Booked in advance as passing through Geneva overnight with a business colleague. Restaurant was packed but service remained of a high standard. Fruit de mer was awesome....loaded high with Lobster, Crab, Oysters, King Prawns, Langoustines & more ...good recommendations of local wine.....overall not cheap but great food!!

There are not many more enjoyable places in which to pass an hour or so at lunch on a sunny day than in one of Geneva's restaurants. LIPP is up there among the best of them. Situated in the centre of town, although feeling like you are in the Provence countryside, LIPP has it all. Space, airiness, great food, outstanding... More

After 25 years of going to good restaurants 2-3 times a week, today's meal at Brasserie Lipp was a new low! First the waiter knocks over a glass of full champagne hitting one of my guests! All he does is to offers a serviette - but no other compensation (I paid for the glass he knocked over!) My one guest... More

The titular combination makes this an excellent place to eat albeit at a price typical of Geneva (not cheap but not outrageous). The best part (IMO) is the garden setting, which is surprising considering it's actually in a shopping mall, but it really is beautiful - bright, light, and sunny (I've not been on a rainy day so caveat emptor)....

A charming location on a warm summer's day. Food was outstanding - mussels were excellent in a beautiful gravy, perfectly cooked fish - sole, and a melting lamb shank accompanied by delicately and flavoursome vegetables and some pommes frites. Prices were reasonable considering the high quality of ingredients, great preparation skill and Switzerland premium... They also stored my camera that... More

This is one if the best places in Geneva a sure thing if solo, couple or groups. All food selections are good, fries are the best! Choucroute of meat or fish excellent as well as the moules. Booking is essential. Do not be put off because it's in a shopping center it all works well and central. Service is BRASSERIE... More

We arrived for dinner at this popular brasserie without reservations and were given a choice of a single, poorly-located table outdoors or any available table indoors. Our waiter was stoic but relatively efficient. We started our meal with ceviche. Although a second waiter recommended the scallop ceviche, it was too subtle for our taste & we preferred the crab &...

We visited several highly recommended restaurants and Brasserie Lipp outdid them all, including one that has a Michelin star. Great food, atmosphere & service. As a bonus, there was a good selection for the vegetarian in our group.

A good place to eat Fisher but the tables are too close together to have a private conversation. The food is delicious however.a bit too expensive though.
