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.

“Boo”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic location in the old town. Charming appearance. Worst food we had in geneva with a particularly bad tartare. There is so much very significantly better food and atmosphere to be had in geneva. Avoid. Cross the road, like the chicken, to chez am cuisine

“Good food and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

The location is great and the place is very characteristic. Good food, especially the rösti and the entrecôte with mushrooms. The wine is not the best you can have

“Warm welcome, good value, great location”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

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.

“Third visit, food excellent every time”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

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.

“Food is good with average service and a bit priced”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

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
