This restaurant takes a little getting used to. One item on the menu, it is put on a dish on a rechaud (see picture on top) and you are on your own. It has been like this forever, and many tourists are confused. You have to finish the meat yourself and then serve yourself. The Genevois are used to it... More

First time in this restaurant. The service was terrible, no insights on the specialities, no wine list, food was average. Summer is coming but they were not welcoming at all. Looks like experiencing the icy wind during winter in Geneva. This place is supposed to be something traditional but it has only the name from Paris. There are clearly better... More

The Cafe de Paris is like Marmite (for those who do not know what this is, sorry - you either like it or hate it). For me, when I visit, the Cafe de Paris is a regular experience, as it is for many Genevois, and you can come here and sit shoulder to shoulder with a cross section of the... More

Single item menu. The steak was ok but we weren't 100% sure what cut of meat that was. Flank? We were pretty sure it was beef :) The service was terrible. The waitress certainly made us feel as though we were inconveniencing her and she was doing us a favour by occasionally serving us (after significant delays).

One of the best place to have steak in Geneva. This pace only do one thing...Steaks, fries and salad. You will he asked one question? How do you want your meat? Somewhat pricey but always perfect. Eat there every time I travel to Geneva.

Appalling service, arrogant staff, no menu choice (only one item available) and expensive. We left before ordering food as the service and options were truly awful.

When we have people coming from abroad, it's always a good and safe choice to take them here for a steak because of the special delicious buttery sauce and the perfect French fries. We know what we will get each time, and we never get disappointed. Service is professional, staffs are very friendly and attentive although there are always a... More

I first visited this place many years ago and thought that the steak was great. Now I was invited by a few friends to visit this restaurant in a more business-like setting. I guess I didn't experience the same excitement as the first time, but I think it's a pretty good choice for a steak, they cook it a little... More
