I have been there with a guest on a day where the Christmas-market on Place St. François had already started. We had an early start - 18:30 and the restaurant was, not astonished for the time, empty. Unfortunately we had a bad start already as we needed to look for someone to seat and serve us. That evening the restaurant... More

Very good service, fait and Nice welcome, good entrecôte with good desserts, menu is limited to meat and one salad, but if your intention is to have meat, you are not disappointed, just a pity was no heating due to a technical issue, but nothing to do with the restaurant

Very quick service, staff very friendly. Food was good and the price correct for the area. We had a steak and fries, which was good, but maybe a bit on the small side. The brasserie is a bit hidden behind the bakery in front, so I did not know until now that there was a restaurant back there :)

This is the little sister of the famous Café de Paris restaurant in Geneva. Same menu, you can only eat an "entrecôte" (lean steak) with the famous butter and spices sauce "Café de Paris", (secret recipe!) accompanied by excellent fries and a green salad. The Café de Paris has been around as long as I can remember, and the quality... More

I ate at this Brasserie several time in the past few years and am very pleased with the quality of food, ambience and the service offered. It is delightful that this restaurant has consistent standards.

For those who are used to the famous restaurant in Paris or even Geneva, this is not the same. Meat not as tender, soggy French fries and poor atmosphere makes us decide to better stick to the original.

We have been eating in this reastaurant already and their food is excellent, keeping in mind that you basically have only two menus. But the last two times we arrived and wanted to eat we have been asked if we did reserve which we had to negate. The first time was, to a certain extent, understandable as the reataurant looked...

If you want to eat entrecôte de boeuf, this is the place. I mean, they only serve this. It's at place st.francois, but you enter through a cafe downstairs, so we didn't know where to enter. I like to come here time to time. I feel like I am in Paris, because of its decoration. They are always good!
