Nice typical restaurant in fribourg. I had the tartar, which I wouldn't suggest. The fondue was really nice and so were the meringues with cream. My daughter had the omelette (not worth it). If you go stick to local fondue. Got to love cheese and the smell.

The food was good and the price decent BUT the service is terrible. The waitress we got was so bad at her job is close to be indecent ! She clearly did not care. Politeness in service is a minimum. To the management : please do something about your employees! Due to the service and the service only, I do... More

Oh yes you better believe we came here just for the fondue. And it was perfect. We had the traditional fondue of a mix of gruyere and another cheese. Served with tiny potatoes for dipping. Delicious! My husband had a special steak that also finished cooking in a pan in front of us on a flame with cheese and herbs.... More

In one sentence: Dont go. Look for a different restaurant that is further down the street. It does not really matter,where down the street, because "CAFÉ DU GOTHARD, CAFÉ RESTAURANT DU THÉÂTRE and others in that area are much better, lower in price, and actually greet you as if you were welcome. We made a reservation one week before and... More

The restaurant offers an authentic Swiss atmosphere using a cozy interior with wooden panels. The tables are not that large and rather close to each other which, combined with the lower ceiling on the first floor, can create a rather loud environment. The place is not too crowded at lunch time so this is recommended if you like to dine... More

Having read reviews of the Cafe du Midi, we came with high expectations and we weren't disappointed. THe cafe is just downhill from the railway station in the Rue Romont pedestrian zone. You can dine indoors or join the smokers under outdoor umbrellas. The interior is charming. Try their daily specials, the menu du jour.....outstanding value and very high quality.... More

Cosy restaurant where to spend a nice relaxed dinner. Cheese is their best but i've also been very positively impressed by other dishes like entrecote and also salads with rabbit liver and warm goat cheese. Wine selection might be a bit wider.
