“Enjoyable Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Cafe des Banques is a fine restaurant, about a 5 minute walk from Old Town. The decor is very appealing. The service is attentive. The food is thoughtfully prepared and quite tasty. Definitely a nice dining choice in Geneva.

“Excellent Business Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Went to Cafe Des Banques with two business colleagues. Nice, dignified atmosphere. Excellent food. I had the Tac Tac Tuna, which was perfectly prepared. My colleague had pasta with pork, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I would definitely return.

“Probably the best food and ambiance in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

This is definitely our favourite restaurant in town! It merits all the praise.. We've been there countless times and have always had a great experience. The quality of food is just excellent, the menu is refined and not overcrowded. The staff is very attentive but not overwhelming and the ambiance is very nice -which is quite rare to find in Geneva. It tends to be fuller at lunch time than in the evening.

“Very surprised !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We were in the neighborhood with friends and walked in to the Café des Banques. Very helpful and warm staff and a lovely meal. Ask for the "tartare de thon" which is served raw (Tuna) on a bed of avocado cream ... wonderful !
