Great cooking with generous portions. Caesar salad was great, and so was duck liver pate. Creamy and soft, reminds me of Lyonnais cooking. Lovely...

I was recommended this place by the hotel and i had a very satisfying dinner. The meat is tasty and there is a wide choice of wines.

We came here on a Saturday looking at the "$" trip advisor price rating because we were searching for something inexpensive after eating so much pricey food in Geneva. This restaurant is actually quite expensive (more like $$), but the bistro (separate from the restaurant) is inexpensive and is only open weekdays. We explained that the restaurant prices ($68 for...

We are staying in the Royal hotel to which Le Duo is attached and they were offering a special Valentine dinner. 5 course plus amuse Bouche and petit fours and a cocktail for around £60 per head. Considering the restaurant is in an hotel and we generally find these are lacking in ambience we were pleasantly surprised. The tables are... More

I'm not convinced that I was served the proper ingredient. Iberico has a nutty and heavenly flavour and what I got was a salty mess. Service was excellent. Also not sure about ambiance, big windows facing a major street mean lots of passerbys looking in at you eating, Good, tasteful music. Disappointing Saturday night dinner for us.

One of the best meals on our European trip. This 5 star delight is in the lobby of the Royal Manotel. It is adjacent to the Bistro. It is an elegant setting.

Amazing smoked salmon salad and really good service. The lunch was simple and superb. Europe at its finest. I loved the caper berry and preserved meats, the coffee was smoky and perfect.

After a conference at the Graduate Institute we had dinner at Le Duo. The restaurant was chosen because it is conveniently close to a tram stop (15). What a nice surprise.

The place is quite classy, with professional, English-speaking waiters and nicely-designed dishes. The food was very good but not too inspiring. We were served a burnt gnocchi which, I hope, was an accident. Prices are in the medium-high range. Still, an excellent dinner and night out! Would definitely return there.

Description
It takes talent to dream up a "quick gourmet break" meeting the constraints of short time-frames. For Le Bistro, the chef Armel Bedouet has concocted a gourmet moment based on respecting the generosity of artisan-style produce. Tasty and original interpretations of classic French brasserie dishes accompanied by Geneva and Swiss wines compose a delicious menu. Le Bistro is the natural destination for friendly meals and business lunches offering a wealth of reassuring culinary references.
