Steak House in Geneva

hi all, can anyone recommend a good place for a good steak in the Geneva area ( please don't mention Cafe du Paris )

you know the place I want.. charcoal grill, nice red wine, and a future of clogged arteries.

thanks,

Re: steak house

I don't know any place with a charcoal grill, sorry (and I've lived here all my life). But you can get a pretty good steak at the Red Ox steak house (Geneva), or at the Buffalo grill in Ferney, IMHO.

Re: steak house

Re: steak house

gaz, thanks.. perhaps I'll give the Red Ox a try.. but Buffalo Grill... I gotta tell ya.. Mrs.G and I ate there once...we ordered a bottle of wine ... the waiter came and presented the bottle.. the proceeded to shove the bottle between his legs while he opened it.

not an impressive sight.

"would mr. like the bottle warmed?"

LOL! Excellent story! Ah, those french...:-)

I never order wine, but seems like I'm missing out!

Re: steak house

In Zurich my fav steak house has to be Rollies in Oerlikon, lots of varieties of steak cooked on a hot stone so you can cook the meat to your preference, I can recommend the Ostrich

Re: steak house

Moevenpick. They have all sorts of cuts. The one in Zurich is VERY good. The one in Geneva? Heard different things about it.
