    Excellent food and service in a very cozy set up. Baba au rhum can't be missed... Also a very complete wine menu, mostly french and with fair prices.

    Excellent food, friendly and efficient service. The Baba au rhum as dessert was extraordinary! Cozy atmosphere, very well adapted to respect the current COVID norms.

    Quaint French bistrot in Geneva! Despite our nonexistent French, the staff were extremely helpful and receptive to our every need. Great attention to detail, right down to the Laguiole steak knives. Dizzying array of wines and a very refined menu. I recommend the entrecôte

    Great wines, great ratio price-quality..just a minor comment: tartare a l italienne should be pure meat with olive oil ans possibly salt and pepper, not onion..

About the restaurant

ESPRIT CANAILLE - Il y a une atmosphère de bouchon lyonnais dans ce vieux bistrot tout proche de Plainpalais et du boulevard des Philosophes ! Déco rétro et objets anciens aux murs, sol en damier et petites tables en bois : Le Socrate est un bon troquet comme on les aime.

SAVEURS D'ANTAN - À vous les petits plats fait maison à la Française ! Terrine de la grand-mère Angèle ou os à moelle à la fleur de sel, joue de bœuf braisée, souris d'agneau confite au thym frais et fondant au chocolat, vous ferez le plein d’authenticité.

BY GAULT MILLAU - Recommandé par le célèbre guide, voici un joli recoin de Genève où l’on vient aussi pour déguster un bon verre de vin…
