Chez Ma Cousine, Geneva restaurant, Time Out Switzerland

Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Pleasingly simple place offering a satisfying meal on a budget in a pretty part of the Old Town.

Getting a decent, cheap meal in Geneva that’s not a salami and gherkin sandwich is difficult to come by, but this eternally popular place ticks that particular box with a pleasing simplicity. Chez Ma Cousine takes one rather tasty thing – spit-roasted chicken – and serves you half the bird with Provençal potatoes, dressed salad and a delicious gravy, for one extremely reasonable price. Salads and other variations also feature on the limited menu, but it’s essentially all chicken-based. It may not be the most imaginative of lunch options but if you want a satisfying meal on a budget in a pretty part of the Old Town then you can’t go wrong here. It’s not possible to book, so turn up out of peak times for a table – particularly if you’d like to sit outside. This, the original Cousine, has spawned two other cousins in St-Gervais and Petit-Saconnex.
