Located opposite Cornavin station. Pleasant typical pub decor and atmosphere. Often crowded and very animated. Great place for drinks, snacks and full meals, including Swiss specialities. Wonderful beer and flammenkuches. Friendly and efficient service.

Went to Les Brasseurs while in Geneva for a conference. Had a flight of beer and the goats cheese to start which was really good. I was there alone but made to feel welcome in the busy bar watching the various sports being shown on the TVs around the bar. Can recommend. Will certainly revisit when next in Geneva.

The restaurant was full of tourists when we arrived, but we received our order in a timely fashion regardless. Japanese family on one side, British retirees on the other of our booth. Our fondue was good, the wine decent. Overall a good experience, although the food was expensive for what we got. Waitress was excellent.

I used to go there when I was a teenager, and 20 years later I still love this place. They have a good beer that they produce, good variety of food. It might be crowded, but it worth it. If you are a big beer drinker try the "Colonne", up to five liters of beer served at your table in... More

Had lunch for the first time here and food was good enough but nothing amazing (plat du jour was the Irish Flammenkuech , drinks were excellent though with home made "desperado" type draught and Swiss bottled cider. Service was excellent and fast though and extremely accommodating. There are also good "formules": With burgers, for only 2 francs you can add... More

That applies to both the food and the beers. We ate here on our first night in Geneva - it was just across the road from our hotel - and were pleasantly surprised. It was different from anything we'd had before, there seemed to be lots of (probably) local people there, and the beer was very good. Price didn't seem... More

I tried the beer sampler and a calabrese flammenkueches. Loved the food, and the darker beers were better than the lighter. Amber and L'agave were my favorites.

The food is good but nothing to write home about. The flammkuches are a good bet for catching a bite before boarding the train in the Gare Cornavin right opposite. But the beers are another thing. Brewed in house, they are very good. I will specially recommend the ambre (amber coloured beer). In a group, the 3 or 5 litre... More

This is not a bad spot to eat over a beer. It is also a good place to people watch. However, don't expect to get super service as Les Brasseurs appears to be severely understaffed. We had to fight to place a food order from the sole waiter! However, it's food quality was better than that suggested by the service... More

Dear Bones6t, We do not feel to be understaffed. However, depending on the weather, events in Geneva (breakdown of train, conference, etc.), it is possible that at certain times, customers wait longer than usual. We are trying hard to correct that. Best regards. Philippe, manager More
