Cheap for Geneva prices (apart from the usual extortionate wine prices), food was fine if a little underwhelming, decor basic.

We really loved the quaint and intimate interior of this lovely café.
We ordered the 1/2 chicken with salad and pommes frites (fries). The potatoes were delicious and the salad was fresh and crisp, however, I didn't love the honey and mustard dressing on the salad. If you are ordering the special sauce, one portion will suffice between two people as they charge extra for it.
We had the fondant and tarte tatin for dessert which we really enjoyed, the ice-cream is an extra cost bringing the desserts in at 9CHF each which was a bit over priced in my opinion. We had 5dl of a red wine from Geneva and it wasn't very good so order carefully from the wine list.
Overall we really enjoyed our meal and it was a filling and tasty treat. The waitress was attentive and the food arrived promptly. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Geneva and looking for a comforting and filling meal.

This is definitely one of the better place in Geneva to get relatively cheap food, which is still tasty and of good quality. They specialize in chicken and because of their low prices they are popular with young people/students. The place is a bit cramped, but since you don't pay very much, I found this not to be a problem. Service is quite fast as well.

Cheap and fast for Geneva standards. Chicken is tasty and so are desserts. Nevertheless:

- Salads are AWFUL (a problem in all of the Chez ma cousine in Geneva): bad, white and hard lettuce drown by default in a mustardy vinaigrette. Why not oak leaf lettuce and the possibility to add the sauce oneself?

- Other meat, such as lamb and pork, are not made with good cuts, they have plenty of nerves and grease and are overcooked, with no juices of their own.
