Those who have been around like us for a while may well recall the Cafe du Raisin at Petit-Saconnex run by two brothers. And indeed we went into a state of mourning when they decided to retire. To our great delight we learned recently that they are back in action at the Restaurant Lamartine. As before, the quality of food... More

This place is somewhat off the beaten track, but it is far from unknown by the locals as it was packed on the evening we went. The menu was basically steaks of one form or another and they were generally pretty good. Sadly the vegetables served with them were over cooked and quite inedible.

Great salad, great steak, great atmosphere and reasonable prices considering how expensive Geneva is. Two can share a big steak and there is enough in it for two helpings each. Will be back on my next visit.

This restaurant is a few minutes away form downtown Geneva but was around the corner from our hotel. Recommended by the hotel we were very pleasantly greeted and had a wonderful meal. Our waiter spoke some English and we some French so we had a great time figuring out what we wanted to eat. Pork medallions and steak done with... More

We decided to try this restaurant on our first night in Geneva. It's a bit out of the centre of town and a longer walk than it first appears, but public transport is good and was our choice on the return. Staff were friendly, lots of meals of the day which were quite good value. We both went with steaks,... More

Hidden in a quite street, never paid attention until my friend's recommendation. Really good food and friendly service. My favorite dish is 'flammbe whisky' (beef with whisky sauce). Big portion, can always add more French fries and vegetables without extra charges. Whatever plate you take, there is a salad with it, with home made salad sauce. Yami.... Normally close 1... More

This little hidden away restaurant was a fortunate find. It's perfect for a quiet & intimate meal with a friend, or even just dining alone. There always seems to be people from the neighborhood which creates a very familiar mood. Great food & great service too!
