“The "hamburger place" to be in Geneva”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

American diner with 50's atmosphere in the center of Geneva. Decent prices (for Geneva) and good taste and size of burger. Staff very friendly and kind.

“American diner ambiance but swiss price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

The diner is on the ground floor, the store "American Market" on the first. It looks like an American Diner in the 80's, and is decorated accordingly. However, neither the service nor the food remotely resembles the States. The menu is quite limited, mostly burgers and hotdog. No refills of coffee or soda. The most basic burger cost 15 CHF with no side fries or salad. The burger is huge though. I could barely finish.

“Fun and friendly hamburger bar in central Geneva, near Cornavin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This authentic American-style diner is the best hamburger joint in Geneva and also, unlike most eateries here, a fun place. It opened about two months ago and I've been there four times already. It's not a gourmet restaurant, just a lively, friendly place to get a decent hamburger and fries. And you can have a glass of wine too! And delicious cheesecake. Everything is made on the premises and the staff are helpful and smiling. It makes MacDonald's look like a very boring place!
Thanks to all the staff and especially boss Stéphane for giving us a great place to get a meal downtown.
