I was at this restaurant about four years ago when visiting Geneva on business. The location is on the edge of the old city short walk from the lake district. It is rare to find good value in Geneva as it is it is it is a city better-known for sticker shock when it comes to dining. Che Ma Cousine... More

"Chez ma cousine" is the type of restaurant where you go for an affordable but well cooked and tasty chicken dinner. Nice atmosphere, good service. The one mentioned above is in the old town which is handy too.

Another affordable, fine and filling chicken dinner in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Go for the half chicken, smaller and leaner than rotisserie chickens in the U.S., but plenty for one hungry person. At 15.40 CHF you get a fine simple salad and a HUGE portion of crisp and fresh fried potatoes. Add a Pepsi (4.20... More

This small restaurant is in Old Town in Geneva. For about 15.40 Swiss Francs you can have a small half a chicken with potatoes and a green salad. There are also other chicken salad entrees that are quite good. We ate outside and thought it was a good spot for a reasonable dinner because Geneva is an expensive city. The... More

Staying in Geneva on a budget is always going to be a hard task and restaurants like this are a vital to find if you need to eat out. Half a chicken with potatoes and salad is going to cost you roughly 15 chf so around half the price of anywhere else in the old town and the food is... More

I walked past this restaurant to this afternoon and it really caught my eye. There was a small outside eating area and I was able to look at the menu and actually see the food. It looked very appetising and I decided to return this evening for dinner. The restaurant was quite busy and that is always a good sign.... More

It was nice to take a break from the ultra expensive food in Geneva and just get a decent bite to eat. There are 3 locations in Geneva, 2 take reservations, one does not(this one). They only server chicken, but it was done very well, the potatoes were flavorful. We had a party of 15 so we split up and... More

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
