This was real waste of time, money and opportunity!!!! Staff was indifferent to the guests, the plate of specialities was two sort of cured ham and a pice of cheese 2x2 cm small. Very dirty place and toilets worthy of a public bus station in Marokko Don't go, there a plenty better places I Geneva downtown.

This is definitely the best place for Swiss specialities. It was the best fondue I have ever had. Definitely worth the walk out of the center.

We had dinner at their new Plainpalais branch and took two admittedly-delicious portions of moitié-moitié fondue. Our hostess was very nice and insisted we have a little more when we were done. We were almost full, but figured why not. Just a small gratuity, restaurants do it all the time to get repeat clients! Right? Nope, an 18-franc surcharge on... More

Already several times I enjoyed their famous moitie-moitie fondue. Very friendly staff and good swiss cuisine specialized in treats from the area of Gruyere. Make sure to taste a good piece of tarte tatin with double cream of Gruyère. Sometimes it's a little too sweet ... During cold season reservation needed.

This is by far one of the best Swiss restaurants in Geneva. The fondues are just delicious, they have the traditional Half-half fondue, the hole vacherin, a goat cheese fondue or even a tomato fondue ! And you can feel the homie touch ! The dried meats are good, and the deserts... Oh the deserts ! If you are looking... More

In switzerland you don't usually go a restaurant to eat fondue, it's more something you do with your family or a bunch of friends at home. Restaurants that serve fondue and are not located in a ski resort are usually tourist traps and avoided by locals. How pleasantly was I suprised by le Gruyerien as the moitie moitie fondue was...

Wonderful fondue dinner in a quite traditional atmosphere. Food was very good, but the wine disappointing, especially the recommended white.

We went to le Gruyerien at the recommendation of our hotel's concierge. It was well worth the short cab ride from the river area. We let the waitress recommend both the wines and our meal and were really impressed. We had two fondues, the goat cheese and the half and half. They were both really different but each so wonderful.... More

I read about this place on the net & thought...yep we're going there. We ended up walking 4km to get there. Once there it was a cute & homely place. The inside was warm and smelt of cheese. I knew what I wanted before I even looked at the menu. Once the cheese fondue came out I couldn't believe my... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant out in the suburbs right on a tram line, so it was easy to get to. They have 2 locations but the hotel said this one was best. Good fondue and a cosy atmosphere.
