it is a cafe du cartier,but endlessly popular with the international community. You have to book every day of the week to be sure to have a table! Downstairs is best- a bit home, a bit grandma, a lot Geneva as we love it and by the way- you eat well !

I rented an apartment near Pl du Petit Saconnex and discovered this delightful family owned cafe with the most amazing fondue. Never thought I would find such a wonderful dining place in the neighborhood with so many more well known places in the city. Ask for a seat on the small balcony on the second floor with a view of...

Do make a reservation well in advance! This traditional.restaurant offers normally a good fondue, but one can eat fish and meat dishes as well. The atmosphere is friendly, a mix of local expats and residents having a good conversation and a decent meal! The restaurant is rather small. In summer one can drink and dine (and smoke) outside as well.

My girlfriend and I went to Cafe du Soleil for her birthday as we both love cheese and it was part of a great weekend in Geneva. The waiter was very helpful and friendly, I asked him for a candle on the dessert and he brought it and switched the lights off for a big Happy Birthday song by all... More

This restaurant feels like a local hangout in a small village, where regulars call by for a coffee, beer, or a chat, but which happens also to be renowned for its fondue. It is out of the centre, in the suburb called Petit Sacconex, where a lot of the UN missions are, and so the choice of alternatives is not... More

Delicious and straightforward food. With an authentic feel. Family run with a welcoming smile and cando attitude. In sharp contrast to rudeness experienced in the cafe next door we moved to Cafe du Soleil and are very glad that we did. Have the cheese fondue of course. And enjoy the atmosphere. We are quite late here and this place was... More

My brother had been telling me about how the "fondue suisse" is better than the "fondue savoyarde", well I can't really say but they do serve a mean fondue :). Quantity was just right too.
