This was one of the more unique experiences in France. We liked the fondue, but loved the atmosphere of this place, the close quarters...shoulder to shoulder with people, you have to climb on the tables to get to your seat, you can doddle on the walls, you really get to know your neighbor and fellow travelers/french folks, wine out of...

Ive been coming here every time I visit Paris since I studied abroad here in 2009. This time, it seemed more touristy, which was actually good because it was easier to communicate with the staff. I like the food, but I can see how people would complain about not having options. Don't be afraid to ask for more wine! also... More

It's a cute idea to drink wine out of baby bottles, but that's about it. its a little over 20 euros a person and you get a small meat type plate for an appetizer. then you pick cheese or meat fondue. We got cheese and it was good, but it was nothing to rave over. You also pick red or... More

First of all, this is not an elegant place. This place is unique in it's own way. There is no menu available, you choose between two types of fondues and for drinks you can drink as many you want, from the limited offer. The price for a person was fixed to 21 euros. I don't wanna spoil the surprise with... More

micro portions, small and claustrophobic space, rude waiter. totally overrated. for the real fondue experience just take a walk down the street and you can find much nicer place with fair prices!

If you go to France you have to try the typical food of Fondue and here you have the possibility to eat a special one in a friendly environment! We waited half hour for a table but it was worth it and comsidering that we didn't reserve a table we were so lucky! The place is pretty small and so... More

This has to be one of the most fun dining experiences I have had. L.R.D.F. is about as big as a walkin closet yet it is colossal in its ability to provide great food at a great price in a great atmosphere!!! A little off the beaten path but worth the walk up hill to find it!!!!

Fondue! Oh mon dieu? Quel expérience! Le personnel était super gentil et l'expérience est tellement unique, le goût c'est incomparable! This small restaurant was recommended by a friend, I only wanted to eat fondue, but would have never expected what I found, especially after a long walk from the metro to the rue des quatre-saisons frères, it is worth it!...

Having planned a trip with my partner we researched some "interesting" restaurants in Paris that we planned to visit. This came highly recommended. Let me first say that this is not your typical dining experience, this is not the kind of place for a romantic meal for two so be ready to be pushed out of your comfort zone. The... More
