I was a little sceptical about the touristy appearance and the whole fondue and folk music concept but must admit that it works. i dined alone and it was the best value of my trip to Geneva. The fondue was delicious, the service friendly and the musicians excellent.The crowd was varied and good humoured without being raucous. Recommended especially if you have the 15% discount for any Manotel guest and want the opportunity to taste fondue.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you very much for your nice comment.

We are a postcard of Switzerland. Our restaurant is typically Swiss with food specialities from all around the country (we work with local producers) and we have traditional Yodel music to entertain the evening.

We look forward your next visit in Geneva and we hope to have the pleasure to see you again soon.

Best regards,

Caroline Adler

We took our granddaughter to experience a true fondu. We have 4 different types, beef fondue in oil, seafood in a clear broth, cheese and then a chocolate fondu. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Service was satisfactory. It was nice to have a band playing the local music followed by some jazz. We would not go here often, but for the experience it is worthwhile.

I was recommended this place by locals for a true Swiss experience and it scored way beyond my expectations.

FOOD (CHF 108 for two without drinks)
First of all this place is only open for dinner, its part of the hotel Edelweiss and a reservation is strongly recommended.
The menu offers all types of Swiss dishes from rosti, cheese fondue, meat fondue, etc. We had the Fondue Bourguignon which is what I call Meat Fondue as you dip in raw meat in burning oil. The 200g of meat also come with 4 different dipping sauces (bearnaise, aioli, cocktail, onion). We took a rosti in addition to share but frankly it was too much, we got too excited. Overall all the food was excellent, the menu itself seem to offer all the Swiss specialities (I'm Swiss) and at a fair price in my opinion for Geneva.

STAFF/SERVICE
The staff were very friendly overall and the food arrived very rapidly although arguably our food didn't need much preparation.

ATMOSPHERE/LOCATION:
Now this is THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of why to visit Edelweiss in my opinion. Every evening they employ 2 singers/musicians who perform live using Swiss cow bells and Swiss alphorns (Google it!) whilst "yodeling". It is highly entertaining as most people think of this as a typical Swiss stereotype! Oh and without mentioning that the guy will let you try and blow the alphorn also!
The restaurant is also on two floors and resembles a small cute chalet with Swiss flags pending everywhere! The tables are nice and large, full comfort!
The location is in Paquis just off all the big hotels like Kempinski! Only a 5min walk from the main train station Cornavin!

CONCLUSION: I STRONGLY RECOMMEND AND WILL RETURN as this is a perfect place to take visiting tourists in my opinion!
