Service: friendly, helpful, good with children, and very speedy (hence the title of this review) Food: chicken and chips - everyone's favourite! Wine: I recommend the Genevan Rosé - excellent. Finally: it's not expensive. Recommended!

I've eaten at this restaurant many many times for lunch and dinner. It serves a couple of other things but it is a chicken a chips (wedges actually) restaurant. This is what they do best and what you go there for. It's consistent, always pretty busy but you never have to wait too long for a table at the busiest... More

Nice and always tasty chicken with French fries and salads. Very affordable meal price and always easy to order LoL :-). Unusually cheap for Geneva even for dinner , it's a no thrill menu but worst a try from time to time with friends or looking for budget dinner or lunch anytime.

It is a nice place to have quick lunch. Half a chicken, salad and fries - sometimes all you need before you continue exploring downtown Geneva.:)

Had dinner 2-3 times in one trip at this place. Great food particularly the chicken preparations are to die for. Very affordable for Geneva standards. Lunch or dinner they are always flocked with people given their great food so you may have to wait a bit for your food to be served

In Geneva, it can be difficult to find restaurants open outside of traditional meal times (not counting fast food joints) so it is nice to find a place that keeps its kitchen open throughout the day. Chez ma Cousine is known by all Genevans as a nice relaxed place to eat without hurting your expenses too much. Their famed dish... More

Chicken and chips with salad for 15 CHF (£10). Whats not to like.. + Wine you can afford.. Great staff. Always busy. Avoid Friday and Saturday nights if you don't like queuing. They have now opened another branch across the river nearer to Gare Cornavin (The Main Train Station).

We just wandered upon "Chez ma Cousine" on a sleepy Weds night. It was mobbed when all the restaurants in the area were very subdued. The choices are limited to Roasted Half Chicken or several salads but for good reason. The food came out within minutes of ordering. We choose what seem to be the specialty of the Half Chicken...

This place is great if you are hungry and don't want to spend too much. Their main dish is a half roasted chicken with provencale chips and salad, just gorgeous, simple and very tasty. it gets very full but I was lucky to be there earlier than most people and ate very well and at my pace. The service is... More
