This is a really simple&nice place. They have about 10 dishes, all with chicken, and they are all delicious and they serve well.

The traditional dish to order is the half chicken that comes with a green salad and potatoes, simple and good. This dish is 15.-.

They have three "Chez ma cousine" in Geneva, this one, the one in front of Manor and one in the old city. They are all in the same atmosphere, cosy, family like, friendly, the waiters are super nice everywhere, all in all it is a very nice restaurant with well served plates !

Good for families, friends or couples. Cheap for Geneva and good.

Thanks to Tripadvisor I picked out this chain of restaurants for a good quality, value for money meal. Value for money is a real rarity in Geneva!

I took 3 business colleagues and we have a company guideline of £25 each for an evening meal. I got the hotel concierge to call and make a booking, took me a couple of attempts to persuade them that there are 3 branches and I just wanted to go to the nearest.

The other 2 are more central and in a more interesting part of town but this one was fine. Comfortable enough and didn't really need to book as there were spare tables when we arrived by taxi.

We had a main course, salad, dessert, bread and coffee each and 1 litre of Cote du Rhone between us.

The half chicken is delicious, a good size and lovely and moist. The Cousine sauce is fine too.

One colleague had the pork which he said was very good too. I just couldn't top eating the Provencale potatoes, crisp on the outside fluffy in the middle. A much better alternative to French Fries.

Nice crisp, fresh green salad. Bread to mop up the interesting special sauce.

Creme Brulee and tarte tatin with ice cream went down well amongst us.

Service was attentive and very friendly. Food was served up very quickly but at no time did we feel rushed.

Obviously popular with the locals.

The bill including tip was 160 francs so just a pound or two over our allowance.

Great value, really nice simple, tasty food. I would definitely return.

These restaurants are among the affordable ones in Geneva. The food is good, though not exceptional, but would definitely go back.

Geneva is a city of expensive restaurants. Home to the $12 beer and $13 baguette sandwich at the train station. So when you can have a great meal for about $25 total, how can you go wrong? The roasted chicken with potatoes is fantastic. I've also tried the lamb, pork, and curried chickend dishes. Ok, it's not going to make any Michelin stars, but the service is always quick and awesome, and it is the one place you can eat in Geneva and truly enjoy a well cooked meal that's a good value. It's also pretty quiet, so if you want a nice business dinner it's good too. I go here at least a few times during my Geneva trips.

Situated in the old quarter of Geneva, this small restaurant offers outdoor seating and a cosy interior. The chicken came with chunky fried potatoes and a green salad- all very simple, and satisfying. For the vegetarians in our party, the salade au chèvre was enjoyable. Beware of the high price of wine. Worth a visit if you fancy something ordinary and tasty.
