Popped into this lively restaurant on a Tuesday night while traveling from the Alps to the airport, instead of going to mcds. Very glad I did! Fast and attentive service, good value, excellent chicken, salad, chips.

Had a couple of friends out for a great dinner, quick service and nice variety. The curry chicken salad is excellent and the traditional grilled chicken with French fries and salad a tradition. Very economical is well (chf 75 for 3 all in).

Went on Sat - open without a break - its good value for Geneva but it focuses on a fast turnover of tables so not one you can not linger at the table. Short simple menu Roast chicken or Pork , Potatoe Wedges, Salad - 16 CHF Pay the extra for a gravy (Ma Cousine Sauce) 2.8 CHF

Before going to Geneva I looked on TripAdvisor at places to eat and this small restaurant chain was in the top 10. We called in earlier in the day to make a booking for 8pm as it was a Saturday and expected it to be busy, however, we could have walked in and got a table, it was very busy... More

Nice place, with prices really fair taking into account the average of the city. The specialty here is the roasted chicken, served with potatoes and salad. There’s also a good selection of salads, but I totally suggest to go for half a chicken or to have an entire one. The restaurant is not very big, hence I suggest to make... More

I went there with my wife and parents because we were craving chicken. Two of us wanted to have main courses and the remaining two wanted drinks and snacks, however, the wait staff was extremely rude and told us to leave if all four of us did not want to order main courses. The waitresses reasoning was that she will... More

Dear Muhammad Ahsan, We are sorry to hear that you had such an experience at Chez Ma Cousine and would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our staff tried to politely explain that you couldn't have a half-chicken for two which you didn't want to understand. Then, you got mad at them and decided... More

This is the place to go when you feel very hungry. They serve half a chicken, a plate of pommes (potatoes) and a salad. They ask you if you would like the hot sauce take it as its good. Its reasonable priced as well. I like the small cave like feel. Right in the old town.

Compared to other restaurants in Geneva I would consider this restaurant to be cheap and tasty! We had half of a chicken with fries and salad and another Thai salad. Not to forget the secret sauce of the restaurant. The chicken was full of flavors and moist. The salad was fresh and crunchy. We ended up paying 41 euros including... More
