LIPP RESTAURANT (BRASERRIE LIPP) GENEVA COCKROACH FAIL!!!

Hello Everybody,


Today (12.08.2017 at 19:15) me and my friend, we went to LIPP RESTAURANT in Confederation Centre Geneva. We ordered our starters and main courses. My friend ordered Mussle Soup from their specialities. Anyway after couple of spoon we saw a 2cm big DEAD COCKROACH. Yes you didn't hear wrong, a COCKROARCH!!! We immediately reacted and called their chef. One of their main waiters come and see and he said " Sorry for that "  and went away!  They didn't offer anything and we shocked one more time. We left there immediately without having dinner. NEVER AGAIN LIPP RESTAURANT!!! If somebody thinks this is not true, they have our names in their reservation book and they know exactly what happened. Feel free to ask them!


 


Thanks

Very sorry to read of your unhappy experience.


I suggest you send a registered letter to the Geneva Office du Tourisme and perhaps also write to (or telephone) a local weekly newspaper called “GHI”.  That should provoke some action, so let us know what transpires.


All the best, R.

Apparently it is normal in Geneva.


Once we were in Luigia in Eux-Vives and also saw a cockroach (near the table, not in the dish thuogh :). We informed the waiter and she just said "yeah, now is a season there are plenty of them". No excuses, no shocking...

They eat several insects ( I am not humiliating them. It's their culture , their preferences and I respect )

OK, so I’m  a dumb and now faded blonde, but still can’t fathom what Thai cuisine has to do with cockroaches in the Lipp and Luigia eateries.

Don't worry! Everybody does not have humor. And you do not have to understand everything. Just let it go!
