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.

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
