Loved the steak in here that's all you can eat but food is very very good ,
Bustling place , get there early as you have to wait outside as there are no reservations here ,
Staff are very good and I would recommend this place without hesitation

Very nice service and delicious dessert. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant. As always (in Geneva) they did not speak english, but even so they where very helpful.

When you sit down, the only thing you order is your drink and how you want your meat done. We ordered medium-rare and it really was medium-rare. The meat is very good and it is excellent together with the café de paris butter. The french fries are home-made and you can order more if you want. The overall quality is very good and that they offer only one main dish I think is very sympathic, they are just specialized. Some reviewers said it is very noisy: true, but that is part of the atmosphere and not automatically negatively related! Service was ok but nothing special.

My wife and I ate at Cafe de Paris in Geneva last monday evening. I saw a Tripadvisor certificate on the wall with 4.5 rating, thus was hopeful that we would have an enjoyable evening. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing, the waiters (all men) were very sultry, the cote de boeuf was lying on a bed of some 'Cafe de Paris' butter, which a) looked very unappetising and b) had no taste/flavour. The Cote de boeuf was good, but what was really lacking was any atmosphere. Unfortunately the restaurant is also situated next door to a McDonalds, which I suppose doesn't help. If you enjoy a simple menu and like steak/cote de boeuf, than go to L'Entrecote on the otherside of the main bridge in Geneva. Your served by matrons, the sauce vierge is delicious and the deserts are excellent (and you get a much wider choice in deserts.)

This is such a place that always keeps up to what they promise. Not more, not less. I visited first time 40 years ago ( !! ) and I still think it's a must when i Geneva.
Simplicity, quality of food, service with charm and, important, a crowd of guests that very well represents the Globe and The United Nations. Just go there and enjoy! But make sure you go to the original one: Café de Paris, close to the Train station - not l'Entrecôte on the left side of the river.
