As a solo traveler I look for old, vintage and friendly places to dine and Boeuf Rouge was all I was looking for in Geneva. The steak was tender and juicy but the chocolate cake was a little too sweet for my taste.

This is probably the best French restaurant in Geneva. Their home made pate is just divine. The restaurant waiters are all very friendly and offer excellent recommendations. This place is a must when in Geneva

Top French restaurant. Not necessarily the most expensive. Brasserie style with a super entrecote. Friednly open plan style with the buzz of happy diners.

Like most, almost all, Geneva restaurants, Bistrot du Bouef Rouge is little pricey, but the food is excellent, as is the service. The foie gras is outstanding, and, as an appetizer, there is plenty for more than one person.
