Whilst on a recent trip to Geneva, my wife and I were determined to try a local cheese fondue. We stumbled across des Antiquaires whilst exploring the romantic and pretty Old Town. We ate al fresco watching others slowly roaming the relaxed cobbled street. Service was very good with what appeared to be the owner of the establishment attending to... More

The lady who took my reservation and who welcomed us was absolutely lovely, and very kind. The service was generally very good and curteous. I was having dinner with a friend and we remained to chat for over an hour after we had finished eating, and no one pushed the bill on us, so the evening was wonderful. The only... More

Just had a huge portion of blanquette de veau à l'ancienne (old fashioned) preceded by a generously served salad for an attractive 18 francs. The thing about this place is that every single ingredient is delicious. Probably the best bread you will ever taste too. This is a key info since their fondue is considered by most in the old...

We saw this restaurant whilst walking around the old town, but my son was keen for us to try the Chicken place round the corner which, sadly, did not work out (see separate review). So glad we ended up here, though, as the service was attentive with pleasant, service oriented polite members of staff - It was a warm evening,... More

Can never resist fondue when I'm in Switzerland. If it then comes at a reasonable price, at a nice venue and with a smile...perfect!

Located in one of the arteries of the Old Town, this restaurant has a nice terrasse and more importantly on a hot day it is totally shaded from the sun at lunch time and has a breeze running through the street the entire time i sat to eat. Ate "tendrons de veau" (stewed veal) with tagliatelles with a salad starter.... More

Ordered the pavé de boeuf sauce morilles with fries served with a green salad starter included and it was delicious plus the brilliant service from the experienced Benito who just knows how to make you feel welcome and at home. Highly recommended!
