Great if you like entrecote with Cafe de Paris butter and French fries. Starter of green salad and fair wine by the glass. Ask for the wine of the month. Great, fast service in a cosy, good vibe atmosphere. The Cafe de Paris butter is great and extra helpings of fries are served. Good selection of desserts. Great restaurant for... More

I was hanging around with my husband and we decided to enter into this restaurant. I remembered seeing it, but was not attracted by it. It was my husband's decision. We sat in a huge room full of tables. The waiter just asked us how we wanted our meat and if we wanted something to drink. Ten minutes a nice... More

Actually, you have no choice: entrecôte served with French fries and salad. 42.5 CHF. That's it! The dressing (butter with thin herbs) makes this dish unique. As most of the restaurants offering shortened menus, quality is there with fresh ingredients and fast service. My meat was really tender and well cooked (rare). I found the dressing a bit fatty. Salad... More

One of the most classic places in Geneva that every traveller has to be there once. I was there first time with my father 40 years ago and today I got the same feeling, even better. You will not choose the dish only the cooking point of the meat that will have some salad and pommes frites as side dish.... More

The choice is easy: you only need to decide how well cooked you want the steak and what to drink with your meal. The staff is very efficient. reservations recommended

I had lunch at Cafe de Paris and it was excellent. The steak frites was great and the desserts were also very good. The service was friendly and efficient.

They only served sirloin steak with green salad and french fries. You could ask for more fries or bread. The steak were amazing with the herbed butter. Staffs were pretty friendly.

Had not returned in a while to what I consider on of my favorite restaurants in Geneva and as usual was not disappointed. Best salad (yet the simplest) you can get if you like vinaigrette sauce that is. Meat and fries are always outstanding. Always a pleasure to come here especially out of regular hours when it is quieter.

Cafe de Paris is a well known place in Geneva serving an excellent dish-but only one-entrecote with its own secret Cafe de Paris butter mix. It tastes good if you don't eat it too often. Service is fast and you get extra pommes frites. It is usually quite noisy but still cosy. You would guess that given the very rational... More

Great food spoiled by a shocking waitress who was beyond anything I have ever seen before. Her attitude was horrific. As many have said the food and steak is amazing so please go for this. As for the blonde waitress who was serving 9/12/16 early evening you need to have a think about if being a waitress is for you.... More
