Not a bad selection. We had fondue with pears and a nice dry white wine from Sion. I've lived in Switzerland for 3 years and know a good fondue when I have one. My one bad remark was that the bread was so chewy!!!! I'm not as upset as a true Swiss would be, but it was pretty bad. I took my friend from London here who absolutely loved it! Probably why it's a tourist spot and not for locals. Otherwise, staff was nice, spoke French, English and German and I heard some Italian, typical of all Swiss. Reasonably priced compared to the other places we looked at. Wine + fondue for 2 people expect about just under 100 CHF.

Thank you for visiting us and for your evaluation.
We are glad that you enjoyed our fondue and that you appreciate its quality.
We are sorry that you did not like our bread or that it was not fresh enough for you.
Thanks to our local bakers, we are supplied with fresh bread every day, even on Saturdays and Sundays. Our bread is maximum from the day before.
There are people who like fondue with very fresh bread, others appreciate it when the bread is already 1-2 days old. We're sorry we didn't suit your taste.
Fortunately, our restaurant is also very popular with "non-tourists", i.e. locals.
We would be pleased to welcome you again anyway!

Thank you for your visit to our restaurant, the feedback and the good rating :-).
We have several (up to 10!) different cheese fondues on our menu: with tomatoes, mushrooms, gorgonzola, chilli, dry-cured ham, prosecco.... Our house speciality is served with bread, potatoes and pears...
In the selection of our wines we attach great importance to regionality. Our salads are freshly prepared daily and all dressings are homemade.
We would be pleased to welcome you again!

We popped in the day before to make a reservation for the next evening. The lady was friendly, explained there were 2 sittings each evening and offered us a table at either sitting. We opted for the latter at 8.30pm. We arrived 10 mins early but this wasn’t a problem and were showed immediately to our table. The service was friendly and efficient, the fondue was great and the atmosphere was cosy. This is a good fondue option in Zermatt.
