When doing business in Carouge I'm usually in for the Café des Negociants. Quality is very good, Quantity good-very good. Friendly and helpful service. The entrecote is a good choice, saignant of course. Reservation recommended. Closest tram stop is "Armes", line 12, 14 or 18.

This place was ok for a visit a few days ago. Both the food and the service were good although the food was a bit overpriced. Not much atmosphere, but still a good location where you can enjoy company of good friends.

A bistro chic in the heart of Carouge. Nice atmosphere for lunch and a good wine list where you'll find Nicolas bonnet's wine (top winemaker in geneva) and beautiful white burgundy and the cornas from clape! We had a good time there, we'll be back.

In the heart of Carouge which is a stunning village area in Geneva. The waiters have a good sense of humour. Really enjoyed the evening, two menus which had great selection of food. I went for the venison which came with a poached pear in red wine which was amazing, the best venison for a long time. Suggest you book... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Carouge and one of the best in the hole Geneva area. Its food is elegant and very tasty. It is of course known for its moeleux au chocolat which you MUST try even if it is not included in the menu du jour. The restaurant is a bit more expensive than the others... More

During the week, they have a very affordable plat & menu du jour at lunchtime. It mainly caters for business lunches, but also non-suitwearers are welcome. It is always completely fully booked days in advance it seems, but often they can clear a place at the bar. We had tartar, fish with beans and olives, and choux pastry with chocolate... More

The place is really nice, particularly the terrace if the weather is nice. The food is really good and even if the staff are nice, they are really slow.

I always saw this cute little restaurant on the corner while wandering around in the streets of Carouge but never been there until last Saturday. It was lovely. The gentleman who served us was very polite and had a sense of humor -which is usually hard to find in Geneva. He immediately asked us whether we wanted to have a... More

We had a lovely work dinner in the wine cave dining room. Food was fabulous. Foie gras is fantastic. Wine menu equally good. I like the fact that this quiet gem is a bit off the beaten trail as well so much better known amongst locals. Less of a statement than Brasserie Lipp in terms of ambiance but certainly its... More

Saturday eve in February, completely booked, we reluctantly accept to be seated in the annex (separate entrance). Usually not a good idea. This turned out to be perfect: a mini-restaurant to yourself, stylish yet relaxed, apéro on the lounge chairs, dinner on the long table, own choice of music, etc. Moreover, they didn't forget about us; indeed, we got better...
