We visited this bistro after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was my husbands 50th birthday so we were happy to spend a lot more than we would normally on a meal. Our waiter George was super-friendly and the atmosphere was great - cosy and relaxed. Every part of the meal was beautifully cooked and presented. we loved it!

I have been eating to the Boeuf Rouge for the past 10 years on a regular basis - and it has always been a pleasure. It is surely among my top 5 restaurants in Geneva. And if it not cheap (you are in Geneva), this place is authentic, not only from his interior design where you could believe you just... More

reservation imperative for lunch, dinner almost the same. Great food, wonderful service.Tables for four , well placed but tables for two are very close to each other. Not a cheap restaurant but prices are correct given the quality.

Right in the center of Geneva, this is a place you won't regret. Great service, staff is always there for you. I found the menu quite nice, simple with enough choices. Apparently, it is as old as the place itself (you don't touch a winning team). The food was amazing, very good portions! The bill was no surprise and aligned... More

The food was ok. But as it should be in resto, it should be ok or even better. Here-geneva style, which is overprice for everything , even regular thing. Place is kind of reputable, so additional price on it. Service without efforts, even less. Woudnt come back even tho food was OK. Almost 400chf for 3 person with 1 bottle... More

Nice place with outdoor seating too. It offers mainly Italian dishes with other variety dishes. Their plates are considerable large compared to other restaurants in Geneva and their prices are if range.

From the Trip advisor tips, we thought this was a mid-range price restaurant but it was not. The food was amazing and the service was splendid. Very nice staff.

When you see a restaurant full of locals every night, you know there must be a good reason for it. I was staying in a hotel across the street and was going to eat there on my 'night one' in Geneva. But seeing how packed it was I decided to give it a skip. On the following night, however, I... More
