Les Armures

Fodor's Review

A robust Swiss menu has made this Vieille Ville institution a magnet for local street sweepers, foreign heads of state, and everyone in between. Before tucking into a fondue or raclette (melted cheese served with small potatoes in their skins, pickled pearl onions, and gherkins), order a starter of air-dried meat cut paper thin—a specialty of the canton of Grisons. Other choices include Schübling (sausage) or veal strips in cream sauce: both come with

sinfully delicious Rösti, a buttery cake of grated potatoes. The kitchen serves until 11:30 pm (11 on Sunday) and in season you can sit outdoors and soak up the Old Town's historic vibe.

Yawn Yawn

The restaurant does not live up to the great reviews I have read on line. It is "OK" and nothing more. Some good dishes such as Onion Soup and Creme Burlee. Worse than average dishes such as tough veal in cream sauce! Atmosphere is crowded and lively. Seems to be a tourist favourite, which may not translate well.

Okay, but nothing more

A decent meal at a decent price (by Geneva standards) but nothing more than that. Our outdoor table was up against the wall of an adjacent building.

I can see why Bill Clinton was here the night before

When in Geneva, do not hesitate to dine here. We visited on honeymoon and everything about this restaurant is as magical as Geneva itself. Gorgeous traditional Swiss dishes, wonderful service, enchanting atmosphere and a good bottle Chateau neuf du pape all make for a fabulous restaurant.

Atmosphere galore

I love this place. I last came here on a rainy day (one of the few places open on a Sunday. Raclette, giant Swiss sausage, and Rosti (hash browns) were just what we wanted - warm, filling food. The place has a lot of character, and it's cozy.
