Description: It is a straight forward inexpensive restaurant in the old city of Geneva with a general European cuisine, mixed with a few Balkan dishes. It does a good rosti. But the general food enjoyment is let down by a surly and rude waiter.

I've been to Café du Bourg de Four several times and been warmly welcomed and enjoyed good Swiss food. In summer, sit outside in the square.
Loos are down a treacherously steep staircase just before the bar.
Although Roesti is a Bernese speciality, Café du Bourg de Four does excellent variations, with cheese, egg or sausage. Yum.
Great old town location.
Fast, friendly service.

Picked randomly on a first visit to Geneva, the Cafe du Bourg de Four was good enough to go back to on two other occasions - once for dinner and twice for lunch. The rosti is excellent, and other dishes tried (steak with mushroom sauce, steak tartare) were also of a very high quality. The location is excellent, in a lively part of the old town.

We had dinner there with our kids. We ordered 4 dishes (there is no menu for children) and got mixed food: beef was ok but tuna steak was not great. If you pay with credit card you get 3% up charge...we found this practice not friendly at all

Little, cute restaurant. Lovely decoration. If you want to eat good rösti, this is the place to be. Must to try: hazelnut liqueur.

We had lunch here on a rainy cold March day. This brasserie had many locals as well as tourists who filled the tables at this small restaurant in one of Geneva's oldest squares. My husband said it was one of the best steak tartars that he has tasted. I had homemade baked spinach ravioli.
Just delicious ! We both had some local Swiss wine which was delicious. The service was superb. I highly recommend this charming little restaurant.
