International Geneva is often called a gastronomic capital of Switzerland. With over than 1,000 restaurants the city offers great variety of world’s cuisines from authentic French to exotic Asian one. You can definitely find everything in world’s diplomatic capital, but it’s all about prices.

Thus Moira told to SUISSEPIC that she could not forget her experience at Hotel des Bergues, where she paid CHF 64 for 8 pieces of gnocchi with a drizzle of olive oil as a main course. Yes, meal is not very cheap in Geneva. And yes, it is not an easy thing to find a place to have a business lunch. However, SUISSEPIC had a talk with the locals where they prefer to eat during the day-time.

We asked them the same question: Where do you recommend a young entrepreneur to go for a business lunch with a potential partner or client? Therefore, with this question, we tried to set initial budget restrictions.

Lake road and Carouge are considered the best areas to have a fine authentic business lunch.

Parfums de Beyrouth

Shawarma!!! (approximately CHF 20)
One of my favorite places with great Lebanese food. With the price of shawarma of CHF 8 or a huge meat plate with falafel, salads and hummus as a side dish plus a drink for CHF 20 this place could easily beat street food or Migros with ready-made food. You close your eyes for simple decorations as food is so delicious. The place could fit for fast-going meetings or your own business lunch.

Fast. Beside the train station (approximately CHF 30)
