Staying just across the road in a hotel while in Geneva. Was such a great find as I speak no French and there English was great. Had some food while there and it was the best burger I've tasted in a long while

This place has a welcoming atmosphere that is rare for Geneva. Our waitress was friendly and cheerful. Being a Monday it was not crowded, but service was still a little slow. An English friend who lives nearby by and I went for fish and chips, but they were out. They were also out of the IPA on tap I wanted... More

It's a real Irish pub in Geneva. Guinness, Kilkenny, shepherds pie and burgers! With a great selection of beer and wine and rock music pumping from the speakers this place is amazing. Service is usually fast and friendly. Downside is it can get incredibly busy especially if a game is on, and sometimes they run out of things (like Guinness).... More

I discovered this amazing pub a few years ago already and had many great nights out there! Friendly staff, great burgers and incredible atmosphere! It's one of the best places in geneva to go for a relaxed night out to drink a couple of beers in a warm and friendly environment.

I had to give back the IPA. It was watery and did not taste like an IPA at all. The good side: the waitress took it back after reassuring that they do not water down the beer. I just ordered a Pilsner and that was OK. The fish and chips tasted fishy, I didn't complain in order not to sound... More
