Having had the "American" version of Fondue, I was unprepared for the real thing! Deep, deep flavors, the aroma, the wine...I can't put into words how great an experience this was. My friend moved to Geneva a year ago and all he did was talk about this place. He was absolute correct. The only downside is that they are so... More

Delicious fondue, super friendly staff, chalet style atmosphere (a bit kitch but goes well with the food). Great place to get that apres-ski/hike feeling, but without burning the calories first (not sure if that's a good thing...)

Went with a friend for the first time, the place is cozy, good service and good fondue. Even though it was summer we enjoyed very much.

Had to do this, found on google and tripadvisor. The best and most authentic fondue around. Great place, tucked away in a small town high street at the top. Staff/Family were the best, food was fantastic. Had the meats and the fondue with a good bottle of white. Loads of food, plenty of crusty bread and I was proper full... More

We were 8 adults for dinner - we had the most delicious Fondue - however there were other choices on the menu. One of our group can't digest cheese - so she had plenty of alternatives from which to choose. Lovely atmosphere and service. All in all a great Swiss experience and value for money.

If ever you feel like having a real fondue, this is the place to come to. It's a neighborhood restaurant, decorated in typical regional style. Service is very warm and friendly( I was even offered a menu in English) and food is delicious. We started with Viande Sechee ,a Swiss specialty usually part of the Fondue dinner, that was excellent.... More

On a Saturday night we had a reservation at this cosy place. It is a small restaurant with place for 25/30 people. We ordered a half-half fondue for one person which came with bread and potatoes and we ordered a meat and cheese plate. I never had fondue but it was surprisingly good! Mixing it with bread and some gives... More
