This wonderful restaurant, which used to be a favourite lunch hangout for my colleagues and me, has remained a wonderful place to reunite. It has moved to Rue Pradier and changed its name to 'Le Pradier (what else?). SO the one drawback it had of a slightly seedy location has now been remedied, and I can recommend it whole-heartedly for... More

Stayed at Hotel Admiral walked all over Geneva to find a good restaurant only to find it was right on our doorstep. Friendly helpful staff and excellent choice of buffet food and the owner gave us each a chocolate rabbit before we left. Loved the place.

The location on the border between the business district and the red-light district is probably the reason the value for money is so good. I have tried to calculate how they can possibly serve such an extensive, varied, lavish buffet for the low prices they charge, and a low rent is the only explanation I can think of. Once inside,...

Terrific Buffet, dozens of cold and hot dishes plus a huge cheese display and deserts like you won't believew--twenty to thirty desserts to choose from. Plus a full a la cartee menu.

We had a meal here opposite our hotel for our last evening during a 10 day Swiss holiday. It was excellent: located in a red light district of Geneva it is in an unlikely street for a first class restaurant but we were so glad we found it. Service from the start was excellent with a very cute young waiter... More

Nice Friday night seafood buffer for just CHF 52. Atmosphere ok but gets too crowded after 9-10 pm.

I have mixed feelings on this restaurant. On the positive side, the service is good and friendly, and the food can be excellent and very good value. On the negative side, the location is very bad (in a neighbourhood where prostitutes are on every corner), the clientéle includes high-scale prostitutes and gigolos (an interesting view for visitors perhaps, but not...
