Had cheese fondue. Would probably recommend sharing dishes here as my partner and I shared cheese fondue and all the cheese got a bit much by the end of the meal. Sounds obvious I guess, but we both wanted fondue at the time! Still quality food and service though. You will find alot of activities and restaurants excessively expensive in... More

Went with a big group for fondue and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Such a social way to enjoy an evening. Service is attentive and helpful to explain all your fondue 'do's and don'ts". They brew their own beer which is delicious too. I'd go back.

Our group of 4 arrived without a reservation but they were able to fit us in. Two of us ordered fondue, one had raclette and another bratwurst. We all enjoyed our meals very much and the service was good. Yes, it's a little noisy but that didn't interfere with our enjoyment. Definitely recommend if you want tradition Swiss food; probably...

This is a Keller or cellar design and it's architecture is handsome with vaulted ceilings and interesting applied designs. But there are no soft surfaces in the room so hearing over the din of others talking loudly in order to be heard makes the dining a bit tedious. The fondue is excellent and the salad, pre dressed with a yogurt... More

We had the classic cheese fondue and then the hot stone lamb and chicken. The cheese and lamb were excellent. The chicken was fine but we wished we had chosen steak or something more interesting instead. Our server was nice but very slow.

Had dinner there with my family. They had both al fresco and indoor dining but I would recommend al fresco if the weather permits as the atmosphere is very nice. Best fondue I've had in Switzerland!

Have had the opportunity to enjoy a good fondue several times. Very well prepared and presented. The prices are reasonable, and see several tourists trying out this Swiss speciality. I love to spend a evening with friends, at any given time of the year. I must honestly confess that we had excellent and efficient service when Mr Jean Mark Buehler... More

Description
To us, "Swiss Alpine cuisine" means bringing a portion of the "Swiss mountains" to you at lunchtime or in the evening. The rustic cellar vault brings to mind a typical wine cellar in the vineyards of the Valais. We put the aroma of the Swiss Alps on your plates.

The original cheese fondue comes to you in eight different variations, as dictated by Valais tastes. And when your meat is brought to you on a hot stone, you know it will be cooked exactly as you want it.

Of course, our menu also includes the classics; "Bauernbratwurst" sausage with onion sauce, veal Cordon Bleu with herbed French fries, and – naturally – Zurich "Geschnetzeltes" (stir-fried veal) served with rosti.

In summer, we also serve all these delights on our delightful terrace beside the pedestrian zone. Have we whetted your appetite? We look forward to seeing you!
