This is a great bistro. Lots of atmosphere and always full, a reservation is advisable. The staff are friendly and efficient. Food varied for all tastes, their fondue is legendary! For dessert, try their merangues and gruyere cream!

The fondue is wonderful with a cosy atmosphere, and good wine. It's central to a number of UN and Red Cross offices. Other foods are great as well. Don't forget to have the profiteroles - some of the best in Geneva!

This place is likely the best spot for traditional swiss food (fondue!). Highly recommended. Fresh taste. Affordable. Very good spot to check out during your visit.
