We came here because of a recommendation of the cab driver when we inquired about Swiss cuisine. There are two rooms and while the one on the right has a nicer atmosphere the one on the left where we were led was nothing special at all... not even a table cloth. I had a veal dish which is usually very... More

Visitors from Canada wanted "cheese" fondu and raclette on a Sunday in Geneva and this place filled the bill wonderfully. Fondu with cognac was the best. We ate in the chalet side of the restaurant a bit touristy but food and wine made up for it.

I had some friends over for a weekend in December. They wanted to try cheese fondue for lunch, however it was late and no one was serving anymore. We tried this place and they were still serving food. Not the best deco in the world but the waiters were nice and so was the food. We ended up having 1... More

There are few real swiss dishes, so this place, with like 80's style decor and simple menu actually is what it should be. Don't expect complicated meals, but the fondue (cheese or meat) are generous. And it all boils down to going in a group and enjoying the group concept of fondue. Service can be "absent" in that you have... More

This restaurant has a very old-fashioned feel, but in a dated way. The service was acceptable, the house red wine was a bit tart, and the food was edible but rather bland. The dessert menu consists solely of Carte D'Or frozen desserts, which was disappointing. Hope this is not a true reflection of Swiss cuisine!

With a great atmosphere, Cave Valaisanne really fill our measures of what we expected of a swiss restaurant. The room was very cosy and the waiters very friendly. We ate fondue bourguignon and raclettes and everything was excelent. The peach ice cream with liquor summed up a great evening. It is a restaurant to be recommended. Be prepared, nevertheless, for...

I visited Cave Valaisanne et Chalet Suisse in april 2013. It's amazing but in Geneve was not so many restaurants which specialize in raclette! And Cave Valaisanne is one of them. Warm athmosphere, suisse cuisine, good food. What more needed for tired traveler!
