Very nice place. We had the starter of cheese, fondue for 2 people and two deserts for 99 francs. Very well priced for Geneva. We had the luck to be at the terrace, during the night, and the ambience was wonderful. A little slow to give us the bill, but as a summary, an excellent place to visit. Fondue was... More

We had family over from New Zealand and decided to give them a tast of a typical Swiss meal. So six of us had a fondue followed by meringue and gruyere double cream for dessert. Although the restaurant was packed, the waiters were very helpful and rapid. The fondue was as always very good - our waiter even scraped the... More

I specifically go here for the cheese fondue and for this reason have taken visitors from abroad. In addition to the fondue we have had steak, salad, and seasonal dishes. The chicken liver salad is particularly good as it is fresh all the time. The steak depending on how you get it done, is fine but can be at times... More

The Cheese Foundue is delicious and the desserts really worth a try! Very cosy place! They have a little outside sheltered garden and many places inside. Better book a table to be sure to get a place when you arrive 7-9pm

Have a been a number of times of the past year. Located near the Red Cross / UN in Saconnex. Can easily be reached with the tram. Smallish cafe / brasserie with outdoor seating area. Simple menu -- no frills, just solid Swiss fare, including mixed charcuterie, salads and fondu. Great ambiance, gets full, so reservation is recommended. Very enjoyable.

This is an institution when it comes to cheese fondue in Geneva. I often go there during the winter for lunch, or whenever there is someone visiting this becomes one of the best options for a typically Swiss meal. Although fondue is the undisputed king of the menu -in the winter the smell of cheese can be noticed from down... More

We came during summer and wanted to try fondue in Switzerland of course! However many Swiss will tell you that they don't eat it in summer so this place was a great find. The fondue was good, a little too much wine for my taste but everyone else loved it. Prices are good, especially for Geneva standards. I think fondue... More

We found this restaurant using trip adviser. There was plenty of parking in the area to make it easy to walk to the restaurant. We just walked in off the street but apparently they prefer reservations. We were lucky enough to get a table just as the lunch rush was finishing. The service was quick and efficient. The fondue tasted... More
