We visited Bistrot du Boeuf Rouge as a result of the TripAdvisor reviews, and once again this website has delivered! It was easily our best meal in Geneva - everything was great.

The service from the moment we walked in was fantastic - everyone was so friendly, the food was delicious, the Swiss wine was great, the place was buzzing and the price was quite reasonable. All in all, it was close to a perfect bistro experience.

This restaurant seems to get everything right.

From the genuine welcome we received at the door to the helpful recommendations from the waitress, you can tell that the staff takes pride in this restaurant. The clientele was a healthy mix of tourists and locals, and many of the latter were treated like family by the staff—a good sign in any restaurant.

The food was reasonably priced, for Geneva. We ordered one of the many perch dishes on the menu and also an onglet (hanger steak, similar to flank steak) with shallot sauce and butter.
Décor was traditional, but with a bright and happy vibe.

Centrally located restaurant which has an authentic bistro feel. Good service. The food was very good, although not great. Seems to be a very popular place as several guests that had not made reservations was refused a table.

Had a business lunch and tried the "Entrecôte au beurre de pastis" recommended by one of the party. It was amazing.
Rustic French atmosphere and relatively small so reservations are recommended. There are a few tables outside but these are on the sidewalk with no privacy.
Would recommend and will return next time I'm visiting.

We had a business dinner with 11 guests. The place is typical French with good food and service. Generally worth the visit. My only advice is to wathch the cost of the drinks.
