Business associate took me there to watch the World Cup. It was fantastic to watch Portugal win it there. The chef was clearly well trained and travelled. The food was executed in a delicious way - balanced fresh and flavorful. The staff were on top of all and very kind. Great service, good prices and great food make this a... More

this is one of our mostly preferred French cuisine. Has its own cave that you can select personally your own wine from the cellar. And the food is good, especially tartare de bouef if you like raw meat. Otherwise, others are also good. Nothing good is cheap in Geneva, so dinner for two is roughly with wine is around 150...

A great little wine bar with typical brasserie food and some revisited classics. An excellent wine selection from classic Swiss and European vineyards as well as some delightful new discoveries from smaller bio properties. The Foie Gras is to die for as is the Cote de Boeuf, 400grams of pure grilled pleasure. the lasagna is also great. A great place... More

Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior, Au Coin du Bar is actually a decent sized restaurant with traditional French bistrot decor inside and Geneva's best kept secret a cigar room downstairs... where you can have your digestive and enjoy a nice cigar indoors in the confines of this restaurant. Probably the only restaurant with such feature in Geneva. Food,... More

A good friend of mine recommended me this bistro type restaurant. I was quite surprised by the level of prices which did not really matched the cheap atmosphere of the place. We began by a very decent foie gras made in house accompanied by a salad just a little overdressed. My lasagna was good, not delicious, but no complain about... More

Go see Vincent and his amazing team at Au Coin du Bar for a proper Geneva experience. We always sit at the bar, order the same thing and let Vincent choose our wines. Also... ask him about the cave ;-)

Whenever I am in Geneva I always try to come here. It is not a big place and a reservation is a must. Lunch is always a buzz and it is popular with business people. The menu is extensive and all the dishes have a "home cooked" touch to them. The Foie Gras is always of top quality and the... More

A small convenient restaurant. more fo a business lunch than a romatic dinner. Friendly staff and good choices of wine. The meat is great.

French bistro with great cote de boeuf and wine selection. If you ask you can go to their cave and choose your own your wine. Definitely worth as they have an excellent selection of Bordeaux and cote du Rhone.
