About
The Sauce “Café de Paris” was developed by Chef Boubier in 1930 who gifted its secret recipe to his daughter and her husband Mr. Arthur Dumont, owners of “Café de Paris” restaurant in 26 Rue Mont Blanc Geneva; thus enabled them in 1942 to launch an astonishing single menu formula, consisting of a Green Salad, 180 grams of Entrecote Steak with “Café de Paris” sauce and French Fries. The ingredients of this amazing butter sauce are still a secret till today. Four generations later, Mr. François Vouillamoz, the current owner of the original Entrecôte Café de Paris Chez Boubier 1930 restaurant in Geneva is the only person in the world who holds the secret of the “Café de Paris” sauce as it was originated

Having been a regular customer for more than 10 years, the "value erosion" has been all too evident and the offering has been on a steady decline over the years - save for the prices, which have gone in the opposite direction. While the meat...is OK'ish and the salad lettuce fresh, the salad sauce has a sour taste and the Entrecote signature sauce was unrecognizable, in both texture and taste. It is as if the restaurant has decided to ditch the "secret recipe" and created its own sauce in an arbitrary fashion and the result is, to put it mildly, not good at all. If you think it can't get any worse, then wait till you see the fries. Lukewarm, stone hard and without any texture, they were most likely fried 1-2 hours earlier in the day and kept warm, buffet-style. This somehow explains the promptness of the service, because it took us just 25 minutes between placing our order and paying the bill! The service was OK overall but not out of this world. There was a swarm of waiters buzzing around and serving tables in a somewhat uncoordinated manner, where you would have one waiter bring you stuff you had asked the other NOT to bring a few seconds earlier! The setting is not necessarily conducive for a cozy meal and the staff don't look particularly happy or motivated. It's a real shame, because when a single-concept restaurant can't get its (overpriced) food right, then something is definitely wrong.More

I was looking for a special place for dinner to celebrate the day that could have been our wedding day, which got postponed due to covid, hence my partner and I tried to make this day special. I'm so glad I made a reservation at...this place. It was an experience that we will never forget. I booked a table at 6.30pm, but around that time it was really not that busy yet. We got a corner table beside the waterfall making it a perfect ambience for a romantic dinner. I love eating steak, but I normally don't spend that much for it when dining out. But for this one, it is incredibly worth it. The steak comes with a special sauce, salad, and unlimited fries (they were very generous with their fries). The sauce is one of a kind! We also had creme brulee for dessert and it brought back good memories of Paris. All the staff are friendly, from assisting me to making my booking, to attending to us while having our dinner. We will definitely come back when we have a special occasion to celebrate again.More

Environnement not very warm at the entrance of the mall and noisy because of the indoor fountain. Warm and smiling welcome and service. The meat, depending on your choice is good. The sauce, for those who know Geneva Relais l'entrecôte , is not to the...same level. It was very salty yesterday.More

Its beautiful, and the environment is so lively. The ambience makes you forget there is...covid around you. the place is very covid safe.More

Friendly and nice staff. Restaurant nice, close to the fountain. The entrecôte was not grilled as it was supposed to be.. I mean, the steaks looked like boiled probably because the chef did not use an hot grill and the steaks were cold from the...fridge. Luckily the sauce is good and it’s covering the grill mistake. Good the french friesMore

My wife and I have been regular customers at Entrecôte Café de Paris during our 3 years in Dubai. We have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience with a single but always top quality "soul food" dish of sliced entrecôte in a delicious melted herb butter....The staff have always been top class, welcoming and efficient. Recently, Atef has taken special care of us (including a lovely desert surprise) for which we thank him. We will surely pop by when in Dubai.More

When you’re used to amazing ambience, great food, desserts and drinks, what really ends up making the difference is the customer service and it is clear that Atef understands that perfectly. We had a evening coffee with my wife that turned from good to excellent...really fast thanks to atef who knows how to be warm, attentive and super professional at the same time!
