The food here was great but if you're not comfortable speaking French I would perhaps avoid it here as the staff speak little English. One for the locals.

Small popular restaurant 5 minutes away from the city center (train station). Familial atmosphere, Attended by local people and workers. It is strongly recommended to book in advance for lunch as the place is very popular.

It's a nice atmosphere here. Simple decor, helpful and efficient service, simple food but well prepared in huge portions and very much home-style. And quite reasonably priced by Geneva standards. And the place was packed with customers by 8 pm, on a week night. The fries and steaks (horse for me, beef for others at the table) were all good... More

It's a local culture of Geneva, but with big portions. You'll find meat and potatoes or pasta. Good options as Starters for sharing. Staff very friendly. Nice enviroment. Very crowded, so make a reservation before.

This is a fantastic little and simple place! Decent size menu with various steaks, cordon bleu, seasonal special of "chasse". Service was friendly and quick, prices are below Geneva prices for food like that. Booking will be necessary as it's quite busy. Will certainly go back.

Loud, yet cosy, very affordable with great portions and amazing quality of food. Very unpretentious, but this is its charm!

We attended this restaurant because it came up with so many good reviews on Trip Adviser. As others have said, it is away from the tourist area and is a place for locals. We called ahead to book which was a good thing because while we were there, others were turned away. The food is delicious and very good value.... More

6 of us went there for a family dinner. We got a friendly welcome and 2 large plates of parma ham to start, free of charge. We all ordered something different and all were very happy with the food. Be warned, big helpings, don't eat before you go!

Hands down favorite for best food:price ration in Geneva. We always take our visitors here so they can have a feel for the "real" Geneva. This isn't glitzy rich people stuff, it's a cafe with absolutely delicious food for unbelievable prices in Geneva, which, if you know anything about Geneva, is akin to finding a unicorn. Reservations are a must... More
