“A good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This restaurant is famous all over the world, and really it is great. The meat and all the salads are good, and it is located near the "Cornavine" railway station, and that is handy, because you do not have to go far with your succases (if you came by train, of course).

“always a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is an iconic restaurant of Geneva. Only one choice here: a steak presented on a plate of herb butter on a table burner. For Swiss Franc 41 per person it includes bread, green salad and delicious French fries together with the steak. This is a great deal in Genenva, one of the most expensive cities in the world!

The seating arrangement encourages patrons to talk to each other, and this restaurant being one of the favourite of the international crowd, you will probably speak Riussian or Greek or German and French in no time!

“Not quite what we expected!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We arrived here very tired after a long day and we should have checked the menu before sitting down. You have to like steak and chips because that is all they serve. The cost is eye watering by British standards. The waiter was haughty and verging on arrogant. We had to remind him four times before he brought the mineral water and it was still rather than the sparkling which we had requested. A bottle of mediocre red wine cost 45 ch francs and the water 6.5! The meal was memorable for the cost rather than the food. The steak was ok but there was not a lot of it, the chips were the best I have had for a long time. We will not he going back unless we win the lottery!

“Great Location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Café de Paris in Geneva only serves one dish, but it does it very well, the entrecote is well seasoned and well cooked, it is not a good place if you're looking for variety, as I said it only offers one entre. However the fix price and the quality of the food make it a good option in Geneva, where similar restaurants are more expensive, plus it has a great location, very close to the train station, the lake and the old part of town.
