It is quite common to expect airport food to be on the expensive side and sometimes limited in choice. However in general, geneva airport takes the cake. Geneva airport already exudes an image of nauseous luxury. Montreux jazz café perfectly reflects this image. A lot of travellers go through geneva airport and the food spots seem to cater to a...

Geneva airport is, quite frankly the worst airport I have ever been to. After queuing to check in and security for over 2 hours I was looking forward to sitting down and having something to eat with my family before our flight. We chose this place as it appeared to be the best of a bad bunch. We were squished... More

Convenient and not a lot more - waiters can be surly. Still, we meet there often and live with the downside.

Worst place in many years. Bad food, ignorant staff and slow service. Any other place at the AirPort is better. The sallad was not in line with the description. The drinks and the bredd arrived 15 minutes after the food although friendly reminder. When I told the staff that this was not ok he laughed at me. He laughed even... More

Waiters were busy chatting amongst themselves and we were left without drinks or orders being placed for at least half and hour. Food took an age to bring out and was mediocre and Luke warm. Very disappointing

Unbelievable prices for reformed fake egg (dyed yellow not real yolk) and chicken ham slices. £25 for the worst club sandwich...

Ordered a cheeseburger, which came with gherkins despite requesting without. Second one came without sides, which I then had to request again. When I bit into the burger, it was quite possibly the most disgusting burger I've ever tasted. Far worse than a burger you would get at a fast food chain- for the sum of 19CHF. Don't waste your...

21 Euros for a beer and sandwich - certainly not value. The prices were in Swiss Francs and when I asked how much in Euro he pulled a figure out? Not even run through the till ?

21 euros for two pints of beer and a bowl or crisps! Sure the beer was nice but that is eye wateringly expensive!
