    Restaurant, food, atmosphere, service: everything is good. BUT we’ve been overcharged for the drink. I think that 60 chf for a bottle of Prosecco is definitely too much. It’s not in the wine list (so you can’t see the price) and then you get the surprise at the end....... not fair at all!

    Nice and warm place with a “Restaurant Lyonnais”atmosphere. Authentic menu and welcoming service. Unless a reduction, pricing “ à la carte “is quiet high. (50% reduction thanks to the fork). Daily menu set at fair price available. We recommend.

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…
