Brasserie Lip is in Old Town Geneva, tucked just behind a main shopping street. Big, active restaurant, with lots going on at all of the tables. We had mussels for an appitiezer, which were outstanding. All in all, the food was good, very traditional French. Seemed like mostly locals.

Brasserie Lipp is one of my favourite places to have dinner in Geneva. Nice relaxing atmosphere, great food, prices are not cheap but for the quality of food you get, i believe they are decent. ideal for business dinner, casual dinner. Be sure you make a reservation beforehand as it can get very busy after 8pm.

An excellent restaurant which is lively at all hours. A destination for visitors and locals alike due to the very attentive service and wide variety of dishes including seafood. It can be noisy due to hard floors and lowish ceilings, but there are quieter corners and a large outdoor terrace, covered in the winter by a tent.

As the grey november month drags on, the wintergarden of Lipp is the best place to forget your autumn depression - it is done up in bright autumn colours and the food and service are as good as ever. Our companions indulged in seafood (oysters and urchins), my wife had artichokes and I had the medium sized choucroute. All delicious... More

I have been coming here for years and it's always good. The food is great, a wide choice on the menu with some classics and always some new, seasonal things too. There are some good vegetarian options too, couscous aux legumes is my favourite. The wine is excellent and the waiters are super professional, knowledgeable and kind. Be sure to... More

We went there for seafood and it was a great choice. Food was delicious starting from oysters, through mussels and finishing with a lobster. We came there early, at 7,thus it was calm and the server had a lot of time for us. At aroud 8 it got very busy, and the waiters started running around, with hardly any time... More

Cosy little restaurant on the main shopping street and uncommonly open on a Sunday. Great for people watching and dinner with friends, although quite expensive for the quality of the food.

Best mussels to be found in Geneva, but also great seafood and fish. Service fast and friendly, despite the place is always full. Reservation a must, open 7/7. Wine list extensive and ...expensive !
