What a Great Place!

My wife and I visited Chez Ma Cousine on the recommendation of a waiter at a nearby bar, La Clemence. Its very cheap (for Geneva) and very cheerful! The place was packed! There are only a few meals on the menu and they all include chicken! The chicken is cooked so well and is very tasty. The wine... read more

Non-descript decor -- quite minimal. They have a couple items on the menu. The half-chicken (small) and potatoes dish comes with green salad (free). Open wines also not expensive. Service is very fast (all food is cooked already). Food is tasty, though not outstanding. An honest meal at a good price.

Very tasty chicken served in a nice setting. A small menu but very nice food served quickly. Some staff appeared a little unfriendly as previous reviews.

This places serves simple, decent meals in a good, clean restaurant. We had Chicken Salad meals, and they were both very good, nothing fancy, but very fresh and hearty. The meals are all well priced, and very good value compared to the prices of many other restaurants surrounding this area. Very good value.

Great place for simple but substantial and very affordable lunch if you are around St.Pierre Cathedral. The place is always full during lunch time, and people are queuing outside. It's small and cozy inside with simple but stylish interior. As follows from it's name, it specializes in chicken dishes. And dessert + coffee combo set is amazing and highly recommended!

The rotisserie chicken was good quality, tasty and really enjoyable. The provencale potatoes freshly cooked. Well worth paying an extra CH2.60 for a portion of their special house sauce. This is not haute-cuisine, but a great place for an inexpensive and tasty dinner if chicken and chips is what you feel like eating!

This was by far our cheapest meal in Geneva but it was still quite good! I would highly suggest getting the half-chicken, roasted potatoes and salad and be sure to add on the au jus. You can walk away spending less than 50SF for two people which is a nice change of pace for expensive Geneva. I enjoyed the atmosphere... More

Chez ma Cousine serves rotisserie chicken and a few others things but it's the chicken you come for. Initially, that's all they served. Comes with seasoned fries and salad. Funky interiors. Three locations - in old town, near Manor department store and close to Intercontinental Hotel. Doesn't cost much more than Big Mac menu. Also serve beer and wine. Still... More
