One of the oldest bistrot in carouge

The Restaurant

The Café des Négociants welcomes you from Tuesday to Saturday in the heart of Old Carouge, in a warm, authentic setting reminiscent of the famous bouchons in Lyon. With its refined design, old-fashioned advertising and vintage zinc, the décor is sober and elegant. In summer, the terrace is ideal for enjoying the lively atmosphere of this typically Sardinian district.

Considered as an institution, the Café des Négociants serves traditional, refined cuisine. The snail casserole, pan-fried frogs’ legs with parsley and the famous “entrecôte carougeoise” are some of the dishes for which the restaurant is renowned. Fine dishes à la carte, seasonal menus and a wine cellar with over 100 references.

A warm welcome

The Chef

Romain Loiseau, who worked for more than 12 years in Philippe Chevrier’s establishments, is at the helm of the stoves at the Café des Négociants.

He forms a close and complementary team with Patrick Gal, the head waiter. Generous and attentive, Patrick is the “maître de maison” of this institution.
