Beautiful Geneva is a city which is dear to my heart. I did spend some of the best time of my life during the three years I have lived there. Despite being a small city, Geneva is a wonderful town offering tons of activities at any time of the year. But here is the list of the top 10 best things I loved doing when living in this incredible city.
Do not ask for a menu at this restaurant because there is none. Le Relais de l’Entrecote offers one simple formula only which consists of a salad, entrecote served with a herb & butter sauce and french fries.
You and your friends are craving to try a typical Swiss dish other than fondue? But do not know what else is available that could offer the same convivial aspect to your meal? Charbonnade is the answer! And the best place to have it is at La Taverne du Valais.
Do you feel like being pampered? If your answer is yes, the luxurious five star Hotel President Wilson invites you to its famous Sunday brunch starred Michel Roth. Meet your friends and family for a royal brunch at the finest hotel of Geneva and enjoy a gourmet moment with a view on Geneva lake.
Paku Paku is a trendy Japanese restaurant located in Carouge, a cute little neighborhood of Geneva. Despite its remote location from the city center, this isakaya – bistro in Japanese – is often fully booked and it won’t take you long to understand the reason why.
Restaurant Edelweiss is a secret restaurant in Geneva that not many of its residents know about. It is as secretly kept as a speakeasy – if you exclude the fact that tourists are very aware of this hidden gem. In fact, it is the main restaurant of Hotel Edelweiss Manotel which is located in the quirky area of Paquis.
Brasserie Lipp is an amazing authentic Parisian bistro which you can find in Paris and Switzerland only. The brasserie of Geneva is located at the heart of the city, in the Confederation Center. This restaurant is the perfect destination to celebrate, share time with friends or family and, enjoy delicious and authentic French food.
Who would not want to eat Babe? Its little feet are so yummy! Au Pied de Cochon literally means “At Pig’s Foot” and it is not a coincidence if the house specialty is the pig trotter. There are various bistros named as such around the world. You can find “Au Pied de Cochon” in Paris, Montreal, Mexico City and Geneva of course.
From London to New York with a stop over Geneva, Chez Philippe is the latest venue to add to your list of “must visit” restaurants. Owned by the very famous 2 Michelin stars Swiss Chef, Philippe Chevrier, Chez Philippe will not disappoint you.
Entre Homard & Cote is new in the restaurant scene of Geneva. Its concept is similar to Burger & Lobster in London or Les Pinces in Paris but here you can have it all: lobster, lobster roll, burger or steak. The surf & turf menu will make you want it all.
