We found this place on Google maps. Tried it out and was impressed by Fondue. The daily special was fish and equally as impressive. The fondue is filling though, so maybe order a fish after you finish the fondue to make sure you have room...More

Old design cafe which is full of local people. The foods are delicious. Reserve before go and it is better to seat in internal hall. Try traditional cheese and bread.

An authentic Swiss place. The fondue is brilliant delicious, mmmmm. Cured meats were delicious. There is a nice terrace in good weather and the interior is ‘classic bistro’. Prices are fine for Switzerland.
