They do take reservations now!

Like everyone says, this is a one-item menu, but why fix what isn't broken, right? They call them sirloin strips, but looks more like flank steak, but anyway you call it, this is a winning concept. The dijon-butter sauce/topping the meat comes in, as they lay it on the small réchaud before you, is... read more

I first visited this restaurant more than 15 years ago. The person who introduced me told me that i will be bringing people here to introduce them the uniqueness of this place. Just one item on the menu and that is steak. The question is how do you want yours cooked? Small, tasty salad to start with followed by the... More

Although this restaurant is famous with the sauce that they invented, it is quite disappointing that the quality of food is not best among its peers. There are definitely better places to have entrecote with this sauce in Geneva. The service is terrible. They also offer a poor list of wine.

I had my first experience with "Cafe de Paris" in set ember of 2003. I remember the place with a smile, good service, good food, good atmosphere. In 2016 the "Cafe de Paris" is not the same, to expensive for the service. The restaurant is old, the service and ambient are bad.... the meat is not bad but.... is not... More

Lucky to get in on a very busy evening. Very simple menu with a deliciously prepared beef, salad and french fries. Love those fries.

This place is huge on their steak, and that is the only thing on the menu. If you love steak, this is your spot. They rave about their really old recipe. Supposed to be one of the best spots in town.

Well the entrecôte is good but the welcome and service were unfriendly and poor. The fries were awful and the sauce not good. Cramped and rushed. Overall, not a place I would wish to visit again. Not sure why it is so popular - maybe because it's so close to the railway station?

We went to the Cafe de Paris for lunch on a Saturday, as I'd gone along, with my husband, who had gone to Geneva for work. I won't talk about it being expensive, because my husband has been visiting Geneva for 25 years; and it goes with the territory, in our opinion! We went in - it was really crowded;... More
