Had tasty fondue ("half and half") accompanied by fresh salad and good wine in a rather surprising casual setting. The clientele was a combo of business and family, visitors and locals (even a well-mannered dog), adding to the laid back ambiance. Will visit again next time I'm in town.

While visiting the city on a beautiful, sunny day we went to this establishment for a fondue lunch. We chose the half/ half cheese fondue, with a basket of boiled new potatoes. The fondue was very enjoyable. I think my favourite part was the crusty cheese stuck to the pot. Our waiter was attentive and it was a very enjoyable... More

Excellent as always. Small traditional Swiss restaurant, close to Geneva lake. Fondues are a specialty and steak and red wine always good.

Chance upon this Resturant while exploring the city, we are lucky to have table available for us. After 7pm this place get really Full. So best advise to make reservation before going there. Fondue was not bad, service was fast and server is nice. Overall not a bad place for fondue.

My first experience with Swiss fondue and it was great. We had the goat's cheese fondue and the half and half. Both were delicious! The place was very packed and you should make a reservation.

I have come here often, most notably recently with my family. Always a great time. Usually I get fondue but this time I got the ham and cheese rosti, and it was absolutely amazing.

We had a very satisfying dinner here. We had a fondue with bread and unlimited meat -there´s no refill for cheese though so when you finish the cheese, there´s no sense in asking for more meat, although you can if you like . Quite pricey, but this is normal in Geneva. I had the cheapest wine in the list, but... More

This gem of a restaurant is worth the uphill climb. Wonderful fondue and a great choice of wines (I recommend the local Swiss wines as most are not exported out of the country and therefore are rare to find). Menus are in French and English, but this is not a tourist trap. Just across from the restaurant is the eglise... More
