La Bourse is quite large with at least three good sized rooms on the ground floor plus another restaurant in the basement for Swiss specials such as fondue. It is situated on one corner of the market place and after wandering around the interesting market we decided to eat. We were taken to one of the rooms which was half... More

Brasserie La bourse is located at the beautiful place du marché in vieux Carouge. Their speciality is entrecôte café de Paris with pommes allumettes. I went for it and it was delicious. My wife had the roasted chicken with salad and fries and was very happy about her choice.

Touring for a comfortable place in la Carouge, we decided to enter la Bourse. My spouse chose the vegetarian hamburger and I opted for the classic hamburger. We were happy with these two dishes. Although we did not try the desserts - I noticed they served very special desserts with framboise and gruyere cream that looked great. I liked the... More

The food was good but not very special with not many nice options in the menu. The service was friendly, the chef made a mistake and they easily searched a solution. Good option for trying traditional dishes of swizertland

Sat for 45 minutes without my order being taken. Wasn't given any bread, was simply ignored by the waiting staff. Watched a French family come in and immediately be given a bread basket, and have their order taken. Magnificent rudeness, with a side order of racism. Gave up and left in the end. Good work, everyone - I'm sure the... More

Located on the central square of Carouge and offering a very reasonable - for Geneva - plat du jour lunch option. On the day we visited this comprised a smoked salmon "amuse bouche", green salad or vegetable soup and veal escalope with linguine for 20 swiss francs. All very well prepared and presented. To be recommended if you are visiting... More

There is not much to say other than the atmosphere, service and helpful staff are excellent, the food delicious. We had three courses of different dishes, and they were all of superior quality. If you are in the area I can recommend La Bourse unconditionally.

Have lived in Carouge for years and have watched this restaurant move from a very ordinary place to something rather special. The food is outstanding although not particularly imaginative. Portions are very generous, well prepared and the service is good and the staff friendly and helpful for the most part. Desserts have become so special and well presented it might... More

I had dinner today at the Brasserie La Bourse in Geneva and the food was excellent. I was there with a couple of friends and we had different dishes and all were extremely good. The next time you are in Geneva you should certainly try t out.

A lucky choice as we walked through Carouge to find somewhere to eat! We both had fabulous meals - Fillet Steak with a wonderful selection of unusually presented seasonal vegetables and Moules Frites - generous and faultless. Great service from staff with a fabulous sense of humour. But the best was yet to come with the desserts - wow! For... More
