“Very very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Nomen est nomen: This charming restaurant is situated in the middle of the Geneva banking area. It is one of my favourite places in Geneva and I can strongly recommend it for a business lunch.

“Just Great in Every Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

I had never been to such a great restaurant in Geneva before.

The place is well located near the financial quarter. It is neat and pretty. Service is very professional. Food is formidable. The bill came to CHF 150 for 2 people including wine. I enjoyed the Speculoos Mousse for Dessert.

“Very good Italian food ; great for business lunches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

Top notch Italian cuisine; really good service. We had the squid resotto; lobster tagaletelle and both were done to perfection. Wine recommendations was v good. We had lunch here and it was more of a business crowd. That said, i ll definitely come back for the food。

“Ok food but a little tasteless. Service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

Ok food but a little tasteless. Service was very good but the price for what you got was a little harsh.

“Nothing special about food, but don't mind going back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2009

I went to Cafe des Banques with several friends. We all had different dishes but the service was not slow at all and we all were quite satisfied! (my friend's greenish risotto was good!) It's really reasonably priced. We also had few bottles of wine but still, the bill was smiling at us :) And I loved those jellies offered after the meal!
