Swiss food for the visitor

This restaurant will provide, from its compact menu, many items known as Swiss food. Not particularly cheap, not particularly expensive. Pleasant, smaller place, busy.

Very good fondue. Simple setting, but tasty Swiss food. Very popular among delegates coming to UN meetings. A good idea to have a reservation.

Great place for a real cheese fondue. Almkost always full packed so be sure to reserve a table. Staff is very friendly, not much space on the tables.

A well established restaurant known for it's cheese fondue's. It has been there for a long time and is always full of locals, a great atmosphere and they have a small terrace. They offer simple good tasting food, steak & chips, pasta dishes and many local Swiss specialities. Staff are very friendly and efficient, definitely recommend.

I have visited Cafe du Soleil few times and each experience was really good. If you are looking for a good Swiss fondue around that neighborhood, it is the best choice. Staff is also very friendly and helpful.

This is a great place to sit outside and have a leisurely dinner. The menu is somewhat limited, but everyone in our group found something to their liking. I had a fish dish that was very tasty. If you're not counting calories, go for the fondue, which is rumored to be the best in the city. Service was prompt and... More

Lunch upstairs where you can consume until 14.30 and we stayed until 15.30 before they closed. Staff are very efficient, menu of the day is always good and service is always fast- too fast at times. Good place to be if in the neighbourhood

Not a huge menu, but everything we tasted was very good. Fondue was excellent, but so was the fish, steak and desserts. Full of locals. Very friendly staff but service was spotty -both times we went- from very attentive to very slow!

Affordable and in a convenient location, walking distance from Nations tram stop. I went there a dozen times and the fondue is rich. Steak with bell pepper or green butter is the top for me. Tables not big and may be crowded on peak dinner times. Should make reservation.
