It's many years that we go to Brasserie Lipp, a place where the food is always of good quality, wine well selected and service impeccable. Our preferred place to celebrate family events, meet with friends, and business occasions. Good variety of dishes. Excellent fish.

Food and ambience are good. Menu seemed very comprehensive but not too big you were overwhelmed. Service was ok, but again you get the feeling they have better things to do than serve you, which isn't unusual in Geneva. But when I hit 0 tip on the card machine I got a massive groan from the waiter and he threw... More

The restaurant has a wide selection of menu, mostly seafood. The oysters and mussels are delicious. Also, you may enjoy the extensive wine card.

As everyone mentioned about oysters and sausage, all are good. My rock fish soup is also recommended especially when you are tired. Service is excellent.

Brasserie Lipp never disappoints. Seafood paradise, with oysters the main attraction. Also a good variety of traditional dishes and meat. Excellent service. Book in advance, very popular and busy restaurant.

We were keen to sample the Geneva version of this famous Paris name... it did not disappoint, both in terms of the excellent menu, nor the 'brusque' Brasserie service one is used to in French brasseries! But, that's part and parcel of the deal, so sit back and enjoy the excellent menu! Stayed with brasserie favourites... oysters and an excellent... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always very good, very popular and very consistent. This is a long-time Geneva place with a slightly strange entry (upstairs in a downtown shopping center). Great seafood and oysters, very good steaks and excellent high-end bistro food. Waiters are very efficient and friendly and there is a very good wine list.

What do you do when you think you have lost wallet and then it is returned to you intact? You go and spend the time and money saved at Lipp. Accompanied by a cold Saint Saphorin chasselas we had a plate of 18 oysters (three different varieties) and some king crab and "bulots". Prepared perfectly (no "grit" in the oysters")... More
