The fix (and only) menu was excellent: Great simple green salad to start Perfectly cooked sirloin steak over a bed of flavored butter and a side of crunchy fresh fries. I always ask for mustard with my steak but this time I didn't even think about it. Very busy and loud environment with a quick turnaround which make sense since... More

I come to Geneva for business about 3 times a year and during each visit I like to have dinner at the Café de Paris at least once. It has a simple menu...steak and frites. The green salad, with oil and vinegar, is always extremely fresh and refreshing. Ordering is simply...how to you want your steak? The steak comes on... More

As much as you must go to Smith & Wollensky for the NY Cut Steack you must visit Cafe de Paris in Geneva and try its world famous entrecotte with its secret sauce ... no kidding, its formula is as secret as the one of CocaCola and you can buy the sauce in butter-like bars to take home.

I have been visiting Cafe de Paris for many years. We were introduced to this set menu restaurant by our family in Switzerland and go back there almost every year, multiple times during our visits to Geneva. A comfortable setting and zero confusion on what to order since they have only a set meal. Salad to begin with topped with... More

I have been going to this restaurant since my childhood, anytime I am in Geneva. Their meat, sauce, salad and fries are delicious . But it is quite expensive. You pay a lot and to feel really full you have to pay even more , but that's Geneva for you!!

In the first place it was open when we needed it and the beef steak was nicely served on a platter that was kept hot by lamps underneath. The setting is not modernistic but comfortable and welcoming

the steak is superb. the fries are tasty and endless. the little green salad is green and leafy. the wine is red and tart. garlic butter in larger quantities than the heart association would permit in a year. and it is served to a crowd buffeted by the cold breeze from a front door opened frequently by diners seeking admittance....
