My husband is from Geneva. He is 63 years old and his father used to take him to this restaurant when he was a little boy. We think the restaurant has been around for 85 years. How many restaurants can say that? And many of the servers have been there for decades. They have a great formula - only one... More

Best entrecôte in Geneva - always busy, always good. Being not an easy one on meat I have been in Café de Paris more than once and will go back again.

It is not cheap, but they do a mean steak and frites. Only item on the menu, as far as I can recall. Great atmosphere, but gets very busy in the evenings and they would not accept reservations.

menu is how do you want your steak cooked, rare, medium or well cooked, steaks were cooked to perfection and service was quick and friendly. Cost was reasonable for central Geneva.

I manage to make it here every time I am in Geneva. The entrecôte is a classic, delicious and the quality never changes. Great place for non-business talk, even a tourist date :-). Prices increase all the time, but worth the splurge sometimes.. 50CHF+

Had to go here as I love steak, unfortunately I found myself comparing it with the Entrecôte in Toulouse. Salad nice but lacks the finesse of the Entrecôte, chips nice but not as nice as the Entrecôte too many little bits in my portion. Steak was good but I prefer the thicker steak very thinly sliced of the Entrecôte. And... More

when you visit Geneve stop at Cafe de Paris. Only one choice : Steak , salad and french fries , but all of this cooked with the Cafe de París sauce. Second to none ! Fixed reasonable price (tips are not allowed) , make sure you visit the classic restaurant.
