It's a local culture of Geneva, but with big portions. You'll find meat and potatoes or pasta. Good options as Starters for sharing. Staff very friendly. Nice enviroment. Very crowded, so make a reservation before.

This is a fantastic little and simple place! Decent size menu with various steaks, cordon bleu, seasonal special of "chasse". Service was friendly and quick, prices are below Geneva prices for food like that. Booking will be necessary as it's quite busy. Will certainly go back.

Loud, yet cosy, very affordable with great portions and amazing quality of food. Very unpretentious, but this is its charm!

We attended this restaurant because it came up with so many good reviews on Trip Adviser. As others have said, it is away from the tourist area and is a place for locals. We called ahead to book which was a good thing because while we were there, others were turned away. The food is delicious and very good value.... More

6 of us went there for a family dinner. We got a friendly welcome and 2 large plates of parma ham to start, free of charge. We all ordered something different and all were very happy with the food. Be warned, big helpings, don't eat before you go!

Hands down favorite for best food:price ration in Geneva. We always take our visitors here so they can have a feel for the "real" Geneva. This isn't glitzy rich people stuff, it's a cafe with absolutely delicious food for unbelievable prices in Geneva, which, if you know anything about Geneva, is akin to finding a unicorn. Reservations are a must... More

This small restaurant in Charmilles is definitely not for those who are looking for a romantic evening with gourmet dishes; however, if you're on a night out with friends and want to eat a nice big piece of meat in a funny, relaxed and noisy place, without spending much, then it's the perfect spot. The menu is not very big... More

Discovered this place through some Geneva born and raised friends. It's a local dive that offers meat and other Swiss specialities (read: fondue) for a reasonable price in a good atmosphere. It's neither a gourmet or sophisticated place, but it's good place to go when you want a good steak or home-made cordon bleu and no frills.

This place is awesome. Incredible choice of food, local specilalities and meat. The quality of the meat is excellent and the sauces are very tasty as well. The service is very friendly and quick. The sitting is bistrot style and is just a bit noisy when full of people, which happens everyday! Recommend it to absolutely anyone who is not... More
