Crab & Lobster were tasty but expected something more for the high pricing. Didn't particularly stand out. Creme Brûlée desert was seriously good, as were the profiteroles.

We eat here and in their branch in Zurich every time we go to Switzerland, four or five times a year. The food is good and there is a good atmosphere. My only issue is the staff asking if I wished to add the service charge when paying with a card. The swiss include service and I will always leave... More

We were late looking desperately for a place for lunch on Christmas Eve, and chanced upon this gem. Vibrant atmosphere, very busy even at 3 pm and really good efficient service. The oysters and mussels were excellent - our best meal this holiday!

One of my top 5 restaurants for 2016 having been at the Lipp 3 times during 2016 and while on business travel in Geneva. Outstanding menu selection for both lunch and dinner. The very best Veal Milanese outside of Milan. Order with mashed potatoes and a glass of house red and you cannot go wrong. The Dover sole is also... More

Lipp is a classic, both in Geneva and Zurich. The one in Geneva doesn't look inviting from the outside but this shouldn't put anybody off. Once in, one feels in an authentic brassiere with a nice decor, French service and most importantly a classical menu. Quality is constantly good and the wine list is also very good. A very good...

Brasserie Lipp was recommended for light, late lunch about 3.00pm on Saturday afternoon by our hotel receptionist. Not easy to find unless you know it is 2nd floor of Confederation Centre. Signage is not their strong point! However it was excellent experience. Scallpos in lobster sauce followed by mussels. All very good and full of flavour. God choice of wines... More

The venue is centrally located at the confederation centre, right in the city centre. There is a warm brasserie atmosphere with wood panels, padded benches and chandeliers. One can sit inside or at the terrace, however, the tables are too close together. The seafood is absolutely delicious and there are excellent wines on offer. The wiener schnitzel and the choucroute... More
