Omnibus Vade Mecum

If you haven’t been to the Omnibus before, you would probably walk by. Hidden behind its' unpretentious exterior, however, lies an delectable surprise. The restaurant is ‘delicious’ and I am not only talking about the food. It’s traditional with a twist. Classic with a clash. Idiosyncratic, quirky... read more

Shared a quiet lunch with a friend and enjoyed everything immensely. The plat du jour consisting of organic trout and scallops....divine!! My friend enjoyed the fois gras accompanied with the most sumptuous jelly and bread sticks. The wait staff was very friendly and kind. This is a small, cozy place. When you enter you'll be in the bar area. The... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Geneva. A great combination of French cuisine (foie gras, salads, fish, game meats) and more mainstream fare like burgers. I love their tartares, the 'Campagnard' in particular, which comes with garlic bread topped with bacon. Be sure to get a table on their riverside terrace.

The place in may 2014 seemed to be a bit quiet; with only few tables occupied on a Tuesday night. the food is of high quality and very nicely served; though once with a group of 8 ppl they run out of uniform plates and glasses (a friendly comment). Service is very french alike so once you order wine don't... More

Upon entering L'Omnibus, we were a bit thrown off by the ambience. We had booked the restaurant with a Smartbox coupon, so we were expecting a place that looked nicer. But it turns out that to get to the restaurant, you have to pass through the bar. And so we were pleasantly surprised when we were seated. The dining area... More

The food is nice, even if nothing spectacular. The place in summer offers a terrace along the river that can be fresh during hot days . . .

Not much to say except that the service was excellent, friendly and fast; the food was really good and you can sit outside by the river. I would recommend it to my friends and will return there myself.

Recommended by native Genevois, we went in the early evening before a show at the nearby Batiment des Forces Motrices( BFM - an old decommissioned and converted Geneva power plant). Friendly welcome for two unbooked people and we were put in the front room with the bar. Try asking for the back rooms which seemed less draughty and more cheery... More
