I just love this place - I can see some real mixed reviews but I can honestly say this place is amazing (and really I'm referring to the food). I would highly recommend anything they have on the menu that is slow cooked - they...More

I have visited Cafe du Centre about once a year for the last 10 years and I always enjoyed its Parisian brasserie style, neat white tablecloths, classical but well done food and affordable prices. It's the first time I went there in the summer, and...More

An institution in Geneva. As the name indicates, it is bang in the middle of town. For many many years this has been a favourite for local and tourist. I have always had an excellent meal at this restaurant, and this weeks visit was no...More

The location was great. Went there twice for breakfast. In the morning it is not crowded but gets packed for lunch and dinner. It is relaxing in the morning to sit and enjoy the city while sipping your coffee. They have good breakfast special option....More
