As previously mentioned in other reviews the Caravelle is the speciality here; a great steak with unlimited fries and a delicious garlic sauce. I honestly haven't tried anything else on the menu but I would recommend this place! I have been a couple of times and the staff are consistently friendly and if it's not too busy they will chat...

Here quite frequently with work colleagues. Consistently good steaks with rather typical high Geneva prices. Slow grumpy service. Salads also recommended if not feeling carnivorous (the steak comes with a small green salad).

Super Caravelle and a carafe of gamay, s'il vous plait. Satisfaction guaranteed! The rule is to eat all your frites and half the steak, then you'll be brought more frites and more of that magical sauce. It's a bit pricey, but that's what you get for excellent steak in Geneva.

Been here several years ago and man o man i missed the sauce. Their specialty is steak (with three different sizes) with the sauce "caravelle". Be sure you make a reservation because theres limited space and it can get crowded easily.

Location is beside a busy roadway but you do not hear any traffic noise. Food is excellent especially the steaks. Dessert is also not to be missed. Service is great. Wine is good.

I have eaten here on several occasions (first time way back in the 1980's) and most recently in May 2013 - The place never disappoints with good service and the best steaks in town at reasonable prices. The restaurant is away from town and very close to the airport - Speciality of the house is the "Caravelle" which is available... More

Tuck behind a supermarket, definitely not a place for a first date, you will find one of the best steaks in Geneva at a moderate price and no frills, not art no deco. I just go there, have the Caravelle steaks (comes in 3 sizes, the small is enough for me), arrives quickly, eat, then go. In the summer it... More

The employees were very kind and thoughtfull although my French is limited and their language skills do not exceed French.. I was shown the steak of 380gr from the grill with a layer of butter-sauce..bloody/rare with a nice crust. Slicing through it without force and the meat melts on your tongue..it made my day!! The hotelroom was simple but good,... More

Good place to have a basic steak with french fries and café de paris butter :) at a correct price. The owner and his son are nice and friendly, but their staff I'm wondering where they get them, not polite ( I'll say border line...)and unbelievable arrogant. You can almost believe that they make you a favor to give you... More

I've been there on several occasions and loved the food. Which was not the case for the service. In this business it's important to be a good service provider, but the place is always full and gives the impression that waiters do not care enough who leaves the place satisfied for both food and service, or what's the feedback people...
