Excellent service, even without a reservation. We were lucky enough to snag an outside table for myself, my husband, and our toddler son. The waitress was lovely, brought out son markers to color, and was impressive throughout. The fondue was phenomenal! We also had the...More

This is an unmissable classic of French Swiss cuisine. The fondue, the malakoff, the mereingue with creme de gruyere are all just sumptuous,

Didn't really find too much here I liked for breakfast. Was hoping for way more. Yogurt and some fruit. I think I would enjoy lunch and dinner here better.

An old staple that didn't let us down. Summer weather was so sucky that it was perfect for fondue. Friend and I had 5 fondues. It was excellent. Prompt service, nice setting, international/expat crowd. Downstairs is more atmospheric. Outside is nice- if it isn't raining.
