Geneva Travel Guide

Best Restaurants in Geneva

Eating out in Geneva is a gratifying affair. With more restaurants per capita than New York City, Geneva offers a fantastic selection of traditional and local fare, as well as excellent international and ethnic cuisine. Local Geneva specialities include fresh fish from the lake and a variety of pork dishes, including (salt pork) and (pork sausage). While Swiss cheese is enjoyed worldwide, Geneva has copious amounts of Raclette, Emmenthal and Gruyere, among other well-known cheeses on offer. These can be tasted in the quintessential Swiss fondue. Traditional Swiss restaurants can be found throughout the city but Place du Cirque and Quay Turrettini host some of the best. Diners eating out in Geneva will find a variety of international restaurants offering modern, traditional, ethnic or fusion menus. There are good French restaurants in the hotels on Quai Du Mont Blanc and Chemin du Petit Saconnex and on Rue de Lausanne. For Italian eateries try Rue de Fribourg, while Spanish food is best on Rue de Coutance. Rue du Prieuré has a delightful Indian restaurant, and there are great cafés on Boulevard Helvetique. While the prices at top restaurants can be astronomical the standards are just as high. There are also fixed-price menus available to lighten the load. A 7% service charge is included in all restaurant bills. Many Geneva restaurants close on weekends and especially Sundays, so call ahead to enquire; reservations are recommended.
