I was there for dinner several times, and fondue was always perfect, atmosphere is good, service polite and fast, not too flashy, not too fancy, but excellent food, simple location in the middle of the street.

This was the best place I found in the Cornavin area during a short stay. The food was excellent, my duck breast was cooked to perfection. The decor is charming, the interior is done out like a Swiss chalet with lots of wood. The highlight was the waiter who was multi tasking around ten tables while retaining his composure and... More

Nice, family style local place. I always have a dinner there when visiting Geneva. Shrimps are great there, as well as other Swiss dishes.

They aren't all flash and fancy, but this French restaurant showcase the quality, breadth and depth of French food, from dainty desserts to hearty peasant stews, freshly shucked oysters to fresh flaky pastries. As they say in France: l'escar-go!

Pizza was great and not terribly expensive. Pizza primavera was definitely large enough for two people to share.

We just reached Geneva and went out for lunch around our hotel. We found Au Petit Chalet a nice place for lunch in the sun: service was excellent, waiters are friendly and helpful. The burger and steak were great, the fries with their dressing were amazing but The salad is ok.

It is a small and very central trational foundue restaurant. You can try various fondues in here. The only thing, if you sit inside, you may smell cheese :)

We ate here two nights running as we so enjoyed our first meal here. It was very busy both evenings but the staff were very helpful and we didn't feel rushed. Food was good quality and in large portions. All the food was very good but the bacon rosti was my favourite. We didn't try the fondue but saw several... More
