Great cheese fondue, good service and a beautiful spot on the terrace looking out towards the valley and mountains in the sun. Same prices as everywhere else in town. Friendly staff. Great lunch - would visit again!

We tried a little of everything and left happier than we have been anywhere else on this trip. This food was fantastic, so tasty and done to perfection. The specialty salad was out of this world, the Alpine Chowder was hearty(enough to share), and the rosti was to die for. Wish we had more time to come back and eat... More

Very Swiss, very enjoyable, savory, indulgent. Wine was excellent - some local, white- don't remember the name exactly. Meringue with cream to die for. Totally authentic experience. Highly recommend.

Excellent location, great views , great breakfast and good restaurant. The restaurant was the busiest in "town" when we were there, always a good sign. Rooms very cosy, warm and clean, beds comfortable too. We hope to return to Gruyeres when it is green and we will definitely return to this hotel, hopefully same room, The Room with the View!

Had a wonderful meal, today. Very child friendly. It was half term in Switzerland 🇨🇭. So the town was a tad crowded. Tried to eat at the cheese factory restaurant but told there would be an hours wait. We have eaten here many times and the staff are so friendly. So instead of joining the mass coach parties that had... More

We stayed over night in this beautiful village on a hill at the lovely restaurant & hotel La Fleur de Lys. The smell of the Gruyeres Fondue fills the streets in the afternoon, inviting you to come sit on the patio of the restaurants and have a delicious cheese feast! 1 Gruyeres fondue with a basket of bread, 1 Raclette...

When in Switzerland!! Delicious cheese fondue. The veal was also delicious. Friendly service. Closed very early on a Sunday night (7pm) but I think that is usual for the village and everyone just ate early!

We ate lunch here while in Gruyeres on the Chocolate Train excursion. We were lucky enough to snag an outdoor seat, looking over the main square of Gruyeres. Our server pointed out an English menu to us. We had cheese fondue (of course) and rosti. Prices were comparable to what we saw throughout Switzerland, maybe a bit less. Service was... More

We've visited the castle & the Giger-museum with our dutch-american friends. Somebody wanted to eat "Bratwurst" so we went looking for a restaurant, which would offer this in a menu or a meal. We found it in this restaurant here. You could order all kind of things, but also local specialities from Fribourg. Our friend got his Bratwurst (even if... More
