Also known as 'Chez L'Père Glozu', this upscale Brasserie prides itself on its hearty good quality home-cooked fare but also on its rather archaic decor, which proves to be one of the main draws for the local Genevois as well as passing tourists.
With a reputation that dates from 1764 and a clientele that prefers that absolutely nothing changes in either its old-fashioned decor or its choice of dishes, the brasserie is a winning formula in more ways than one.
Despite its mid-range prices and its reputation for brusque staff (which we thankfully didn't have the joy of experiencing), the brasserie is a rather trendy and popular hangout.
The fare served here is very close to the typical French food one would find in a Brasserie or bistro over the border in France or Belgium. Expect to find 'Moules Frites' (deliciously steamed mussels), steak tartare (raw seasoned meat), cold roast beef as well as the typically Swiss fondue and raclette, proving once again that there really is no set season for indulging in piles of melted cheese!
A lovely restaurant exuding authentic 18th century charm, with cosy interiors and a terrace out front for eating out in the sunshine during the summer.
The restaurant is open throughout the day from 11:30am-11:30pm everyday of the week.
