This restaurant is on a pedestrian mall next to a McDonald's. It has out (smoking) & indoor (non-smoking) seating. The menu is an easy choice: salad, grilled steak & frites. There is a tabletop cooker at your table where the semi-prepared steak is brought to finish cooking in a butter/cheese sauce. The fries keep coming. Quite good & reasonably priced for Geneva.

Steak frites was the sole menu item at the time we visited, preceded by a green tossed salad.
Both were better than good but the price at 49 chf each???
Service only moderate .
Obviously very popular with locals

This is one of the old and famous. Most people probably know the "cafe de Paris" powder sauce from Knorr - this is where it all started, but it has nothing to do with powder sauce..

I have been here 100 times and it is excellent for a good businesslunch or with a couple of friends. Meat is always top quality and sauce is the original homemade - virtually only butter.....

I would like a better winelist however.

A safe bet everyone would like. It is in fact not a tourist-trap but a quality place - even if you will be billed even for butter!

We had the steak in butter sauce. Very good, as was the service. But for the price, a challenge to say good value.

We live in the USA but love to come to Cafe de Paris for dinner while in Geneva. The menu is simple. You all order the same thing! But you can choose how you want it.
You are served a really tasty Salad with Bread. Your Steak with its' Secret Buttery/Garlic sauce is cooked in front of you at you table. It is so good, you will love it! The wine is very nice and I would recommend the Gamay Red, a local wine. The desserts are also excellent. I prefer the Coffee ice cream with chocolate sauce. It is a quick meal if you are in a hurry, but you can also take your time. You can sit outside and eat also, in the summer and watch the people walk by. We especially like the hours which are very flexible and they are open on Sunday's which many restaurants are not open on Sunday in Geneva.
