Doesn't appear much from the outside, but has a great interior. Staff are friendly and service is good by anyone's standard, which makes it great for Geneva. Price is in line with restaurants alike in Geneva. Food is excellent, deserts all appeared homemade and has a great atmosphere and feel to it. Highly recommend.

Nothing to add, except there is little room for imperfection in this place. Service excellent, food as well of course. The second wine list is worth a try despite of the price. Highly recommend place

It's fast, good, tasty with the Lyonnais classics. A very nice always occupied Brasserie. Service is fast and efficient with a smile. You won't be disappointed if you are looking for a good Brasserie on the South Bank.

Got a call from friend who wanted to have dinner with couple friends and wanted me to join in, which I naturally accepted. This was my first time at the Boeuf Rouge. What a treat, this restaurant is just a pure French bistrot. Everything on the menu sounds amazing. We had a terrine display and a cervelle de Canuquet. As... More

I last ate in this restaurant in the early 1990s so I was interested to see how it would match up for an early Christmas get together. You need to book. Impeccable service. Delicious steak and a sinful black-forest gateau accompanied by a fine Spanish wine recommended by the waiter. my next visit will be much sooner.

The atmosphere is fantastic. Traditional decor, made with taste. The restaurant is an institution, and definitely for meat lovers. Not the place to go if you're after a quick healthy snack. The food is traditional and mainly of French inspiration. Also, don't go if you're in a rush; we were announced a 20 minutes wait, and had to wait 40.... More

We were staying opposite at The Eastwest Hotel and ate here to celebrate two special birthdays. I chose the set menu at 54 chf and the smoked salmon salad starter was delicious and very generous to share with my daughter. My husband and son shared the famous pan fried perch from the lake at 41 chf. The four of us... More

The taste and the quality of the food there can really make your day. I leave in Geneva for more than 4 years, up to now that is the best restaurant I have found. Getting such a nice meal for that price is something rare in this city. Very friendly and organized staff, speaking english. The atmosphere is very cosy.... More
