In Geneva, everything (just about) is closed on Sunday===except, right between Starbucks and MacDonalds (and near the entrance to the station) is Cafe de Paris.
Basically Cafe de Paris doesn't serve anything but Entrecôte (sirloin steak), and if you don't eat it sanyon (rare) then I have no idea what you might get. BUT, if you do eat it sanyon, and you have a carafe of Geneva Gamay, and you enjoy starting with a green salad that is lightly "vinigaretted", then it is pretty good value for money===at least, on Sunday when almost everybody else is closed.
I have to say, the locals also know it is the only place open: and like me, most of them are well over sixty (unless they have children and grandchildren with them).

Quick service, the meat is good but not as I've ordered (was bleue instead of medium), French fries with a lot of oil and burned...
Price is expensive for the kind of food and service you get.

I do not understand the attraction of this place. They only serve entrecôte with fries and salad. It is smothered in the Cafe de Paris sauce. Every time I have eaten there, the beef was tough. It does have a good location across the Gare Cornavin. But I prefer to eat Entrecôte elsewhere.

We ate regularly at this restaurant starting back in 1968 and into the early 70's. It was terrific then and it sounds like it still is. Sure wish I had the recipe for that herb butter.
