“Still the best sirloin steak sauce de Paris”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I've know this place for years and for me it is still the best in Geneva for the sirloin and the unique sauce, although I think the meat tenderness has fallen a notch. They charge Fr 41.50 for the meat, fries and a small salad. Other places charge about the same. Decor has not changed in years. The place gets busy for lunch; no reservations taken. Nice deserts choice and the open red wine is good.

“Not quite up to expectations”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I have eaten here before and was always more than satisfied. Don't get me wrong but on my last visit about aweek and a half ago it wasn't what I remember. The steak seemed tough and the seasonings were overpowering. It seemed the same inside but it just was not up to snuff. Perhaps I caught an off night. For the prices charged, I expect better.

My next visit to Geneva will find me back at L'Entrecote. The food is consistently good. Same prices.

“It's a must!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This fantastic, traditional restaurant in Geneva serves only one dish!
Entrecote, with delicious french fries, and Café de Paris sauce.
The only decisions you need to make is how you want your meat done, what to dring, and which of the many desserts you can manage to squeeze down after finishing the generous serving of the main course.

I really shouldn't recommend this place, because that will only make it more difficult for me to get a table the next time I visit them.
I spent one week in Geneva this March, during the Motor Show, and spent two nights at Café de Paris... was going to go for a triple, but had to end my visit one day earlier than planned unfortunately...
