When the staff at your hotel or Tourist Information Bureau tell you that Le Bain de Paquis is the best place for a fondue - beieve them! Go prepared for rustic surroundings but the most fun you can have even if you don't speak the language very well AND the fondue is absolutely beautiful. The daytime menu is good and... More

If there must be one restaurant to bring a tourist to in Geneva, i would recommend the " Buvette des Bains des Paquis ". First of all, you'll never eat that close to the Geneva lake than at the "BBP". It's so close, you may have to pay attention on how much you drink ;) ! Then, the food is... More

One of my favorite places in Geneva! It is in many regards special: It is the only restaurant on the lake, it is fairly cheap for Geneva, it is managed by some kind of association, and it is probably the only place in town where you go to the sauna, swim in the lake, and eat a fondue :) The...

This is really cool bar/restaurant. It is located on shore of the lake on pier in area of old spa. During our stay we went there every day for lunch – there are always few delicious and cheap options you can choose from. We loved you can take you food out to pier, open wine and relax. My favourite place... More

This restaurant is special because it's in a special place (the lake shore), because it's managed by a non profit association and because the food is great. In summer I love the greek salad, in winter you can have a great fondue. It's self service and can be quite crowded when the sun shines, but it's worth all the wait.

Fabulous basic food, plat du jour 14sfr. delicious home made soup and various dishes. They do cheese fondue in the evening, have been told it's very good. Self service but very efficient and quick. We ate outside in December, or there is a room with a wood burner, very cosy. One of the best views in Geneva, les bains des... More

Winter days are here.. This means eating Fondue should not a miss... I've tasted several fondue in Geneva and each have their own twist.. Here you can taste a more garlic flavored Fondue which i loved.. Ambience is so inviting.. Price is pocket friendly... So if you happen to crave for a Fondue during winter time. This resto is just...

Having lunch outdoor in November is quite exceptionally, autumn is not wat it used to be, but you don't hear me complaining. La Buvette du Bain de Paquis is a lovely place to have a quick basic lunch sitting outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Concept is self service, but you are served very quick and the food is decent. the... More
