Delicious fondue and helpful staff

When entering the place seemed kind of shabby. However it turned out to be simple charm. The staff was quick and helpfull. When we asked about getting a taxi they immediately called one and warned us when it arrived.

I didn't like the fact that their salad sauce was from a bottle and they had put dried mixed spices (herbes de provence) in it. Their salads are big but i've had better in Geneva. There is a relaxed atmosphere with a special corner for breastfeeding mothers which is nice. I wouldn't go there again unless I have to.

Ask for a table in the Cave - very cosy! Great fondue and great selection of Swiss wines. Second fondue in a couple of days but was if anything better.

Traditional Swiss fondue, served with genuine care and desire for us to enjoy our meal. Our waiter recommended everything, and he was spot on with both variety and quantity. We plan to revisit often.

I have lunched and dined at this restaurant frequently over the last ten years. This is a typical swiss brasserie restaurant. Located in Grand scones nof far rom the Inter continental hotel, the place is always full. At lunch you have very decent meals ranging between 18 - 25 CHF ( without drinks) . The place is ALWAYS full so... More

I'm not much for fondue (sorry, Switzerland), but I must admit that the fondue at Café du Soleil is very good.

Great for fondue, traditional dishes and salads. Lots of fun. Need to book but easy to book online. Staff helpful and knowledgeable, most with very good English.

We used to love this restaurant back in the day. Recent visits made me feel it was overpriced and customers start feeling like their are part of an assembly line. But I have friends who are still diehard fans. The sauce can not be beat.

Love the food here, the restaurant has good prices for Geneva standards. This is the first place I had a cheese fondue and still my favourite place. Any chance I get to be in the city I visit here for my all time favourite dessert, cinnamon creme brûlée!
