The place in the center of the old town is very cozy! Plus great chicken, tasty potatoes-simple dishes, but the atmosphere there make it fantastic for a dinner with friends!

If you are a chicken lover - that's a place for you. Super cozy, in the old town of Geneva, theirs specialty is grilled chicken with grilled potato and salad - and that's one of the best grilled chickens in Gva, i swear. Unfortunately, the menu is tiny and apart from the chicken there are also 3 or 4 salads... More

We had a stopover in Geneva on our wat from Milan to Paris and came across this restaurant. The food was reasonably priced, by Geneva standards, and looked appertising so we came back after a walk. The food was great, the service friendly and prompt. Definitely go there if you like chicken as tin reality this is pretty well all... More

It can be pretty hard to find good food at a decent price in Geneva, but this place was perfect. Cute place with a terrasse, right in the Old Town. Simple menu but good quality. Half a chicken + potatoes + nice salad and drinks came up to 35chf for two. Pretty good deal!

Very good food, never miss the special sauce they have.. Their soup is brilliant and in Petit saconnex branch they offer rice as a side dish which is a plus.

The chicken was tasty, the staff was quick and friendly. The children menu was good, and the price fare. While waiting the food, Kids are drawing at the table.

The two of us stopped here for a light dinner. They had the special 1/2 chicken with fries and a salad. When we observed the quantity of the dinner on neighboring tables, we decided there is no way we can each finish the enormous dinner. When we told our waiter we will be sharing the 1/2 chicken dinner that came... More

I highly recommend dining at Chez Ma Cousine! The food is simple but delicious - they definitely ascribe to the mantra "do one thing and do it well." Be sure to get the restaurant's sauce with the chicken (it's 3 francs extra and well worth it). The restaurant itself is brightly decorated in a wonderful location right off the Bourg... More

Best chicken dinner. Simple, but very good. The gravy is a must. Reasonably priced too. Attentive wait staff, they speak English which helps sometimes.
