Best swiss spot

This place is likely the best spot for traditional swiss food (fondue!). Highly recommended. Fresh taste. Affordable. Very good spot to check out during your visit.

What a lovely quaint little restaurant! They serve the traditional fondue which is their speciality. They do offer other foods though we didn't try it. Their meringue with the Creme de la Gruyere is absolutely amazing....to die for!! Make sure you book a table in advance otherwise you are unlikely to get space!

We had the unfortunate experience of eating there and during our lunch an elder guy became critically ill. I found it EXTREMELY SELFISH from the restaurant personel to make this man's wife pay for their meal with one hand while she waited for the ambulance and hold the hand of this unresponsive man that was in obvious need of emergency...

We had a very nice lunch today and the most relevant and great part was the fondue, definitely tasty. The environment is cozy and informal. Prices are competitive, being Geneva - we paid 35 chf with a glass of good Italian wine. Recommended

11 of us arrived for a night in Geneva before our skiing trip and were pleased to have checked this place out in advance and book a table. The restaurant is easy to find on public transport, (free if you pay the city tax as part of your hotel stay) just take the tram to petit-saconnex and it's right there.... More

Never having had a fondue in Switzerland I had to try this place. We phoned for a table same night and got one at 21.30. We had cheese starter for 2 between 3 of us. It was just about ok. The fondue (25 Euro a head) was as expected cheese with some milk and flour and I'd guess some wine.... More

Cafe Du Soleil is just down the road from us and we have visited probably a dozen times. Its got a very nice, but small front beer garden, plus a basic but cosy interior on two levels, with a room out the back. The service is fine, as well as the food, though that not many options. The beer options... More

As an amazing cute and tasty place the Cafe Du Soleil is a must have in Geneva. Order swiss Fondue or a Steak or even the fries were good. Price is fine, Staff is funny and professional. Anytime again.

Decided on dining here based on the reviews. From the Gare, it's a quick 10 minute/$20 taxi ride. Service was very good. The menu was great. Dinner was a good value for Geneva and for Switzerland. The restaurant quickly filled to capacity after 18:30 hours. However, The fondue was average. The restaurant ambiance was less. In summary, dinner was about... More

Busy place and our only reservation was for 9 pm but when we arrived early they still managed to accommodate us. Not much space but if you want good atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent fondue then very good choice. Would certainly go back
