Possibly the best value meal in Geneva

A surprising find. Located in one of the most attractive areas of Geneva's Old Town, the choice of eating outside on a lovely evening, excellent service, a relaxing setting and a lovely meal for under 30CHF.

We went to Geneva for 3 days to visit our daughter who is working there. This was by far the best place we ate in. The food was very good quality, very generous portions so go hungry. The staff were the friendliest people we met we even had to state to the waitress the extra money was for a tip.... More

Chez Ma Cousine is a great favorite of mine: it offers good fare at unbeatable prices. It offers a chalet-style decor which goes perfectly well with the food. The service is rapid and friendly, and it is THE place to go for the best chicken menu you can get, at less than CHF 15.-- per person! This includes the salad,... More

I've eaten here every time I have visited Geneva... the main reasons being the quality and the price. Geneva is not a cheap place to eat, and when it is cold out or raining and you want something a little more than a baguette then this place is truly perfect! Their 'mainstay' dish is half a chicken with wedges and... More

Seemed to be a local institution. Tightly packed, but quick turnover. Good chicken. Some salads. food comes out pretty quickly. Great value.

Could be the best value in Geneva. Juicy rotisserie chicken with great fries. Less than $10 euros for a very large meal. Centrally located. Busy. Great atmosphere. People of all ages. Great for sharing. TIP: Get the gravy. It's well worth it.

One of the more affordable options in this part of town (just below the cathedral) near a famous fountain. We had to wait (for a table for a six) so checked out the other restaurants nearby. By far, the most popular. We enjoyed the marinade sauce on the chicken but the extra sauce you can order was too salty. A... More

I visited this restaurant in March 2015. One of the best things about this restaurant is the price. Compared to the rather expensive restaurants in Geneva, this restaurant is a bargain at around £12 for the meal. There isn't much on the menu, but this will buy you half a chicken, a load of wedges and salad. The food is... More
