Great place in a cool neighborhood in Carouge. The service was very good. The dishes were surprisingly good presented and were very tasty. Fresh products beautifully cooked. Especially recommended when sun is out you can sit on the small terrace.

Le Gabrien is a very nice place with lovely staff and a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The food was really good, and it mixes traditional cuisine with a more contemporary approach. The lentil soup was exquisite.

We read good reviews so we decided to try Le Gabrien. It is true that the staff is extremely friendly and pleasent but unfortunately the food is just not great. I had the scallops as a starter and the tartare de loup as a main. The scallops were very salty and on a single lettuce leaf for ChF 26. I... More

I have visited many times Gabrien in Carouge and I can only say the best. The stuff and the owner are really friendly and with this attitude they certainly make a difference. The plat du jour is always very tasty and I love its profiterol. I think it is the best in the hole Geneva!

My wife and I visited this restaurant three times during our stay in Geneva in August and then again in September 2014. Even though their menu is short on items, we enjoyed meals we already liked there. Their specialties are filet de perche and fish lasagna, both of which were excellent. We also enjoyed seasonal chanterelles as appetizer. On some... More

We didn't make a reservation, and as we realised a little later, we were lucky to get a table. The restaurant was bursting at seams. The staff was very friendly and were helping us with their english to complete our broken french. Both of our dinners, meat dishes, were superb - I wouldn't change a single thing, it was just...

I have been several times to this friendly and attractive Carouge restaurant. While the terrace doesn't have an amazing view, it is located on a fairly quiet street and is the only place to be when weather permits. Have tried a variety of tables inside and favour the booth-style ones near the rear. The food is of consistently good quality,... More

Lovely restaurant to eat inside. The terrace is not spectacular. Food and wine were really nice! The only thing I found a bit boring was the salade St Jacques, really only 5 scallops and lettuce. Nice but the chef could use a little more his or her imagination. Dessert was to die for, best fondant au chocolate I ate in... More

I initially visited this restaurant when I first moved to Geneva in 2007. I still go today. The main reason I go is for the seafood lasagna. Although, lasagna is not a good word for this dish (fortunately), it's better described as a seafood wrap or seafood wrapped in pasta. Whatever it is, it's really an enjoyable dish. I can't... More
