This is Entrecôte'. It is the same as you can get at 6 other places in Geneva. If you want to spend 42 CHF before you even have a glass of wine, then it's ok. The meal is delicious, just not any different from the other 6, and it's not suppose to be, it's Entrecôte ! I guess what I'm... More

So a number of folks had indicated how good this restaurant was, so a number of us went there one night to try it. Basically this is a single item menu place, and the item is a some akin to a strip of steak, cooked on top of a butter type sauce. It is brought to your table still cooking,... More

It's a good steak meat, but I can found same quality with much lesser price in Paris, but maybe it's Geneva, all Swiss cities are expensive.

This place only serves one dish: salad as an entrée, beef with sauce café de Paris accompanied with fries. You have a dessert selection choice. Pros: - There is a reason they only serve one dish, it's because the meat is tender and its sauce is amazing! You'll be wanting to finish it all up with the leftover bread! -... More

Honestly, did not feel it was good value. The service was not attentive. The steak was decent but not spectacular for something that amounted to nearly $70 USD. The frites were not very warm or flavorful. The famous butter was good, if a little salty, but I think the grill wasn't correctly on and the steak wasn't very warm. I... More

It is a one meal place. A steak and chips. Nothing else. The meat is very good, properly cooked and a very tender. The butter gravy is fantastic - one of those secret recipes you will try to repeat at home and it never comes out anywhere near... The service is prompt but not overly friendly. Indeed, feels like Paris...... More

I discovered this restaurant last Sunday lunch. Both the meat and the sauce were nice. The beef was already cut in slices and was very tender. The fries were very thin - not my favorite ones, but it was still ok. The service was very good, and we got the food very quickly. The only issue I would say is... More

This is a traditional rustic restaurant with sublime meat and crispy chips. the room maybe a bit stuffy and cramped but overall a delicious meal. situated near the Cornavin station it is incredibly easy to get to. I loved the taragon sauce that went with the meat.

After more than 50 years entrecôte (steak), butter sauce and french fries are still of the same good qualitiy. Quick service as no other menu available.
