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.

We were very hungry and even walked into Mc Dondald's. When we found out a hamburger is 12 euro-we bailed. Luckily we found this restaurant and paid about the same price as a fast food chain. We sat down at a table outside. We ordered beer and 2 chicken entrees with salad and extra fries. (You have to order 1... More

I was browsing Geneva's budget restaurants on the tripadvisor and found this cosy place as the most rated. Due to the great number of ratings (529 references) and the overall positive score I decided to give it a try. Chez Ma Cousine serves simple food, mainly chicken with sides (potato veggies and salad). A friend of mine admitted it to... More

This is without doubt the best restaurant in Geneva if you're after something that's not posh or pretentious and you don't want to spend the earth. I go there every year when I'm in Geneva for work. Geneva is a very expensive place if you want to eat out but Chez Ma Cousine is reasonably-priced with very generous portions, excellent... More
