We visited this classic restaurant with a group of friends. We had table wine which was quite enjoyable considering the wine being affordable table wine. The original and classical beef was delicious. French fries and the sauce made it a dish of its own. The price is quite high, but that is something one has to assume when eating in... More

Definitely recommended for good steak, wine, and I really love their green salad as starters:)) The atmosphere is a bit noisy, but so cozy at the same time. You can get acquainted with the neighbors, as tables are located too close to each other:):)

Great old time restaurant. The place is an institution. The only thing they serve is entrecote (steak), salad and fries. And dessert. And beer, wine, drinks. The butter sauce on the steak is to die for. Simply delicious. I'm glad we ate there. Yummy.

Old school classic entrecote, very nice. The atmosphere makes it special but be aware they only have one menu (salad / entrecôte) and it is a bit pricey (42 euros the salad/entrecote). It is an institution in Geneva and if you can then do it !

We thought we would visit this restaurant as it was voted very highly among the Trip Advisor community and it wasn't overly expensive compared with most other restaurants in this city. We went on a Saturday night, and managed to get a table after waiting for around 5-10mins. This place is famous for their steak, sauce and fries so all... More

Don’t get me wrong, this is no hamburger place, it’s a proper, Paris Brasserie style restaurant and a one of a kind experience. You will only get one thing, and one thing only. Meat and French Fries. But what meat. Situated ten steps from the main train station, ideal for travelers arriving, or leaving. It’s that hearty, comfort food for... More

Cafe de Paris came highly recommended by a friend and I have to say I do like the nostalgia of it all. Great place to visit if travelling alone - very efficient service. I see all the comments about the wait staff but I think that is just cultural - I was happy with my service. The sauce is delicious... More

It's the only dish they serve: it's a steak, it's the way you ask to be cooked, and the meat is excellent.

The steak was superb. Lovely Swiss wine (cornalin I think it was called). Good atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
