This was our first time at Chez Arsène, and we loved it! Adorable belle-époque deco, warm, attentive service, and delicious food. We went for the plat du jour with soup to start and it was fabulous... fresh, nice presentation, flavorful, and good value for money....More

Excellent tartare of tuna fish (but the steak was just as good), tasty deserts, perfect St Joseph wine. Attentive & friendly service. A very nice place for dinner with friends.

I read about this restaurant in a local magazine and was expecting something special - it wasn't. the decor was rather bizarre and it was summed up by the cold plate of ready bought fries that were served with the main course

Not a bad restaurant - fairly standard Geneva standard and prices but after seeing a good billing in 'l'Illustré' (local magazine) I was expecting more.

I discovered chez Arsene in the quartier of Eaux Vives in Geneva by chance last time I was in town. Hidden in an alleyway off the main tram street stands this gem of a bistro that will most certainly please any Parisian brasserie type food...More
