

Le Tout Geneve meets at Lipp. And not because it is a fashionable place but for the steady quality delivered by chefs, service staff and sommelier. The French brasserie menu is extensive yet the service is prompt. Outdoors dining options in good weather are worth calling ahead for a reservation.

On my visit the weather was great so dining outside was a treat. The location is a tad unusual but hardly a problem - the walls enclosed the space quite well helping to create a very pleasant atmosphere. The food was classic French brasserie style with shellfish, prime cuts of meat, duck, etc, in addition to a good wine list.... More

The staffs are all very professional especially the gentleman who served us is very attentive and... More

Food was well presented and looked nice, but that was as good as it got. We tried the truffle risotto and tuna ceviche to start....couple of small shavings of truffle on top of the risotto, but the risotto itself was bland and had no hint of truffle taste at all. The tuna ceviche was the nicest part of the meal,... More
