This restaurant may be deceiving from the street. Looks like more of a bar, but in the back is a very elegant dining area. The staff were excellent and fun. This restaurant has apparently been open for a long time (since 1967, I think) and seems like a bit of an institution. I had the filet de perches which the... More

We went the on Monday May 30. Location was great for us, the is an underground parking lot right next to La Coupole. Service was excellent, food was good and it was the right place for a business meeting. It is a quiet restaurant and you are not too close from your next table neighbor. Price is reasonable for Geneva.... More

La Coupole has been in Geneva as long as I can remember, and I return eagerly every year for the Entrecôte. The steak is delicately prepared and the beurre coupole is unforgettable. The fries are perfectly fried and soak up the sauce with ease! I usually like my steaks medium rare, but that can be a little risky in Europe.... More

At first the place looked more like a bar from the street, but near the end of the restaurant part they've got a very cosy and nicely decorated room with a sort of Italian setting. The filets de perches were excellent, as per other reviews here, and the waiters were top notch. I'd recommend it.

La Coupole offers almost always the same Menu but it a pleasure to go their. The options are attractive, I recommend you the "Degustation" plate. The selection of wine is also nice. Decoration is comfortable and the service friendly. A place to go if you pass by Geneva.

A friend and I went for dinner recently to La Coupole and as usual I was impressed by the friendly reception one receives upon arrival and the politeness and efficiency of the staff throughout the meal. For starters I had goose liver with fig jam which was good and my friend had salmon tartare which he enjoyed. As a main... More

This is an old Geneva classic (for decades) which I discovered it a few years ago. The decor is a bit faded, so it doesn't attract the "in-crowd", but that's their loss :-) The menu gives 4-5 choices for each part of the meal, which in my book is a good thing, I usually don't see much reason to get...
