I recommend to make a reservation in advance cause we went to this restaurant on a Friday night and it was completely full. Many people who did not reserve where sent away. The houmous as starter was very good. I liked a lot the tajine with lamb and aubergines. The Libanese dish was good but the meat was not special.... More

Very nice place, always crazily packed with excellent Lebanese food right behind the train station in Geneva. You don't have to finish your dish as they can prepare you a doggybag! Service is pretty slow (as it is packed) though.

Tasty and fresh couscous made with high attention to details. For the dessert the Mouhalabia, flan maison à base de fleur d’oranger et cardamome , was rich with flavors and well balanced , not so sweet. A wide range of plates are available. You can select between Carte Marocaine and Carte Libanaise. The waiters were so friendly and hospitable. Nomades... More

They make the best cous-cous in Geneve. It is almost always full, so if you are planning to go, reserve a table ahead of time.

Very friendly and sincere greeting and great care of all those dining while we were there having a fabulous pair of Lamb and Chicken Tajine. We will definitely return to this fine restaurant!

The food at Nomades is tasty and nicely presented. Not to waste anything, the price is fair and to the point. I have a preference for the mezze plate (there is one of them with a vegetarian option which is excellent). I have found the vegetables in the couscous slightly overcooked. Anyway, I still highly recommended this place for lunch!

The restaurant has 2 type of menus, Moroccan, mostly tajines, and Lebanese. I ordered the chicken with yogurt that came served with many other dishes I associate with the Lebanese cuisine, which made me opt out of starter. The plate was simply huge and I could not finish it all but oh so delicious. Too full to have a traditional... More

We stopped by this restaurant simply because we have been attracted by the nice and warm atmosphere of the interiors. It has been a very good surprise to discover also the excellent food (we selected the lebanese dishes) and the very kind service. Highly recommended.

I came here one lunchtime with a friend. It was quite busy but we were quickly seated and presented with the menu. There is lots of choice and I ordered the honey chicken plate. It was massive with lots of different accompliments. Food was really tasty and I loved it. Highly recommended.
