Authentic restaurant

With great service and delicious food. The fondue is tasy - you have 5 variants of cheeses to choose from. Great meal after a long day of traveling.

We visited here after reading the good reviews and were not to be disappointed. We booked a table for 9 and walked in to find the place packed but were quickly seated downstairs in the cellar (request to sit downstairs as has more atmosphere) and were given our menus by the very helpful and multilingual waitress. I did notice that,... More

An excellent meal, which was exactly as expected given the name of the restaurant. Very popular, so you do need to book - many people were turned away disappointed. Very good service and a varied menu of tasty food and wines. It's not just cheese - but the cheese is very good, so why would you have anything else?

My boyfriend and I are not fans of cheese fondue, but rather we chose the restaurant based on the name. We were lucky to get a table on walk-in. The owner seemed to give away tables whenever he had one available but telling others "the next free one is at 11pm". He told us we could have ours for 1... More

We booked a table of three some weeks ago, just as well as this place was packed the day we dined..the fondue was ok, nothing spectacular. However what was remarkable was the female waitress who took care of the packed restaurant alone, she also went out of her way to ensure everyone was happy and that they had their drinks... More

Me and my fiancee went there for dinner after reading the glorious reviews on Tripadvisor. We were seated in the basement which looks like an old wine cellar (awesome), when the waitress, who was very kind and friendly, handed us the English menus. At this point we realized that one bowl of fondue is going to cost 32 Euros (16... More

I come from a family of cheese lovers so was very excited to bring them here! We were luckily seated downstairs in the cellar, instead of upstairs, which was great as it felt very rustic and quite scenic (so ask to be sat downstairs if you can). Our meal was lovely and the whole experience was great, the only thing... More

We had a great time with the classic fondue and mixed cold cuts plate. Service was efficient and very pleasant. It could get claustrophobic in the basement though.

For €80 fondue, ham, plate of cheeses, dessert and a 1/2 bottle of win the place is very good. Our waiter (a woman) was excellent and friendly. If you are not an expert with cheeses they will help you but the results are not guaranteed as these are depended on personal flavors. Second time here (cellar), will revisit. Interesting that...

Staying in Le Marais

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.
