Great food and view, but not open to public unless you someone in the UN system who can bring you in. Great place.

There are several cafeterias scattered around the UN buildings in Geneva, but only one with a stunning view! The cafeteria where I work at the International Environment House is consistently rated at the bottom of the bunch, while the WMO cafeteria is in the top notch category. So whenever I'm able to zoom across town on my bike at lunchtime,... More

I tried to go here recently and found that this restaurant is no longer open to the general public. You need a UN badge to get in now. It's a shame as the views were great. I'm sure that the food is till good for those lucky enough to be able to go there. My rating reflects my disappointment about... More

This is one of the most popular cafeterias among UN civil servants. Colleagues working at the Palais would take walks to the WMO cafeteria in the summer. Food is solid and the building is environmentally friendly.

Hot and cold choices, salad bar, variety of drinks in a cafeteria setting. Vegetarian bake and iced tea came to 14 Chf. A island of relative normality in a sea of ridiculous prices. Nice views on a clear day as is on the 8th floor.

My husband gave a talk at the WMO headquarters recently so we got to try the cafeteria. The place is nice and clean and the views of the mountain and lake are very nice. Food selection was good. The two options we selected were good and the quality of the food was good too. Prices seemed a bit high for... More

Enjoy a enjoyable lunch with a big variety of choices. You can enjoy a lunch at the cafeteria with a view over the lake. The cafeteria has a range of food to choose from. Enjoy a salad, fish of Indian quinine what ever you feel like with something sweet. Round it off with a nice cup of coffee of your... More

The view from the eighth floor is quite nice. Food is good by cafeteria standards. Since you are in Europe, do have wine with your lunch.

It has nice view, and open to anyone with ID, no need to have UN Badge. The food is OK. There is always vegetarian menu. Less possibility for vegan. The price is standard for UN Canteen. Better to sit in the north terasse since the view of the south one is dominated by the construction work. It is close at... More
