This place has not changed in 30 years, and it is still excellent: the service is attentive, the menu traditional with excellent fish and seafood, as well as traditional choucroute and meat. Location inside the Confederation Centre in the center of Geneva is not so great, but it is always packed - reserve ahead.

This is how I expected this Brasserie restaurant to be; cozy, traditional with a pleasant Brussels brasserie like atmosphere. The service was very efficient, loved the humour & friendly banter from our waitress. The food is great. The menu is extensive but I tried several dishes and all were very good (especially the escargots and the mussels). I would definitely... More

Perhaps a long time ago, Brasserie Lipp was a place to come to for a beer, but now it's a seafood and traditional local food restaurant. Set in the old town, neither the town centre nor the office block location of this restaurant exude anything particularly old. Tastefully decorated with a wood and gold chrome interior in the main restaurant... More

I wasn't blown away by Lipp , but it was enjoyable . My first tip is that if your waiter speaks poor English or you don't understand the seafood selection on the menu get up and look at the counter outside ...... not only will it make you even hungrier but you'll then be able to ask for what you...

The restaurant has the cozy, traditional and pleasant atmosphere of a french brasserie. The service was very efficient and friendly. The food is good. The menu is extensive (even sashimi!) but I tried several dishes and all were very good (especially the escargots and the mussels).

A good atmosphere in a traditional setting and very busy . However, rock fish soup was quite pleasant but very filling and it was served hot . Prawn starter was just that . Frozen prawns and a fairly standard ' I could that ' sauce . Calves liver was fine but the veal escalope so average as to be '... More

Be aware, the restaurant is inside a shopping centre, though with an open air terrace. The restaurant was very busy. Despite this the service was very attentive and quick. The menu is good and varied, so lots to choose from. The wine list is very Swiss based - naturally, but again, a good choice. Smarter than the usual tourist eatery,... More
