Finally the right raclette and fondue!

Very particular place (book in advance!!!) absolutely to try if you want a very good fondue or raclette. Totally worthy, located in a typical downtown area, it's suggested to book in the basement flood within a sort of cave.

This restaurant is excellent place for Fondue. There is a very good selection of cheese and wine. Anything that you pick is bound to be good. Raclette is traditional French food for winter and is good here. The staff is helpful and polite. They are patient to explain the details.

Dined here in October whilst visiting friends. Made to feel welcome even though we had not booked a table. The raclette and the fondue were truly scrumptious and the ambience and surroundings and the staff were truly amazing. Even got to sample another dish whilst trying to decide. I hope I get the chance to return. Thank you.

we struggled to find any cheese fondue so ended up googling where to go and this place came up as #1 every time. We had so much trouble trying to find it as it's down a little side street and people were sop unhelpful with directions. We finally found it and it didn't look much although it was full with...

This was an amazing place. The atmosphere was great. The service was amazing. We asked for recommendations for four people and they recommended a cheese and a meat fondue as well as the homemade cheesecake. Everything was so good that I nearly cried. :D

This was a lovely little restaurant that we discovered via Tripadvisor. We had a bit of a hiccup, so were late for our reservations by 20 mins. By this time, the owner had already given away the table and refused to accommodate us until 2 hrs later. However, on the next day, we reached on time and were given a... More

This place was good. We ordered there house special fondue, which came with bread. The fondue was really flavorful unlike the melting pot in the U.S. This place is very popular so make sure to have reservation. We were lucky to come in right as they opened at 7 pm.

We had dinner at the Pain Vin Fromage and it was our absolute favourite meal on all of France!!! We ordered a raclette and a fondue and stuffed ourselves with the wonderful cheese, potatoes, bread, and other stuff that the fun waitress brought out. And reasonably priced too!

My husband and I were not sure if "fondue" was an American thing or is it actually French. Thanks to tripadvisor.com, we discovered this fine location. I would recommend the Fondue savoyards (a bunch of France's finest cheese melted together). It was delectable and affordable. I would also recommend making reservations or have your concierge at the hotel make it... More

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
