The Café Contemporain can be hard to find. It is located on the ground floor of a big housing complex in the middle of Chene-Bougeries, near the Cologny tennis club. It is small and often quite packed but never overflowing. There is a nice terrace in the summer. The food is very good, with a diverse selection of dishes of... More

Main course for me was a... More

This is a local restaurant outside the city centre of Geneva, set in an apartment complex. However the interior is very classy and has apparently been styled on some restaurants in New York. The owner is the waiter - night and day - and service is friendly and efficient. Food is very good, prices are reasonable (by Swiss standards), and... More
