After reading TA reviews, we made a reservation (a must) and went here. Naturally I had steak and was served a large steak with duck Fois gras on top. It was served properly cooked as ordered, delicious and with great potatoes and spinach. My wife's huge pork chop was similarly great. Service was helpful and friendly. And the maitre d... More

First night I turned up (a Wednesday) it was packed out and not a table to be had, so booked for the following evening and pleased I did. This restaurant is a classic, not changed for decades and long may it continue. Heavy emphasis on classical cuisine and grills and a joy to watch dish after dish of beautiful steaks... More

Make sure you make a reservation beforehand. I went there for dinner on a Tuesday evening and people were being sent away as it was fully booked. Food was delicious and service was very friendly. It's not cheap but worth it... had the entrecôte, 2 glasses of wine and dessert and paid 80chf

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner with my dad at Bistro du Boeuf Rouge. The dish I ordered was creatively presented and tasted great. I liked the cook on the meat and the lentil salad packed a lot of flavors. The portion was pretty big and I had trouble finishing it. The restaurant is of moderate size and truly set up... More

One of the best restaurants in Geneva, with very attentive servers. We felt like we were the most important guests in the place, and I am guessing everybody else felt like that too. He was able to recommend the best choice for us. The food was wonderful! We will deninietly come back!

We were very lucky to get a table, arriving just after they opened. They were otherwise fully booked. The steak and venison were wonderful and the onion soup superb. Good wine and desserts too and excellent service. Will definitely return.
