“Big portions!”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We popped in after the Saturday shopping at the Carouge market: the place is quite big so, despite being rush hour, we managed to get a table. The menu is typical Swiss/French: not too many different courses, and can be viewed on their website.
We were very impressed by the portions: I took a Pot of mussels "POULETTE" style which was neverending, and my boyfriend had Veal head and tongue, that was served twice (so that the huge amount of meat and vegetables does not cool down).
The service was fast and attentive, while the price is very much in line with the Geneva area.

“Buzzing place!”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We popped in for a late lunch on a weekday. The place was buzzing! Most guests were locals and people who worked local that had their business lunch there. From what we could see, the favourite lunch time meal was 'Fondue Chinoise'. Not my cup of tea but clearly a good choice for those that were there: I'd say 80% had this for lunch. My friend choose carpaccio and I had mussels. Delicious! Good and efficient service. The place has a French touch in terms of atmosphere but showed Swiss efficiency in terms of service. A nice combination!

“If you want to try Fondue, this is the place !”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

La Bourse is located in the old Carouge, next to the tram station "Marché". It's also easy to get there by car as there are several parking places around.

The brasserie serves French and Swiss cuisine. They have a lovely 18th Century "cave" where you can eat in groups as well. It's recommended to reserve in advance. The decoration reminds us of the traditional French ambiance. In summer the terrace is open and gives a charming view on the place du Marché.

They serve stone grill, Raclette, Pizza, meat, pastas, fish, oysters, mussels and of course the excellent Fondue. Their desserts are wonderful like the typical Meringues with Creme double de Gruyères or the tiramisu, crème brûlée & ice cream among many others.

The price range is around 40 to 70 CHF and the service is good. At lunch time you have a "plat du jour" for only 20 CHF.

I recommended to try this place to enjoy a nice meal among friends or family !

“Good food, wine and service.”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

If you are looking for a place in Carouge to eat with either friends or colleagues, I would recommend la Bourse. It is a traditional Geneva/Carouge style bar/restaurant.

We came late (10pm) and the place was almost full, so we took the only remaining table there.

The steaks were very good (+good sauces) + excellent french fries (thin ones), selection of wines was good as well. Entre and deserts were up to expectation.

It is not cheap, but you get the value for the money you spend there.

“Always great quality”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

We go to la Bourse at least once a month when in Geneva. Though it is pretty expensive, the quality and service are premium. L'entrecôte de la bourse, served with fresh french fries, with a wonderful salad as appetizer, is the best in Geneva. They are kind, quick, and very well educated.
