We went there and they were hosting a kids party in the yard. Clearly out of control they probably should have closed the place just for the party because kids were running all over the place screaming and making a big mess. Food took extremely long to come and there were no good service for other customer there. The good... More

Hello Elisa A- As the owner(s) of Geneva we want to share with you we are very sorry about your recent experience at Geneva. We agree with you wholly even during the many parties we have in our restaurant it's not acceptable to wait such a long time for a meal nor is it OK to have the kids running... More

Great cheese fondue, they have four different kinds and we enjoyed them all very much. Especially the one with the herbs in there is a must-try. The deserts were good too, especially the apple "doughnuts". Highly recommended with a very friendly staff!

Packed with expats this place offers you standard European meals, prepared at high quality. The staff is fluent in English and the kids are entertained on the ground floor and looked after. Decent pricing, personal approach en very nice food. Kids love the cheese fondue.

Spent a relaxed evening here outside seated and enjoyed the good food. Nice selection and the schnitzels, spaetzle, salads, cheese fondue all great. Service was also very attentive and friendly, quick, too. Happy hour until 1900. Unfortunately no more live music as neighbors complained but they still play music outside through speakers. Recommended place!

Swiss cooking is not very diverse, but the offer in Geneva is good, fondue is good, and rotit also. But the best is the Friday's special of Fish and Chips, only available then. Downstairs is s little noisy due to the children play ground. Upstairs is nice, also the terrace.

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
