When I want to have a good charbonnade (it's a kind of hot-coal barbecue that they bring to your table and give you raw meat to cook yourself), I always go to Le Bouchon. Set in an unpretentious area of Carouge close to the M-Parc La Praille, it still manages to attract a lot of people. The main reason people... More

We paid a lot of money for a bottle of prosecco, our fault we did not asked for the price before. We were badly served, the waitress in the restaurant was extremely unfriendly and did not care about the group.

We went for the birthday of my daughter and we were very disappointed by the very poor service this restaurant has. We basically waited for every single thing we ordered. It was exhausting by the end.

If you are a fan of meat, look no further. It is a great restaurant with excellent cuisine and service. Acceptable prices.

That was an office Christmas dinner, so the place sounded right with enough place to accomodate groups and formulas that sound fiendly to share. But the result came as disappointing: too much noise, too hot (because of the broilers), too smelly. When you go out, your clothes seem like you will never be able to wear them again. The meat...

The meat was good but quite expensive, the same for the wine. The place was really hot, no air to breath. We were not very far from the door, so at some point we were just freezing. It was so smoky that our clothes were smelling really bad, and we had to do the laundry as soon as we got... More

This restaurant is located on the ground floor of a big building. From outside it's not easy to see it. When you are inside, you have a GREAT big restaurant with differents spaces and there is also a space to dance (At least on saturday evening). The charbonnade is very good and I appreciated that they don't put too much... More

Good beef but 8 CHF for a bottle of water and 14 CHF for a spoon of jagermaister it's too much. It's a pity because the charbonier it's really good.

We had charbonnade express with some good Genevoise red for the whole group. Service was friendly and quick, meat tender, fresh and plentiful, and sides reasonable. On a Saturday evening the place was absolutely packed, and the atmosphere was lively - most of the people seemed to have either charbonnade or meat fondue for dinner. Reservation is probably a good... More
