“Extremely expensive”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Good beef but 8 CHF for a bottle of water and 14 CHF for a spoon of jagermaister it's too much.
It's a pity because the charbonier it's really good.

“Great charbonnade”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had charbonnade express with some good Genevoise red for the whole group. Service was friendly and quick, meat tender, fresh and plentiful, and sides reasonable. On a Saturday evening the place was absolutely packed, and the atmosphere was lively - most of the people seemed to have either charbonnade or meat fondue for dinner. Reservation is probably a good idea.

And to those who complain about the price - get a grip, this is Geneva so it's pretty useless to compare to prices elsewhere. For Geneva, the price is reasonable at least we paid 55chf pp., including wine.

“Pricey, not value for money”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

The place is quite dingy. It is located in the outskirts of Carouge, in an industrial area and not the romantic and old part of Carouge. The place looks like a run down bar, serving charbonnade.

Pro: Coal fire charcoal pit at your table. Good service.

Con: Hair and clothes will smell of smoked meat even if you are not eating it. Very expensive for several pieces of beef with 6 sauces and 1 salad.

“Service is good, but the rest so so”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had lunch there last Sunday. My wife ordered the (expensive) plat-du-jour (30 frs) which was OK. The fondue I ordered was one of the worse ones I've had, if not THE worst. We were happy to find a place open on a Sunday (non-stop), but we found it quite expensive for ordinary food. The ventilation is poor and many people ordered the house specialty "Charbonnade" table barbeque, so we spent the rest of the day STINKING!
