It has to be 5 stars. Unusually for us, we skipped starters and went straight for the Chateaubriand to share. It's not cheap, but I can say it's probably the best steak I've ever had. It looked like thick slices of roast beef,  melted in...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.

Wonderful home cooked food in a very traditional restaurant. A family run restaurant friendly and well worth a visit. Must book as it is a busy place. Expensive , but Geneva is !

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.

Hi, we're from the States and visiting Switzerland for the first time in July. We'll be in Geneva for just a few nights and very interested in visiting Bistro du Boeuf Rouge based on all the positive reviews! Two questions: 1. Is the menu available in English? 2. Is it possible to make reservations? Thanks!
