The best entrecote restaurant in Geneva

Location is good or bad it depends, near the station with its usual multi ethnic environment. If you are on the terrace I would watch my belongings (like near most stations in the world) But the meat is out of this world. I tried them all in Geneva and this one is by far the best. Two negatives... read more

Amazing food and great service. Avoid the Pasta Prima next door if you dont want to be dissapointed by their rude waiter.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant but came across Café de Paris which has taken it over. It was late and other restaurants were so full so we opted for this choice. We had a lovely outside table and there was a great party atmosphere all around in the area. The food was fine - we all had steaks... More

It takes a lot of guts to have only one item on the menu. But when it's a very tasty green salad with a punchy vinaigrette for starters followed by an entrecote grilled exactly to your preference placed on top of a plateau of an unfathomably delicious butter sauce and home made shoestring fries on the side, then why have...

This restaurant is very close to railwaystation. They offer just beef in butter sauce with fries and green salad. This is so delicious. I can recommend to all visitors of Geneva... And the staff is very firendly!

Really enjoyed this evening with new friends at business dinner. Waiters attention just right, wonderful salad starter and amazing beef fondue got us all guessing what was in the sauce. Yum yum

This is a great place to visit for lunch or dinner. Steak or steak or steak. Not cheap but good quality and efficient service.

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

Then we had... More
