Though I try to avoid imagining what I'm eating I love frogs legs & Cafe des Negociants served the best I've eaten yet- small, tender and robustly flavored with garlic and butter (but not swimming in a pool of melted goo). All the food we ordered was fresh and well prepared. The neighborhood is a pleasant stroll before or after... More

Great casual neighborhood place in Carouge; lovely interior (beautiful zinc bar), plenty outdoor garden seating.. Not a large place or a large staff but the entire waitstaff was a team attending to our two-top even as the restaurant grew busier. Small but excellent menu and wine list. Recommended to us by a bystander in the hotel we were staying in... More

This was our second time at Cafe des Negociants, and yet again we relished our dinners. We shared a starter, each had a glass of wine and main and the total bill came to 140CHF which I thought was quite a lot..but really great food - you won't be disappointed!

In the heart of the beautiful and atmospheric Carouge area of Geneva this is a great restaurant. The food was not your usual fare and it was beautifully done: the Swiss wines were a brilliant accompaniment. Staff were friendly and helpful and the interior of the restaurant interesting yet comfortable.

Menu and course of the day delicious and available during lunch on Saturday for 29 & 19CHF. The taste, quality and presentation exceeded our expectations. Friendly service as well. Can highly recommend this place.

My husband and I both chose the steak which is their specialty, and we both thought it was one of the best steaks we have ever had. Great ambience and really friendly service. We'll be going back and think none of you will be disappointed!

During a recent business trip we ate for lunch in the wine cellar downstairs, table for 6/8 amongst the bottles, with all of the charm of Geneva. Service was excellent, recommendations and helpful advice on daily specials. Food was good and wine choices were great. Didn't look at the prices too much, but would recommend. Atmosphere potentially lacking a little,... More

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.
