“Great Seafood but service mixed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We very much enjoyed the food at this restaurant especially the Moules and the Prawns with Nacos. We found it expensive but its probably average for central Geneva. We were dissappointed by the service. Whilst the table waiter was helpful and polite the Maitre de was rude and supercilious when pushing more tables in next to us. We felt unwelcome and pushed out. A pity.

“Excellent fish”

Ate outside with street entertainers to add to the ambience and the fish and seafood was just excellent . The service was professional .. and the prices about right for Geneva ( high for most other places ! )

“Great food, nice location, prompt service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Likes: Chef in the window preparing fantastic seafood platters with fresh oysters, king prawns, lobsters. Sitting outside in the historic square near the clock tower. Food was cooked to perfection and using seasonal produce.. the Chanterelle mushrooms were abundant in July and well worth trying.
Dislikes: None

“Sea food. Perfectly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I visited Cafe du Centre in april 2013. This is one of the best restaurants specialized in sea food I've ever been. Cafe du Centre situated just in the centre of Geneva (guess why it's called so! :-) on Place du Molard. Wonderfull food, great choice of oysters, excellent service. BUT expensive!

“Very good place to eat fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was recommended to visit this place by locals. Visited it first time with a very demanding customer, a fish lover. He was very happy. Since then, visited it several times. Every time was beautiful. I always ordered fish goods, mainly a selection of crabs, lobsters ers. it is nicely served on ice. It is normally accompanied with a good local white wine.

Will not carry on any furhter :) Please come and check it out:) !
