“Excellent service, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Because kitchen was closed at the time when we were there - we get some desserts and coffee. Great location in old town, just few steps away from arsenal building. Excellent service!

“Very good food, drinks overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Indeed very good plât du jour for lunch (22 SFr). Nice entrée, small salad with a local cheese bread. Main course crispy veal steak. Excellent taste. We ordered table water without looking at the menu. this was a negative surprise when the bill came. 9.60 per bottle (75cl)! Almost 10 Euros, a rip off.. Good service and nice location in the old town. However not so cosy indoor atmosphere as you could have expected. No tourists, only business people. A bit noisy.

Wonderful menu, very efficient service and tonight when the fries came in a bit late, the chef re-heated the "perches".

“The location is fantastic, the food very good, the personnel Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Went on a Business dinner there. The location is beautiful, in the old Geneva Town, just few steps away from the Cathedral. The food is excellent, specially the fish, and the personnel was fantastic. This was a great choice, highly recommended.

“Nice restaurant with good dishes and very nice personal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

I was having a nice dinner in Cafe Papon and I warmly recommend this restaurant. Nice dishes with good presentation and good taste. The personal is very friendly and they are really putting an effort to make a customer enjoy the evening. They presented us also different kind of local vines. very nice menu. Good location also in the old town.
