First of all, it stays open till late (what is particular unusual in Switzerland) and, although reservation is highly recommendable, you could eat there without it if you accept to wait for a while. The place decoration is typical and nice! Service is very friendly and you really feel welcome (welcome apero also!)! We had a fantastic plate os dry... More

Our favorite place was fully booked so we went to this place instead. We were delighted and this has become our favorite restaurant now. Food was great and plentiful -we had raclette. Service was excellent, our waiters were friendly and quick. I would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family

We went here because it was near our hotel and we wanted traditional Swiss food (fondue or raclette in particular). We got our wish- a GIANT pot of fondue which was not inexpensive. I had little energy to figure out the menu pricing but it seemed as if we had no choice but to get at least a portion for... More

Dear customers, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you experience with us didn’t reach your expectations. Concerning the fondue, it is a main plate. People eat only fondue generally. You had escargots and a salad before, so the waiter should have inform you that a fondue after that will be too much as we kindly ask 2... More

Didn't expect much when we first came, but were really impressed. We were given a nice secluded table in the outdoor terrace as it was a very pleasant evening. Service was friendly and efficient, with the waiter patiently explaining dishes and prepartation methods. They have an exstensive typical menu and the prices are not bad at all for Geneva. We...

Our concierge got us in to the Auberge on a busy Saturday night. Our short wait was made nicer by the complimentary wine from the maitre'd. The house cheese fondue was phenomenal with a great "kick" and the veal was perfect. The wine pours were generous. The place was busy with locals and had a great vibe and décor. The... More

Excellent cheese fondu and fondu bourginnon (ie meat) shared between 4; right amount of everything. The sauces and dips were good. The wine was expensive if you're not used to Swiss prices. Excellent desserts. This was a fantastic evening in a restaurant to which I would love to return.

Went for a couples dinner in November, we were desperate to have fondue while in Switzerland. Due to heavy downpours our original choice was inaccessible so decided to go here due to location to hotel. Atmosphere and decor is excellent, definitely feel like you are in a traditional Swiss restaurant. The fondue is delicious, however the menu is confusing (especially... More

The food was only ok but the prices were sky rocketing! 22 franks for not so tasty salad, the only thing that was somehow with some sense was the tea at 3.5 franks. D'ONT come near the meringue sticks, it was awful!!!!!!!
