A very noisy, touristy, artificial place in the centre of Geneva that serve typical Swiss food accompanied by repetitive music, with some curious instruments on a couple of songs. The food, traditional fondues and swiss fare, is expensive and not that great. Some of the staff were not friendly at all and some even rude, but there was a very,... More

The restaurant is part of the Hotel Edelweiss. It is located at the Navigation bus stop (opposite the bus stop basically), not far from the bain des paquis. The decoration is quite original (you are basically in a chalet type deco) and there was a band playing swiss music on that evening. The service was very good and friendly. As... More

The restaurant makes a good attempt to bring the mountain village experience to Geneva City. Staff were pleasant and helpful - this restaurant is well liked and is often fully booked - adjacent to the hotel. Live music was played all evening which was quite entertaining and the food was OK - my only 2 small points were that the... More

The smell of sweet cheese must be ingrained in the wallpaper. It one of those smells that you think will go after a while but it lingers throughout the meal. I had a burger and chips, hard to get wrong, but they managed to ruin it. The burger was raw and the chips made of cardboard. One member of the... More

My friend and I came here for the dinner because the review looked good and since we came to Switzerland I wanted to eat something swiss. The fondues were amazing but the service wasn't so good. It was really slow. We had to wait so long for dessert (even tho we were one of the first ones who were there).... More

We tried to get reservations for 3 different nights. Each time we were told the restaurant was full all night but the next night was empty and the would get us a reservation. Each day we checked and they were booked solid. They weren't very nice considering we were staying at the Hotel. We found great Swiss style menus all... More

It's a great place for the 'traditional' Swiss experience! The decor and live music make for a fun evening and the fondue is excellent. We ordered enough for the four of us however, a portion for three would have sufficed. Quite pricey even by local standards. 7chf for a few lettuce leaves and one cherry tomato didn't reflect a green... More
