Geneva : Restaurants

If you like steamed, healthy and tasty food, you can give a try to the MangoDesk Restaurant. It's Cours de Rive 20

http://www.mangodeck.ch/

I ate there with some new friends and I will go there again.

thanks. I'll test it.

PS: was the post more of an excuse to tell us about your "new friends" or is it really about the restaurant?

Re: Geneva : Restaurants

I was talking about Pizzerias with my brother, and the best is Le Jet D'eau, 90, rue des Eaux-Vives.


And my brother loves pizzas....

Re: Geneva : Restaurants

One of my favorite spots in Geneva for the traditional flambe de la potence is none other than Le Grizzly Srl in Grand Sacconex

Nope. The best pizza in GVA is at Luigia's. Their pizzas are the closest thing I've tasted to a Naple's pie without going to Italy. Definitely worth a visit.

Both of them are quite expensive, 20-25 chf for a pizza is way over my budget. Do you know any cheaper places near Paquis? I only know a couple of 10chf pizza joints in Plainpalais, but nothing in the Paquis area.

I don`t think the espresso bar is more than abt 18 but i may be off the mark.There are cheaper, i guess its what you can accept as a pizza

Yeah, I think Espresso club pizzas are between 17 and 25 chf more or less. I mean, it is something ok to pay if you have dinner out. But if one evening I'm just too lazy to cook and I want to order ir or pick up some food, I would need a cheaper place..

I don't know 'No pizza', I'll have to check it out then.

Re: Geneva : Restaurants

For pizzas and pasta there's Pasta D'oro in front of the hospital. Tastes good and the portions are huuuuuge.

I haven't been here long, but got to agree with Espresso bar. Though I will try a couple of the other places I've seen suggested, so thanks.

I've tried Il Fornello Napolatano Da Antonio on the corner of Rue de Lausanne and Rue de Prieure in Paquis. Their pizzas aren't bad, but I've fallen in love with their Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino. Simple done brilliantly.
