I had a business lunch here recently, given the proximity of my guest's office. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the atmosphere is really buzzing, the service fast and friendly, and the food very good. The "plat du jour" was excellent and very affordable. A good place to eat in the proximity of the airport. (Parking... More

Close to GVA airport and surrounded by many office buildings, this restaurant offers a nice setup for a business lunch. Traditional plates and plat du jour are complemented by their famous "plane" dishes, a great entrecôte with their special sauce and great french fries. You can have more servings of fries an sauce as you want. The Caravelle steak starts... More

We ordered entrecote. It was second to none. Half way through it, we got more fries and more of that delicious garlic sauce on top. Great choice in an quite hidden locatio

I have been eating here for years and the food has always been delicious and high quality but my last meal there a week ago the steak was tough, raw and lacked any flavour, the house sauce wasn't as delicious and the fries tasted as though they were frozen rather than homemade. I think it's changed hands as I couldn't... More

Their flagship is the Caravelle steak, which also comes in two larger formats. I had the medium one (Super Caravelle) and it was more than enough, you better be hungry! Great quality and great service. Highly recommended if you are in the area!

I have been in this restaurant many times and always had a great evening with friends and great food. I can recommend this place especislly for steak: the speciality is "Caravelle" and the special is the extremely tasty sauce (garlic and fatty). It comes with a small side salad with bread, french fries. I never left this place spending less... More

I was a part of a very large group of people. The food was enjoyable, slightly on the expensive side but this has to be expected in Geneva. Might visit again.

Some colleagues and myself were invited by our manager to share a lunch, a few days ago. Even if the restaurant is very close from our office, I never went there... What a mistake! The decor is aviation related, hence the name of the restaurant... And the names of the signature meals too: Caravelle, Super Caravelle and L'A380 (pieces of... More
