Best fondue and cinnamon creme brulee

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!

This is a small, out of way restaurant, but our concierge at Starling Hotel recommended it for fondue. It was fantastic - especially for our first night in Geneva! Make sure to make reservations - it's very small and was packed - even on a Sunday night.

I'd been to this place years before and welcomed the opportunity to return with a Swiss friend who had recommended it for dinner. The bread was good so we started eating it even before they brought the cheese out. The fondue itself was delicious, if you like fondue that has a strong taste of alcohol. We washed the fondue down... More

I've been coming here for over 15 years so I know the menu inside out - or so I thought. On Sunday two friends and I went for lunch. We ordered a 5dl jug of white wine ... and then two more. We figured that buying the house wine would be cheaper than getting a bottle. Hell were we wrong.... More

I went there with friends and after a business meeting. I suggest it for both occasions. The occasional solo customer will also feel confortable. The fondue is excellent!

This old French-style café in Petit-Saconnex has been serving fondue, salads and more for decades. The only change is that the blue haze of cigarette smoke is now gone, but otherwise it continues as good as ever. The food is good value, the staff are enthusiastic, the furniture is plain, but the toilets have been upgraded. No surprise then that... More

Great Fondue restaurant in Geneva. Good Food, Good Beer, Good Wine. We (11 of us) eat upstairs which was quite noisy (a lot of that was down to us) as it was full, so if you want a quiet chat ask to be seated downstairs.

Best fondue I have tasted. Lovely atmosphere. I went on a Thursday for lunch and it was busy, plenty of locals. Friendly service. Delicious with a local Chasselas wine. No hesitation in recommending it.
