High quality Fondue, reasonable wine, not many frills and quite pricey. The sorbet desserts are an experience. We had the Syrah wine, which I think was the most expensive on the list (48 CHF I think) and it wasn't great. The white wine was fine. Some tables are the bench style which you may share with others. Especially liked the... More

Nice place to have a fondue with your friends. Friendly service, as well. It's a typical cosy Swiss "resto" (more like an "auberge" type), yet very well-known, and probably this is one of the reasons it's quite noisy (so couples, if you really need some intimacy, this is not the best place for an intimate dinner), quite expensive as well...

Small restaurant in old town Carouge, very near to the Sardaigne parking garage. Unassuming exterior, cozy interior, a bit cramped with tables very close to each other. The food is good, everybody goes for the fondue which is of high quality, as is the valaisian platter (charcuterie) that goes well with it. Service is a bit brusque, which can be... More

Very nice and friendly atmosphere. The fondue is very tasty, especially the moitie-moitie and the tomato one. Prices are high, in line with local standards. The owner provides some good entertainment for her customers too!

This is the best fondue in Geneva. I return every time I'm in Geneva. This place is warm and cozy and has a great atmosphere for a fondue. We started with a 1/2 portion of viande séchée and a bottle of the house fendant, which was terrific. The highlight was the fondue - moitié moitié. It was outstanding!! The quality... More

Probably one of the best fondues in the Geneva area. The place is small and cozy and the service is friendly. We went with our baby and we had to put the baby carriage in the store room because the place is full with tables and chairs.

Had the best fondue here. I had the fondue au tomate with potatoes. It was perfect to share! The waiter were a little abrupt and quick however with the high volume of people and one waiter it was hard to catch his attention. Otherwise the best fondue experience I had in Switzerland.

We visited here with another American couple, and none of us spoke French well. We had heard they had the best fondue in town. We just wanted to try a few small dishes, but the waiter wouldn't accept our order of fondue for 1 person. He insisted on a 3-person portion and a large roesti, and a dinner-size salad for... More

The fondue is one of the best of Geneva. The quality of the food is good but the waiters are not very nice.

I came here 20 years ago and remembered the fondue as being excellent. It still is! If you want to eat simply the best fondue come here!
