Our family tradition is to eat at Cafe de Paris coming back from the Alps and before flight home. Especially because our kids love the food and insist on eating here and nowhere else in Geneva. The food has never disappointed us, always delicious and...More

Not good at all. Meat not tender. Overpriced. The sauce is to greasy and portions are not big. The place is nice looks like a Paris bistrot

It’s is really interesting to basically not have any choice but...steak (entrecôte) with butter sauce (too good, definitely too good) and french fries (just perfect ones...) in this restaurant / bistro. Apart from that main dish, just dessert...everything of high quality and at a good...More

The restaurant sells the butter sauce right there. Better to call first to be sure they have stocks.
