Reviewed November 16, 2012

Very nice service, good wine selection. The food excellent and presentation is great. There is time to leisurely have a glass of wine while reading the menu. Good ambiance. Have an appetizer while mulling over the dinner choice.

“Good if you like chicken”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Probably a bad choice for vegetarians. If you don't like chicken, probably an equally bad choice. Lots of chicken.

“Reliable for excellent chicken”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Chez Ma Cousine does one thing, and does it extremely well, It was recommended to my wife by friends who lived near Place Bourg de Four before we came to town. It's a low-cost, casual place in an area full of touristy options, it's open on Sundays (which is rare in Geneva) and it's totally reliable. Take-away is available, and lightening-fast.
The menu consists of half a chicken with country potatoes and salad, or chicken salad. That's it. Nevertheless it's always full to bursting, often with a line out the door. The chicken is delicious, especially with the special sauce (which is an extra few francs - order one serving per two diners) the skin-on fried potatoes are excellent, and the salad comes with a typically French, heavy-on-the-mustard vinaigrette - yum!
There's a short but decent wine list, with reds and whites selected to go well with the chicken, and a comprehensive selection of desserts; everything from light sorbets to rich pot au chocolat.
We haven't tried the other two outlets, but if they're anything like this one, they'll be grand.

“Reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went with my sister, we had 2 1/2 chicken comes with potatoes and a salad with a nice dressing and a sauce for the chicken. The food is delicious and the service is good, at lunch time it gets really busy and you'll probably have to wait until a table is available. The only thing that I didn't like is that if you ask for tap water you have to pay for it, it's only 1CHF but I don't understand why would they charge people for that!!

I've been there so many times and would definitely go again.
