We met up with friends from Australia for my 'special birthday' in Geneva. They booked La Matze on our hotel receptionists recommendation for local cuisine. The restaurant was quite busy which is always a good sign when so many around it were not. We could see fresh pizzas being made, people enjoying fondues but chose local dishes after our waitress...

As in all Geneva expensive for what it is, Pizza with some parma ham was 24chf and a demi carafe was 25chf so 49chf for one person. It was ok but not worth the money

Matze pizza was perfect. Big size, fair price range (18-24F for pizza). Fresh ingredients (nothing canned). Best I have had in a while. Solid meal and I didn't feel too full or heavy after. Service was friendly and attentive. Outdoor terrace was very nice. Close to train station. Great, filling meal the night before flying out. I saw other dishes... More

We wanted to have cheese fondue on our visit and happened using this restaurant. The restaurant was lovely, the staff was very friendly and attentive and the fondue was wonderful! So happy we found this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel (the Ibis Style) near the Gare Centrale. Easy walking distance. We were a party of 4. The ambiance was excellent, quite, not rushed, conducive to good conversation. The manager recommended a cod special which was out of this world! I also had a mixed salad which was quite tasty. They have a nice... More

Looking back over reviews in the last 3 1/2 years most are 4* with a few 3* or 5* and for me 4* is spot on. Nice friendly greeting and service. Pizza/Pasta dishes extensive alternatives less so. Food arrived quite quickly as we all had pizzas. Well presented no complaints. Desserts adequate. Price reasonable for location. Would return.

This restaurant is on a side street very close to the Geneva train station. We sat outside for dinner on a warm evening. They also have inside seating. I ordered the "fruit de mer" pizza. It was topped with tiny baby shrimp and mussels. It was good. I also wanted some ice water with my dinner. The server told us... More

Drop by for a nice no frills meal with very friendly service. The decor is 'rustic' and the food quite hearty. I ate an egg soup - superb; and a very good plate of lightly done perch. Very, very fresh. I was alone, but next time am with someone, I'd like to try their house specialty: the meat fondue.

This was our favourite restaurant when we visited Geneva. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The food was of good quality, nicely presented and reasonable priced (for Geneva). As a result we visited on three occasions eating different meals on each occasion.
