I have been several time to eat their fondue and was never disappointed. Looking forward to the next time on the terrace.

I ate here with a colleague. The restaurant was very busy, lots of bookings but they managed to squeeze us in if we gave the table back in 75 mins time. We were served in enough time despite them having a table of 20 people...More

Fondu comes with cheese in a pot and bread. Waiter asked if we want dried meat. I said we want regular meat. He brought bread and cheese. Never brought anything else. I asked if it was all for the 24 euro fondu dinner. He said...More

I'm so fortunate to live in the fondue region. Fondue is one of my favourite winter dish, unless I'm really craving, I can eat it during summer too. I'd been trying Fondue all over Switzerland, Haute Savois - France, even to any ski stations in...More

Very cozy, small and busy. I was there on a rainy night, so no one could sit outside. But they accommodated the four of us inside. The fondu was delicious. The service was very quick and all the food was good. The fried rolls with...More

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

Even though I've had too many business lunches here, it's still my favourite place for fondue in Geneva (personal taste for the tangy rather than the mild...) What's great about Café du Soleil is that their other dishes are great too. Warm salads, duck, steak,...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.
